Dr. Áine Schanche is an Associate Veterinarian at TotalBond Veterinary Hospital at Davidson. Dr. Schanche earned her Bachelor of Science from Swarthmore College in 2016 and earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 2020.

She joined the TotalBond family in 2021, primarily working at the TotalBond at Bethel hospital. Her areas of professional interest include ultrasound, surgery, and preventative care. Dr. Schanche was inspired to join the veterinary field after spending several weeks shadowing mixed animal veterinarians in Ireland and falling in love with the unpredictable, rewarding field! According to Dr. Schanche, the best part about being a veterinarian is being able to educate clients on how they can help their pets live the healthiest lives!

Although Dr. Schanche grew up in northern New Jersey, her mother is from Ireland and her father is from Norway. Dr. Schanche keeps busy outside of work by playing with her 6-year-old standard schnauzer named Siggi and her corgi/mini aussie puppy named Suki.

Makenzie M.

Veterinary Assistant

Born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee, Makenzie decided after attending Maryville College to move somewhere new and found herself here around the Charlotte area. She loves how similar it is to her home state but that it comes with new people and adventures. Makenzie has 2 dogs currently- Reign, a 5-year-old long haired German Shepherd and JellyBean, a 10-year-old Jack Russell mix (quite the pair). She loves to take both dogs just about anywhere she goes, whether it's hiking, breweries, the beach, etc. If she goes, they go!

Makenzie remembers from a young age, her entire family talking about the connection she had with animals. Growing up around tons of animals; from cats and dogs to horses- you name it, she knew she always wanted to work in the vet field. After her first internship, she fell in love with teching. Spending every day with animals is a dream come true for her. the most rewarding part being able to care for a sick animal and seeing them become healthy again and living their best life.

In her free time, Makenzie enjoys being a dog mom, traveling, spending time with friends and family, wake surfing, hiking, really any outdoor activity (except for bee keeping- recently discovered bee allergy).
