StaffSarah Rowe, Practice Manager

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.

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.
