If I could, I would have a whole house full of furry friends, but for now I have a dog named Willow and cat named Sophie.

Sarah, Assistant

I’ve been working with animals since I started my first job as a teenager at a boarding and grooming facility. Later, I attended the Michigan School of Canine Cosmetology and began grooming for several years. My passion for helping pets brought me to veterinary medicine and Cole Veterinary Hospital in January 2016. When I’m not at work, you can find me grooming dogs or hanging out with my husband and our beautiful children.

My love for animals and fascination with science has led me to work with veterinarians in the Saginaw area for over 20 years. In addition, I have worked at a pet store and was a docent for the Saginaw Children’s Zoo for 7 years. When I joined the Cole Vet team in 1999, I quickly found an extended family. My home has always been filled with an assortment of critters. Currently, I have a dog, a cat and 2 human children.

Cats (Squints, Mouse & Missy)

Squints is our one-eyed Torti & our original clinic cat. She loves to visit clients & help with appointments. Mouse is our special Covid rescue kitty. He is sensitive to a lot of things, but he is our designated hall monitor & seat warmer. Missy is our surrendered princess. She enjoys belly rubs and naps. Canned food & treats are the way to her heart.
