Meet Sara, the newest extern to join the Craig Road Animal Hospital team!

Sara is currently a 4th-year student at the University of Missouri (Mizzou) and will graduate in May 2021. She grew up outside of St. Louis, Missouri in a small town called Troy and was active in the 4-H Club and Future Farmers of America.

“I grew up showing horses and other livestock and developed a love for all animals early on,” Sara said. “I have a passion for agriculture and the animals that it includes which lead me easily into veterinary medicine.”

Sara attended William Woods University in Fulton, MO where she studied Biology with an Equestrian Science minor. She went straight to Mizzou after receiving her Bachelor’s degree. Sara plans on working in a companion animal hospital outside of St. Louis once she graduates and plans on enjoying her love of livestock and agriculture on the side.

She applied to the externship program at Craig Road to gain some experience in a large, busy hospital, as well as to explore the city of Las Vegas.

“I enjoy private practice with a special interest in oncology and dentistry,” Sara said.

In her free time, Sara enjoys being outside, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. She has a Border Collie named Dixie and two Arabian horses named Mirage and Aamira.

Welcome to the team, Sara!
