Sierra

Veterinary Technician

Sierra has been working in the animal field since she was 16 years of age. Her first job working at a kennel taking care of dogs was where she first fell in love with animal care. She then went on to working in the veterinary field as a receptionist and that’s when she knew this was her calling. She went from traditional veterinary medicine, to animal shelter medicine, to holistic medicine and fell back into traditional veterinary medicine once she moved to Pennsylvania in 2021 where she was lucky enough to find Smithfield Animal Hospital. Sierra has a passion for rehabilitating prenatal puppies and kittens, feral cats, cleft palate puppies and kittens, and even some wildlife including snakes, lizards, raccoons, birds and turtles. She is currently enrolled in Penn Foster’s Veterinary Technician program to get her certification. There isn’t an animal that she will say no to caring for. Sierra has 3 loveable bully breed dogs who help her rehabilitate all of the newborn puppies and kittens that come her way and help socialize them and care for them. In Sierra’s spare time, she likes to enjoy peaceful walks in the woods with her dogs during the fall/winter seasons and spends time at the beach during the spring/summer seasons. Sierra’s passion and dedication for animal care has helped countless animals achieve the spoiled lives that they deserve, including her “foster fail” cleft palate dog Bodhi who is the face of her work.
