Education: South Vermillion High School
Pets: Blu, Duesie, Freddie, Frankie

I have been a CNA for over 20 years. I love animals sometimes more than people. The oldest of five, I have 4 younger sisters. There have been many animals in my life: turtles, dogs, cats, chickens, goats, horses, pigs, and even flying squirrels. I have about 3 years now of experience with animals in a professional capacity. A favorite memory and proud moment in my life is that I built a hot rod from the ground up with my father. I’m glad to be part of the BVH team.

I am a 2012 graduate of the International Business College Vet Tech Institute in Indianapolis. In 2014, I came to Brown Veterinary Hospital to work as a veterinary technician and Inventory manager.

When I’m not working, my time is spent with my fiancé, Justin, and our boys. We also have 3 dogs that keep us on our toes even more!

Registered Veterinary Technician

Education: Bel-Rea Institute of Veterinary Technology
Hometown: Terre Haute, IN
Pets: Sir Flash McBaron (Boxer) Rollo (Pit bull mix)

I am one of the Registered Veterinary Technicians here at Brown Veterinary Hospital. I was pre-veterinary at Indiana State University for 3 years before making the decision to change degrees and enroll at Bel-Rea Institute of Veterinary Technology in Denver, CO. After graduating in 2008, I completed an internship at the Indianapolis Zoo Veterinary Hospital. My husband, Travis, moved with me to Colorado to pursue my dream of veterinary medicine; he is a wonderful husband and father. Our 2 beautiful children, Reagan and Avery, keep us on our toes on a daily basis. Rollo, a rescue Pit bull mix, joined the family in 2015; he is such a sweet handsome goofball and became best friends with the kids. Flash is our lovable Boxer who loves playing tag with the kids. He has the best butt wiggles.

When I’m not at the hospital, I enjoy being a mother and walking trails. I grew up with all kinds of animals and going into veterinary medicine was a goal I set for myself. I enjoy our clients and the stories they share with us about their pets. I love the constant advances happening in veterinary medicine; these advances allow me to not only keep patient care a number one priority, but also make me excel as an RVT!

Emily B.

Registered Veterinary Technician

Education: Harrison College
Hometown: Pittsboro, IN
Pets: Nimbus

Hi, I’m Emily! I’ve been a Registered Veterinary Technician for 10 years. I graduated from Harrison College in 2011, and I’ve had pets of all different kinds. I grew up in the small town of Pittsboro, IN, (home of NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon and Olympic gymnast Bridget Sloan) about 25 miles west of Indy. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do after graduating from Tri-West High School until I found my calling in veterinary medicine. Now I’m always learning something new, and I get to help animals and their people!

I’m currently a cat mom to an orange tabby (my favorite) named Nimbus. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, playing video games, reading novels, and singing. I also volunteer at a local horse sanctuary whenever I can. My passions in veterinary medicine include pain management, behavioral health, and exotic animal medicine.


Veterinary Assistant

Hometown: Greencastle, IN
Pets: Rudy and Millie

Hi, I’m Heather! I’m new on the block and have recently started my career here in 2023. My first wish as a child was to have a career working with animals. I have an associate of applied science in agriculture, but realized the animal and veterinary side was my calling after meeting my loving Devon Rex companion, Rudy. Rudy also has a Devon Rex sister named Millie, so our household definitely has our hands full. My cats are my main priority and life outside of work; they are truly my family and I love them dearly. I have worked at a couple other clinics, but I feel working for Brown Veterinary Hospital was what my heart has been looking for. Working with animals brings me joy and doesn’t quite feel like work to me. Going to work every day and helping the animals people love puts a smile on my face. I am currently enrolled in a veterinary technician program with Penn Foster and plan to become an RVT. My passion is helping others find the best care for their companions so they can lead happy and healthy lives. My goal is to learn and grow through working for Brown Veterinary Hospital and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for me.

Sarah Y.


Hometown: Chicago, IL
Pets: Gunnar, Kimber, Cabela, Kristopher, Mittens, Gracie, Gordy, Peanut, JoJo, and Sissy

Hello! I’ve been with the Brown family since 2019. I moved to the area from the suburbs of Chicago, where I was raised and lived with my husband. While we have no human children yet, we do have a very full house! We currently have 3 large dogs (Gunnar, Kimber, and Cabela) and 7 cats (Kristopher, Mittens, Gracie, Gordy, Peanut, JoJo, and Sissy) of our own. I am also an avid cat rescuer, so we always have fosters in our home. We are never empty nesting! I especially enjoy rescuing kittens and taking on medical cases, like the injured.

Growing up I had one childhood cat, Dumpling, but I always found ways to be involved with animals. I have a huge heart when it comes to animals so it’s a blessing to get to do this for my career, and the tools it provides me to do my rescue work is priceless. I live for the motto “Saving one animal won’t change the world, but it will change the world for that one animal.” Outside of living and breathing for animals, I enjoy hiking with my husband and our dogs! I also love to read and travel. My favorite places are Islamorada and Lake Tahoe, but I can’t wait to visit Ireland!

Hometown: North Terre Haute
Education: ISU – BA in Business Marketing Pets – Winnie, Oliver

I’ve worked with animals over 6 years, whether it is medically or even with rescues. If my actual job at the time isn’t taking care of animals, I’m still pet sitting for others in the community. I have fostered many animals, several of which ended up as foster fails that found their way permanently into my home and heart. Seniors animals are my all-time favorites. No matter where my feet lead me, I always end up back working with animals. They are my true passion.
