Hospital Manager

Sarah graduated from Saint Joseph’s College of Maine with a bachelor’s degree in pre-veterinary medicine in 2010. She moved to the Gainesville area about 4 years ago and fell in love with all it has to offer.

Sarah has always had a great affinity for animals which has led her to have a crazy dog and three mischievous cats of her own. She enjoys reading, kayaking and exploring all of Florida’s natural treasures in her free time.



Javier has been a technician with us since August of 2014. He comes from Miami, where he showed cattle and poultry for the FFA organization.

He has a handsome cat named “Yang” and a slithery boa named “Hades”. Javier loves to exercise and body build in his free time. In his spare time, he enjoys wildlife photography.



Cassie has just relocated to Gainesville from Kentucky. She graduated from Murray State University with a bachelor’s of science in agriculture in 2015. Cassie is hoping to soon pass the Veterinary Technician National Examination and become a certified technician. She shares her home with her husband, two kids, two cats and two dogs.
