DR. THERESA DEGELDER, DVM
I joined the Forest Glade Animal Hospital team in 1993 as an Associate Veterinarian and eventually became a practice owner. When not at work, I can be found tending to my beautiful garden. I also enjoy camping and hiking with my husband, two teenage sons and two golden retrievers Sophie and Ace.

I joined the team at Forest Glade & Tecumseh Animal Hospitals as an Associate Veterinarian after graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2019. Originally from the Greater Toronto Area, I am excited to explore all that Essex County has to offer. When I’m not working, I enjoy reading, cooking, and living an active lifestyle.
DR. SHANNA PERRY,
B.SC. (Hon), B.VET.MED, CVA
I joined the Forest Glade Animal Hospital team in 2013 and eventually became a practice owner. Prior to my return home, I worked on both large and small animals in Midland Ontario and then moved to Bracebridge where I focused on small animals, particularly learning the art of acupuncture. Since being at Forest Glade I have taken special interest in orthopaedic surgery and I love the challenge! When I'm not 'knee' deep in work, I love all aspects of life near the great lakes - swimming, boating, camping and sunsets with my young family, our 3 cats and dog Hank.
DR. ESTHER MCCORMICK,
I am a lifelong resident of Essex County with a passion for animals of all shapes and sizes. I have been an Associate Veterinarian with Forest Glade Animal Hospital since 2007. When I'm not practicing veterinary medicine, I am an avid reader who loves to garden, bake and travel with my husband and three young children. I share my home and barn with a dozen nubian goats, chickens and our lab mix Ruby.
DR. HEATHER EGAN, DVM (Hon)
Born and raised in Windsor, I joined the team at Forest Glade & Tecumseh Animal Hospitals as an Associate Veterinarian in 2019, following a decade in private practice. In my time away from the hospitals, I enjoy yoga, reading and camping with my husband, three children and our French Bulldog Rex.
DR. AMANDA SEGEREN, B.SC. (HON), MVB (HON)
I joined the team at Forest Glade & Tecumseh Animal Hospitals as an Associate Veterinarian after graduating from the University College Dublin School of Veterinary Medicine in 2021. I was born and raised on a pig farm in Chatham-Kent. Travelling, hiking, camping and spending time with my family are a few of my favourite things. My two nieces and two nephews have stolen my heart, along with my fur baby Tucker. I am so grateful to be working in a career I've had a passion for since day one!
