Happy National Veterinary Technician Week to our amazing technician Sarah!  Sarah grew up in the veterinary field.  Raised in Wisconsin, her mom was and still is an office manager at a veterinary clinic, where Sarah spent much of her time. Sarah met her husband in the community orchestra while she was in college and moved to Ames, IA.  While in Ames, Sarah attended DMACC where she earned a degree as a veterinary technician in 2010 and then continued at Iowa State University where she earned a degree in Animal Science in 2013.  After graduating from technician school, Sarah started working at Iowa Veterinary Specialties in the ER department and also helped in Dermatology, Surgery, Oncology and Internal Medicine.  She recently moved to Shell Rock with her husband, Chris, and daughter, Charlotte, to be closer to her husband’s family farm.  Sarah has 3 dogs, Amelia and Neville who are Golden retrievers and Peggy, a lab mix and 2 cats, Walle and Jarvis.  In her free time she enjoys going to ISU football games, being outside, training her dogs, and spending time with her daughter and family.  Thank you Sarah for all of your hard work!
