On behalf of our entire staff, let me welcome you to Stonebriar Veterinary Centre. I am a native of North Texas and I am proud to call Frisco my home. I was lucky to have grown up surrounded by a variety of farm and companion animals. It gave me joy and pride to help care for them and laid the foundation for the rest of my life’s work. Having practiced for several years in a variety of clinics doing relief work, I gained a unique perspective to assist me in building my dream – a practice focused on exceptional medical care, patient comfort and client service. My professional interests include dentistry, client education, behavioral counseling, and general surgery.

I am a native of San Juan, Puerto Rico and decided to leave the sunshine and experience college life in the Midwest. After graduation, I had the opportunity to spend time in San Diego at the Wild Animal Park and Avian and Exotic Animal Hospital of San Diego. This is where I met my husband Michael. We relocated to Scottsdale, Arizona in 1995 where I spent 8 years working alongside a doctor who specialized in dermatology. This was an extremely valuable experience for me. My husband’s job transferred us to Dallas in 2003 and I have been fortunate to work at Stonebriar Veterinary Centre since 2005. It is amazing to be able to work in a place where patient care is the number one priority.

Texas is very special to us since this is where our sons Dante and Vasco were born. When I’m not busy with them, I love to do yoga and read. I also sit on the board of Mosaic Family Services.

We share our home with our three beloved Yorkies, “Franco”,” Eva” and “Lego”. My special areas of professional interest include internal medicine, dermatology, soft tissue surgery and small mammal medicine. My sincere commitment is to offer you the most honest and highest quality medicine and surgery available. Our goal is to keep your furry companion healthy and happy for many, many years to come. I look forward to seeing you soon!

  • Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, Texas A&M University, 1998

I have wanted to be a veterinarian since I was young child and left my best friend, a sheltie named Lady, at the veterinary clinic for surgery. Initially, I just wanted to be the one that got to stay with her instead of leave her behind for care. However once I picked her up, took her home, and noticed how much better she felt, I was determined to be the person that made all our four legged best friends feel better.

Thankfully, I had a very supportive family that let me escape my Sooner upbringing to go to Texas A&M University and follow my dream. I spent eight great years in College Station working through my undergraduate degree as well as my DVM. I met my husband, Christopher, while I was in veterinary school and he was completing a Masters in Engineering. After graduation, we moved to the Frisco area where we both found great jobs. We have been blessed with two great children whom we love to watch enjoy life and play sports. I was fortunate when they were young to have the opportunity to work at the Emergency Animal Hospital of Collin County.

During my seven years at the EAHCC, I was given the opportunity to become familiar with the day clinics in the area. It became evident to me that Stonebriar Veterinary Centre was determined to be amongst the best in the area. The doctors’ commitment to patient care and comfort was evident in their detailed transfer paperwork and phone calls. Beyond that their dedication to client education made me realize it would be a great place to work. When given the opportunity to join their team, I jumped at the chance and have loved my time here ever since then.

Shannon Baber, DVM

During my years in practice, I have developed a strong interest in dentistry as well as furthering my education and certification on the Eastern medicine side. My hope is to bridge the gap between western and eastern medicine, being able to offer my patients the best of both worlds. My goal as a practitioner is to provide the best medical care available to your beloved pets and share my knowledge with pet parents to help them make the best health care decisions for their four- legged family members. I am excited to join the team at Stonebriar Veterinary Centre!
I was born in Lakenheath, England but raised in Omaha, NE and Plano, TX. I was truly blessed to spend my years in Aggieland while obtaining my undergraduate and veterinary degrees. I started practice in the Dallas area in 2000 until my husband’s job took us on an adventure to Maryland. There we spent 4 years until we decided to come home to Texas to be near family. We have called Frisco home for the past 12 years and have enjoyed raising our family here.
When not working, I enjoy being outdoors, hiking especially, photography and cooking. I look forward to being part of your pet’s health care team for years to come!
