Veterinary Assistant / Client Service

Sarah’s father was a veterinarian at an emergency clinic in her home state of California, and she loved going to work with him whenever she could. Some of her earliest memories include helping to bring newborn puppies into the world! For Sarah, working in veterinary medicine is her way of giving something back to the pets who have offered her so much over the years.

A lover of science and anatomy ever since she was young, Sarah attended Iowa State University to earn a degree in biology. After graduation, she brought her own dog here to the clinic to see Dr. Kruse. It wasn’t long before she was offered a job! Now, Sarah serves the pets and animal parents of the area as a Veterinary Assistant, and has become particularly fond of laboratory work and one-on-one interactions with clients and patients.

In her time away from work, Sarah likes swimming, surfing, hiking, horseback riding, and spending time with her family and pets at home. She and her husband have three young daughters, a crazy cat named Hiccup who truly rules the roost, and three English mastiffs: Maizey, Kenai, and Faith.
