She has been an animal lover since she was a small child and has had a variety of pets: dogs, cats, birds a guinea pig and even a lizard. Sarah loves working at a mobile clinic as opposed to a traditional veterinary clinic because she says, "when making house calls you get to know your patients so much better and connect with them in their own environment and you get to know the clients on a personal level. I love working for a small mobile clinic.It is much more intimate". She says, "We are so lucky to get to help animals and their owners everyday and I'm so grateful to be working for Dr. McIntyre who is so compassionate and cares so much for her patients".
