Education: Kirkwood Community College
Sarah Lynn has lived in Cedar Rapids for many years now after relocating from the East Coast. She is originally from the state of Virginia and has lived in many states due to her father’s military service. She graduated from Kirkwood Community College in 2010 as a Veterinary Assistant and joined Petersen Pet Hospital shortly after. However, her training didn’t start at Kirkwood! She started training to be in the veterinary field at the early age of eight. Her childhood companions were very helpful in perfecting her bandaging technique.
She finds her position very gratifying and loves doing her part to assist in keeping our clients fur-babies happy and healthy. You will most likely meet her as she is checking in your pet for their appointment, but spends most of her time assisting with your pet’s medical treatments or surgical procedures. She is very passionate in her role at Petersen Pet Hospital and is working towards earning her degree as a Registered Veterinary Technician.
Sarah Lynn’s family is composed of her parents, two older brothers and a nephew. Their family pets include a yellow Labrador Retriever named Chloe, a Catahoula Leopard Dog named Jasper, a Golden Retriever named Ruby, and three cats: Zoey, Isabel, and Madee. Sarah Lynn also cares for her rambunctious German Shepherd Chica, her mischievous cat Dexter, and the princess of her household; her other cat Alphie.
