StaffSarah Rowe - Practice Manager

Office Manager Sarah Rowe has been helping Bath Animal Hospital run smoothly since May of 1994. She's involved in all aspects of the practice, from customer service, tracking inventory, employee training and staff management, maintaining our website and filling in as a veterinary technician as needed.

Her longevity, she said, "has given me the opportunity to have unique relationships with our clients." Like all of us, she feels that Bath is a "wonderful little city" to work and live.

Sarah has two cats, Ranger and Punky, and two dogs, Higbee and Jessie. She and her husband have three children, and they all enjoy spending time outdoors, going to their family camp, heading out on day adventures to the beach and other places in Maine. "But most of all we enjoy watching our three boys grow and learn about the world around them," she said.

StaffJessi Colla - Veterinary Technician

Jessi joined our team at Bath Animal Hospital in September 2017 as our veterinary technician. She works alongside our vets to perform lab work, note patient histories, monitor patients during surgeries and anesthesia work, and keep and open line of communication with the families of our patients.

“I enjoy being a comforting presence to nervous animals and getting to see our young patients grow more into themselves and into their unique personalities with each visit,” Jessi says when asked about her favorite part of the job.

Her history of working with at-risk youths going through stressful transitions in life gives her a better understanding when working with stressed or nervous animals. “It is important to try to understand the animal’s emotions and reactions in the moment, as well as to provide the best care possible according to that patient’s specific needs,” she says.

At home, Jessi has two sweet cats – Jack, a 5-year- old Bombay mix who enjoys sun rays, purring in laps, and motorized mice, and Henry, a 4-year- old Russian Blue mix who enjoys 3AM laps around the house, the neighbor’s bird feeder, and finding the tallest perch in her kitchen. In her free time, she enjoys kitting, embroidery, writing, interior decorating, crafting and sewing.
