Dr. Shanna Nelson

Associate Veterinarian, DVM (Equine & Small Animal)

I grew up in southwest Missouri, went to Drury University for undergrad and the University of Missouri for vet school, and then did an internship near Kansas City at an equine referral practice before coming to Fox Creek. I started riding horses at a young age and became interested in their keeping and medical care as a result. I love being an advocate for the patient and helping the animal to live its happiest, healthiest life while managing the expectations and concerns of the owner.

I am a member of the AAEP (American Association of Equine Practitioners) and I have a research background accrued as a veterinary student (two studies regarding the endocrinopathic mechanism of laminitis and the patterns of naturally-occurring compensatory lameness). My awards include previous prestigious scholarships from the AAEP, AQHA (American Quarter Horse Association), Phi Zeta Veterinary Honor Society, ACVIM (American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine), and the Gentle Doctor award. My passions include preventative medicine and general animal welfare/husbandry to improve the human/animal bond.

My family consists of my fiancé, Jeremie, is a research scientist. Together, we have a dog, Dobie; three cats, Ophelia, Xena, and Gaia; two guinea pigs, Atlas and Chronos; and a chinchilla, Petra. I also have two horses named Brandy and Bones.

In my free time I enjoy music, creating artwork, hiking, and exploring.


Dr. Rebecca Nichols

Associate Veterinarian, DVM

Dr Rebecca Nichols is a 2008 graduate of the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine. She completed a one year small animal rotating internship in Seattle, Washington, and spent the next several years in small animal practice before moving back to the Midwest in 2013 to join the staff at Stray Rescue of St Louis. While at the animal rescue, she picked up many skills, including minimally invasive sterilization techniques, management of canine and feline behavior problems, and effective strategies to treat and contain infectious diseases. Even though she found shelter medicine very rewarding, Dr Nichols missed the relationships she was able to develop while caring for other people’s pets. She was very excited to join the team at Fox Creek Veterinary Hospital in 2019. While her special interests include surgery and dermatology, Dr Nichols enjoys anything that will help strengthen the bond between an owner
and their pet.

Dr Nichols lives in Chesterfield with her husband Mark, her kids (Zach, Annie, and Ben), two dogs (Chance and Cricket), and single cat (Felix). In her spare time she enjoys hanging out with her family, doing art with her kids, gardening, and occasionally taking in a yoga class.

Dr. Candice Corrigan

Associate Veterinarian, DVM

Dr. Candice Corrigan is an Associate Veterinarian at Fox Creek Veterinary Hospital. Dr. Corrigan began working in the veterinary field in 1998 as a Veterinary Assistant at Rolling Hills Veterinary Clinic in Columbia, MO while she was in undergraduate studies. Dr. Corrigan then earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in May 2004 from the University of Missouri, Columbia. She was inspired to pursue veterinary medicine after spending significant time at a veterinary hospital after adopting a dog with her roommate in 1997. At the time, she was working towards her B.S. Honors in Biology and decided to transition to pre-veterinary studies. Dr. Corrigan says the best part of working in veterinary medicine is building relationships with animals and their owners/guardians. She loves getting the opportunity to help pets and in turn, help their families strengthen the human-animal bond.

Originally from Bridgeton, MO, she moved to Portland, OR for one year, and Colorado Springs, CO for three years after graduating veterinary school, and returned home to St. Louis, MO. She has lived in Eureka, MO since 2008 and shares a home with her three children, Clara, Nolan, and Avery. Dr. Corrigan and her family also care for their three dogs, Ruby, Romeo, and Todd, cat, Samuel, hamster, Daphne, and turtle, Shelly. When Dr. Corrigan isn’t providing exceptional veterinary medicine, she enjoys gardening, running 5K races, hiking, and doing arts and crafts with her children. A fun fact about Dr. Corrigan is that she can still do flips on her trampoline!

In addition to veterinary medicine, Dr. Corrigan volunteers at her daughter’s school, Most Sacred Heart School in Eureka, and also at The Endangered Wolf Center in Eureka.

Dr. Andy Schroeck

Associate Veterinarian, DVM

Dr. Andy Schroeck is the newest veterinarian at Fox Creek Veterinary Hospital!

Dr. Schroeck began working in the veterinary field in 2015 and his areas of interest include dentistry and anesthesia. The best part about being a veterinarian, according to Dr. Schroeck, is getting to work with people every day who share his compassion for animals and desire to help strengthen the human-animal bond between owners and their pets. He values being able to help owners better understand the functions (and disfunctions) of their beloved companions.

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Dr. Schroeck recently moved to Creve Coeur, Missouri where he lives with his significant other, who also happens to be a veterinarian, and their two rescued guinea pigs named Thad and Thud. In his spare time, Dr. Schroeck enjoys weightlifting, bike riding, golfing, watching The Office, spending time with family and friends, volunteering as a camp counselor for children with Muscular Dystrophy, and rooting on his favorite sports teams – most notably the Cleveland Browns. Dr. Schroeck is so excited to meet the clients of Fox Creek and get to know your pets!

The course consisted of 210 hours of instruction and hands on learning for animal chiropractic, working with both small and large animals. She then became certified through the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association (IVCA).

Dr. Georgevitch has always had a passion for animals. Her family has a farm where they raise cattle, have horses and 4 dogs.

Professional Dog Trainer

I joined Fox Creek Veterinary Hospital in early 2020 as a dog trainer. I grew up in Los Angeles, California. I got my first dog when I was twelve years old and found a passion in dog training. At fifteen years old I won my first World Championship in the sport of disc dog and at the age of eighteen I was offered an unique job as a traveling performer and dog trainer for stunt dog shows. Since then, I have traveled across North America with my dogs performing in front of millions, working with hundreds of dogs, and continuing my dog training education. I have attended seminars heard by some of the most successful dog trainers in the world, I am a certified Canine Conditioning and Fitness Trainer through the University of Tennessee, a certified Trick Dog Instructor, and A CGC Evaluator. After five years of traveling, teaching, and performing, I decided it was finally time to settle down. When I was looking for a place that was centrally located Missouri seemed like a great place to put down roots of my own.

I have always loved dog training, relationship building with animals and the challenges that come with that has always interested me. When I was in High School my goal was to be able to create prosthetics for injured and disabled animals so they could live a better quality of life. My goals and passions pushed me to graduate early and I went to college to major in Biomechanical Engineering. When I was a sophomore I left college to pursue a career in traveling, performance, and training. I found that the impact I made from showing people what dogs are capable of through relationship building and training was incredibly rewarding.

I currently own 10 dogs and a rabbit. My rabbit is a purebred New Zealand named Snickerdoodle who is being trained to do tricks for commercials. My dogs are mostly rescues and mixed breeds. Their names are Presto Change-o, Hocus Pocus, Wizard, Merlin, Tarot Card, Calypso, Hex, Hijack, WOAH!, and Chopstick. All together we live on eight acres of wooded land where we run and train all day, and sleep in bed all night.

My biggest achievement on paper is my World Championship win at the age of fifteen. However, personally I think my greatest achievement is building such an awesome pack of talented, well trained dogs. Our current goal is to work on more commercials, television shows, and photo ads. I always love seeing my dog’s faces on the big screen!

Hi! My name is Tony! I was born here at Fox Creek in Jan. 2006. I enjoy naps in our laundry room and I enjoy an occasional laser pointer party. I love my home and I get a lot of attention from my loving family! Please stop by sometime to pet me ?
