Hi, I’m Sarah. I am attending Colorado Preparatory Academy as well as CSU Global. I grew up on a small farm outside of Greeley, Colorado. Naturally, that is where my love for animals first began. As a kid, there wasn’t much you could do to get me off my horse’s back and even when you could, you were bound to find me hanging out with some form of critter whether that be my dogs, cats, or even a few chickens if no one else was around!
Today, things still haven’t changed! I am frequently hanging out or working with my horses. I have a dog named Sage who is the sweetest thing and a cat named Felix who is a crazy ball of fur! I plan on becoming a veterinarian one day, and in the meantime, I am here to learn as much as I can. Truthfully, I hope there is never a day where I don’t have an animal around.
I am a Colorado native and graduated from Greeley West High school in 2017. After graduation, I attended North Eastern junior college for a year and returned home to start my path as a veterinary technician. I attended Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology and earned my Associate of Applied Science Degree. I was then allowed to sit for the state credential testing. I officially became certified in April of 2021. I enjoy every aspect of working at a general practice.
When I am not at work you can find me outside enjoying activities, doing crafts, or spending time with my wonderful family. I have two adorable boxers that are my life and of course, I am always looking to add more to our silly bunch.
I grew up in a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri. My love for animals started from going to my grandma’s farm every summer. We moved to Colorado about 5 years ago to be near our children and grandchildren. I have been a widow since December 2022. My husband Mark and I were married 32 years. We have one daughter together. Her name is Jenna Sue, and she is beautiful, talented and works at a veterinarian clinic in Brighton, CO.
Mark had two children from a previous marriage. Kindra, who has given us five beautiful grandkids, 1 step-grandson and three adopted granddaughters. Mark also had a son, Cayle, who passed away at 21 years old. I have worked with animals and at two veterinary clinics since 1991. I learned to groom dogs and did that professionally for many years.
Currently I own one dog (Jude) and two cats (Ringo and Luna). I have been working for Dr. Gabel for almost four years. It has been such a blessing to be part of her staff. I have learned so much and I have grown to love the clients and their pets with a passion. I look forward to helping Dr. Gabel in her practice and helping take care of animals for a very long time.
