We are excited to welcome Dr. Sarah Lee to the Canine Companions veterinary team. Sarah, a Bay Area native, received a B.S. in psychology from U.C. Davis in 2004 and then received a doctorate of veterinary medicine from Western University of Health Sciences Veterinary School in 2008. While in school, she worked with various animal rescue groups and the Marin Humane Society. Since 2009, she worked locally at Redwood Veterinary Clinic as a general practitioner and emergency clinician until transitioning to Canine Companions. Sarah loves veterinary medicine, but when she isn’t working, she is usually with her kids, spending time in the backyard with her chickens or hiking with her dog Sam. Sarah is looking forward to meeting and working with the wonderful staff and volunteers.
