Dr. Yu graduated from Tufts University and joined the VCA family in 2013.

Sharon E.
Hospital Manager

I have been an animal lover for as long as I can remember. My parents say since about four years old when my dad brought home our first rescue dog. The years have flown by and it has now been over 30 years since I have joined VCA. I enjoy working in all departments alongside my Associates and have been in management for about 20 years. In my free time, I enjoy working with wood, such as scroll sawing, and turning wood with a lathe and gardening. I have a seven-year-old cat named Thomas and a five-year-old beagle mix named Bruticus.
