Sarah Nelson, Credentialed Veterinary Technician

Sarah received her undergraduate degree in journalism from CSU Chico and went on to enjoy a successful career at Hewlett Packard Company. During a downsizing period at HP, she decided to take advantage of the opportunity to leave HP and pursue a career either in human or animal nursing. Her lifelong love of animals won out and she attended Foothill College's Animal Health Technology program. She graduated in 1995 and passed the California State Veterinary Medical Board exam to become a Registered Veterinary Technician that same year. She began working with Dr. Mell at the Stanford Pet Clinic (now VCA Palo Alto Animal Hospital) in 1994 and enjoys developing long term relationships with clients and their pets. She has a particular fondness for senior pets and the challenges they can present. Sarah loves being a mom to her own cats who range in age from 4 to 16 years old. She also enjoys mixed media crafting, hiking and is an avid SF Giants fan!
