    I’m Sara Sharp. I have worked at Dogwood for over a year. I started in the kennel and worked my way to reception and nursing. Working with animals is by far the most rewarding job I’ve ever had. I have two furbabies of my own, my sweet Chihuahua, Lulu, and my cat, Stevie, both of whom I acquired from working in the clinic. I enjoy camping, kayaking, and of course spending time with my family, 2 legged and 4. I look forward to meeting you and your furbabies here at the clinic.
