Sarah Walker was born and raised in Houma, Louisiana, where she was a part of the ‘million dollar band from gator land’. She moved to the Twin Lakes Area in her junior year and graduated from Yellville. She and her husband, Greg, have three beautiful children and a beautiful 40-acre hobby farm where they fish, hunt, and ride horses. Sarah has worked as a waitress and in retail. Without really knowing what career path she wanted, her love of animals eventually guided her to the veterinary field. When her pug had an unfortunate run in with her horse in 2005, she frequented Dr. Sloan’s veterinary clinic for a year of treatment for her pet. Sarah had found what she wanted to do, helping pets and their owners, which she was able to do after Dr. Sloan offered her a job at his clinic. After some time out of the veterinary field, Sarah looks forward to working with Dr. Troutman and doing what she loves again!
