Sara, originally from Ontario came to beautiful British Columbia to complete her bachelor’s degree in animal biology at the University of British Columbia. After completing this she went to the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph, Ontario to complete her DVM degree. Having fallen in love with the province and the variety of outdoor activities BC had to offer she decided to start her career as a veterinarian in British Columbia. She completed a rigorous emergency and critical care internship at BBVSH and is now working as a full-time emergency veterinarian. She likes to spend her days off with her partner and friends getting as much outdoor activity in as possible, some of her favorites include skiing, hiking, camping and cycling. She also has two bengal cats at home; Miss and Mya who have helped her through her career as well as other cats as they are blood donors at BBVSH.
