The Next Generation of Veterinarians

We found out this week that our own Sarah Kwon has been accepted to the Washington State College of Veterinary Medicine class of 2021. Sarah has worked tirelessly towards veterinary school admission and this is a culmination of many years’ effort.

Sarah has been my assistant for several years and she and I work very closely on patients together. She is an integral part of the care we provide. From my recommendation letter to the WSU Veterinary school, “Sarah is skilled and excited about veterinary medicine. She is adept at problem solving and is interested in applying clinical data for the benefit of active cases. I am ever more committed that she is headed down the correct career path. I expect her to excel in clinical medicine. She has the interpersonal skills, compassion, competence, and drive necessary to succeed in school and practice.” Sarah will be an excellent veterinarian. The clinic and I will miss her but are so proud of her accomplishment.


Congratulations Sarah!

I have long told her that she belonged in the doctor inner circle. Time moves on quickly. She will go off to vet school in August but it won’t be that long until you may see Dr. Kwon back at Lien.
