Program Director & Veterinary Nurse
Sarah graduated from a private veterinary nurse college in Australia in 2012. She was one of the top 10% in her class. She spent a year working in Australia and then moved into shelter medicine after an opportunity in Thailand presented itself.
After almost two years working in shelter medicine in Asia, Sarah founded Pawesome, to be able to provide veterinary care to animals across Asia through strategically placed veterinary programs. She hopes that through these programs she can provide veterinary care to the animals not only in Asia, but eventually, around the globe.
Sarah also believes it is super important to educate tourists on ways to support cruelty free and ethical businesses when traveling overseas. Often tourists unknowingly participate in animal exploitation and cruelty by supporting a business that only cares about making money, and not the welfare of the animals under their care.
Sarah considers herself an advocate for animal welfare, a prominent member of the vegan community and a world traveler. She has more than 15 years and 40 countries tucked under her belt. Ask her for advice on “the best of” for almost any country and she’ll give you the answer of an experienced traveler!
