Our Staff Sarah, Licensed Veterinary Technician
Sarah, a native of Northern Virginia, is a graduate of NVCC's 2010 veterinary technician program. She has worked in the veterinary field for more than 15 years. Her love for dentistry brought her to Animal Dental Clinic in May 2010, where she has excelled in taking digital dental x-rays and assisting with oral surgery. In June Sarah passed her Academy of Veterinary Dental Technicians exam to become the second board certified veterinary dental technician in the state of Virginia and one of fewer than 90 in the world. She resides in Northern Virginia with her boyfriend and cat named Kepler, and enjoys hiking, backpacking, and baking in her spare time. Cristal
Cristal, our receptionist, is attending school to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician and hopes to utilize her experience at ADC in achieving that goal. Always an avid animal lover, she studied zoology before working in the infant section of a local zoo. She studied Rufus Naped Tamarins for two years while living in Panama with her husband, a soldier. For more than 30 years Cristal has worked with numerous horse breeds, but especially enjoys Miniature Horses. She currently owns five that she hopes to show in breed registry shows. She has been competing in Miniature Horse shows since 1988 and has spoken on the topic many times. She is also a carded judge for the World Class Miniature Horse Registry, and helps new owners by leading training seminars and one-on-one training sessions.
Cristal, her husband, and two children are originally from NY but have moved around the country during his military career. In addition to her horses – Danny, Brittany, Sneakers, Sarge, and Goldie – she shares her home with her dogs, Ella and Chewy.
