Sarah was born in Danville, but spent most of her childhood in Blairs on a country farm owned by her grandparents. It was there that she discovered a lifelong love for animals of all kinds. She spent her mornings feeding chickens, goats, and cows and her evenings befriending barn cats and teaching her first dog every trick imaginable.
As a young adult, Sarah attended Averett University and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in journalism and communications. It was during this time that she took a job as a dog bather at Petco and discovered a passion for pet grooming. She applied herself to learning the required skills and moved up from bather to groomer to salon manager in only a few years.
Sarah spends her free time with her husband in their home in Danville. They play video games and travel together whenever they get the chance. They have five beloved pets: Linus the dog, Burton the tortoise, and three cats named Sammy, Junebug, and Shiori. In her free time, Sarah also enjoys reading, writing, and making custom crafts such as pet portraits using the art of woodburning.
Sarah loves getting to know her clients and their furbabies and always strives to treat them like family. She believes that every pet deserves to have a happy, stress-free grooming experience where they can feel comfortable and be pampered. She is very excited to be a part of the team at Family Vet and looks forward to grooming for you!
