Certified Veterinary Technician

Back in grade school, Sara was always the one volunteering to watch after the class pets. For as long as she can remember, she’s had a longing to be involved in animal care! Now she gets to live her dream of working hands-on with pets as a Veterinary Technician here at Brook-Falls Veterinary Hospital and Exotic Care.

Sara attended Mankato State University in Minnesota before moving to Milwaukee and enrolling in Milwaukee Career College’s Veterinary Technician program. During school, she gained experience at local shelters and farms, and also completed two externships at local animal clinics. She graduated from the program in 2015 and will soon become a licensed Veterinary Technician!

One of Sara’s favorite parts of her work is examining slides under the microscope. For her, the search for invading parasites or bacteria is quite fun! Sara also enjoys preparing pets for surgery. Most of all, she loves sharing her knowledge with pet owners to better the lives of animals.

In her spare time, Sara enjoys getting out in nature, crafting, and making toys for her two playful sugar gliders, Louie and Ella. Sara also keeps two cats: Boots, a black and white tuxedo cat who Sara picked up at a farm, and Hank, an orange and white cat who was rescued from a Milwaukee shelter.
