Sarah joined Leadon Vale at the beginning of 2021 but she already knew the practice well, having trained here throughout her time at veterinary school.
Sarah is originally from Worcestershire and grew up in a veterinary family as her grandfather and aunt were both vets and her grandfather had his own practice locally.
Sarah has always loved all species and aspects of veterinary medicine. She trained at Bristol Veterinary School – qualifying in 1999 and initially worked in mixed practice. After the devastating effects of foot and mouth on UK farming, she moved into purely equine and small animal practice. She worked as an equine vet in a large referral hospital for a few years before returning to small animal work. She has spent the last 11 years in a large small animal Hospital, working alongside referral vets across a number of disciplines.
Sarah prides herself on being a general practitioner and works hard to keep herself at the forefront of the many fields of veterinary care - both medical and surgical.
All Sarah’s pets have been rescues, from recuperating ex racehorses with fractures to her current duo – 2 rescue kittens that she hand reared over the first lock-down.
Sarah is married with identical, twin daughters who play a lot of hockey. Having spent most of her spare time ferrying them back and forth, she decided that if you can’t beat them – join them and now plays hockey regularly herself.
Outside of work and sport – Sarah enjoys cooking and baking.
