Sarah joined the staff at Autumn Green Animal Hospital in February of 2023. Her grooming career covers nearly three decades and she spent several years in the competitive grooming arena. She’s won numerous awards, including Best All-Around Groomer at the H.H. Backer show in Chicago.

Sarah has always been an animal lover, and took her mother seriously when, as a child, she was told, “When you grow up and have your own house, you can have as many animals as you want, but in this house, we have two.” Someone should have warned her husband! Sarah has four dogs and four cats, all rescued! She has been an advocate for animal rescue for years, and fostered numerous dogs and puppies. After three foster failures, her husband said, “no more fostering!”

When she’s not taking care of her clients at the clinic, Sarah can be found with some combination of her human family, which include her husband, 2 adult children, two high schoolers, and the littlest who was adopted in 2017. In her spare time you can find her kickboxing or cozied up with a cup of tea in one hand and a good book in the other.

“I am humbled each time a client trusts me with their beloved pet. It is truly an honor and a privilege!”
