Meet the Staff

Hola! Y Bienvenidos al hospital de animales de North Hills.

Estoy muy orgullosa de servir a la comunidad hispana y a mis compratriotas colombianos.

Hice mis estudios pre profesionales en Georgia State University en énfasis en Biología y luego me transladé a Universidad de Georgia para mi doctorado en veterinaria.

Antes de graduarme, trabajé en el campo de la veterinaria por 10 años ayudando a otros veterinarios y haciendo trabajo comunitario. Además de mi grado veterinario, tengo entrenamiento especializado en cirugía ortopédica.

Soy miembro activo de AVMA, GVMA y también soy acreditada por el Departamento de Agricultura de Estado Unidos- USDA.

​Espero conocerlos pronto!

Hello and Welcome to North Hills Animal Hospital!

Most of you know me as Dr. Jeannette. I am originally from Colombia.

I finished my undergraduate studies at Georgia State University and received my DVM degree from the University of Georgia in 2013. I hold severaI certificates in advanced orthopedic surgery and I am member of the AVMA and I am USDA accredited.

Years ago I worked as a relief veterinarian and I noticed how expensive a veterinary visit could be! Therefore, when I bought North Hills, I made a commitment to provide high quality medicine at a reasonable fee for all. 

For fun, I ride my motorcycle to the GA mountains. I live with my teens, 6 cats and one dog-Thor. 

Dr. Yanneth Shuykin DVM

I am lifelong animal lover. I grew up in Guayaquil, Ecuador where I developed my passion for animals at a young age as my family raised numerous animals in our household.


I later earned a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the Universidad Agraria del Ecuador and I am currently pursuing the recognition for get my credentials by the American Veterinary Medical Association.


I live with my husband Paul and my four dogs: Peluso, Lengui, Caramelita, and Einstein. I have dreams to one day work with animals in Africa.

Hi, my name is Huldana Ashebir and I work as one of the Vet Techs at North Hills Animal Hospital.


I'm a Georgia native currently residing in Gwinnett. Growing up I was always drawn to working with animals which is why I've worked in animal care for 4+ years. I completed my undergrad at Oglethorpe University and recently decided to further pursue a career in Veterinary Medicine.


In my spare time, you can catch me hiking trails at any one of Georgia's beautiful parks, hanging out with family and friends, and going to the movies.

I was born and raised in Atlanta,Ga. I graduated from Norcross High School. I knew from a young age that I wanted to work with animals and have never considered another career path.


I am lucky to have found my passion so early in life. In my spare time I really enjoy down time with my son,fur babies and my husband .We have two cats name Prada & Fendi who we spoil incessantly and we wouldn’t have it any other way!


I have realized since childhood that animals bring so much joy to a household.

I was born in Piedras Negras, Mexico City, raised in Atlanta, Ga. I graduated from Elizabeth Andrews in 2009.


Since a young age I had a passion for animals, growing up my brother and I had a sheep dog, parakeets and a tank full of gold fish. Pets are wonderful companions for children and adults.


I can honestly say my fur baby Dumpling bring nothing but joy to my household. One of my life long dream is to travel to Thailand and visit Monkey Island, that’s an experience that I know I will remember for the rest of my life.

I’ve always loved animals, particularly dogs and cats. I have a Jack Russell who has received the absolutely best care from Dr. Shuykin and at a very reasonable cost.


So many folks have a rough time funding their pet’s medical needs so anything I’m able to do to assist that effort is a gift to me as well.

Having retired, I am so happy to spend additional time with pups and kitties at North Hills. And many of the “parents” of these babies (no matter their age) are wonderful as well.


Having the opportunity to experience such meetings and the gift of the “kisses” is just the best.

Thor is an English Cream Golden Retriever and he is a very important staff member at North Hills. 


Thor is our blood donor!!

So far Thor has saved the life of many of our precious patients. 

Because of his important role, every time Thor donates blood he goes under hospitalization until we make sure he is back to normal. 

He loves cats although cats sometimes don't appreciate when he checks on them.

We keep Thor very healthy by administering his heartworm and flea prevention on monthly basis. He is under daily physical exams as Dr. Shuykin is his owner.
