Student Success: Sarah Broom
Sarah Broom (’19 DVM) is a third year veterinary student interested in small animal neurology and integrative medicine. From a young age, Sarah knew she wanted to pursue a career as a veterinarian, and joining dog 4-H in second grade further sparked her interest in science and animal health. Sarah grew up in western Washington and decided to stay close to home for her undergraduate education, receiving her bachelor’s degree in biology from Washington State University Vancouver. After attending DVM@WSU and touring Pullman as an undergrad with her mom, they both knew that the supportive environment and wonderful education that WSU College of Veterinary Medicine provides was the perfect fit. Sarah enjoys being involved in school-related activities, and is the President of Canine Club, a member of the Holistic and Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine Clubs, and acts as the Class of 2019 Curriculum Committee Representative. Outside of school, Sarah enjoys spending time with her beloved Basset Hounds and attending dog shows. She is also still involved in the same 4-H club she joined seventeen years ago as a co-Leader during the summers and loves teaching kids about dog training, health, and responsible dog ownership. When she graduates, she plans to complete an internship and residency in neurology, with the goal to return to western Washington to work in a veterinary specialty hospital.
