Program Director & Veterinary Nurse
Sarah began her veterinary nursing career in 2012 after graduating among the top 10 percent in her class from a private college in Australia. Post graduation, Sarah spent a year working in private practice on Australia’s west coast, but when an opportunity to move to Thailand presented itself she relocated to pursue her passion in shelter medicine. Sarah also holds a keen interest in Emergency and Critical Care and has worked in this field both in Australia and the USA.
In 2016 Sarah founded Pawesome, to be able to provide veterinary care to animals across South East Asia through strategically placed veterinary programs. She hopes that through these programs she can provide veterinary care to 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!
