Dr. Sara grew up in a small farming town in central California. She attended the University of San Diego and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Marine Science with honors. After graduation she served in the U.S. Navy as a P-3C Naval Flight Officer. After leaving active duty Dr. Sara pursued her passion for medicine, and graduated with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Florida, also with high honors. Her veterinary interests include soft tissue surgery and dermatology. Dr. Sara’s medical philosophy is centered around the human-companion bond, and she aims to support that in whatever ways are possible.
When not at the clinic, Dr. Sara indulges in the many wonderful outdoor activities our island has to offer (surfing, paddle boarding, SCUBA, snorkeling, hiking, and running). Her family includes her husband Franz, daughters Dixie and Betty, and dog Snow and cat Archie.
