Position: Kennel Technician
Current Home: W. Warwick, RI
Hire Date: August 21, 2023
Ever since Sierra can remember, she was always surrounded by dogs growing up. Houseguests often asked if they were at a “zoo” with the multitude of animals in the family home.
It was very early on in life that Sierra realized her future would be to follow her passion and find a career path she’d enjoy so that’s just what she did.
After graduating High School, Sierra enrolled in a Veterinary Assistant program at CCRI in Warwick, which included an internship at a local vet clinic. During this internship, Sierra became more comfortable and experienced with low-stress handling and restraint techniques.
By 2018 Sierra became a Certified Veterinary Assistant.
Sierra also spent time working in Pet Retail where she honed her skills in proper safe handling as well as earning her Nail Trim Certification.
In her free time, she enjoys caring for her reptiles, going for nature walks, and spending time with family and friends.
