He is co-owner of the Double Arrow Veterinary Clinic in Enterprise and enjoys the variety that a small-town, mixed-animal veterinary practice provides.

They have a few acres out of town where they enjoy their dog, 3 cats, 4 horses, one mule, several chickens, and an occasional orphaned bison. Dr. Greenshields also enjoys camping with his family as well as hiking, trail running, and bowhunting in the high mountains of the Eagle Cap Wilderness area.
