Sara went to the University of Idaho where she was a member and managed the university's intercollegiate polo team. In 2016 she graduated from with her B.S. in Animal Science and moved to Kentucky where she became a KEMI Intern at Lane's End Oak Tree during the Thoroughbred breeding season. There she gained invaluable knowledge and handling skills of mares, foals, yearlings, and teaser stallions. After completing the internship, she accepted a job as head show groom for Will Coleman, an 5*, Olympic, and World Games competitor. She dove into the depths of top tier of show grooming, where she went to some of the top events in the country including, but not limited to, the Rolex Three Day Event, Bromont International Three Day Event, and the 2018 World Equestrian Games in Tryon, NC. While working for Will Coleman she first met Dr. Peters at the US team evaluations and grew to respect him as one of the top Sports Medicine Veterinarians in the field. At the end of 2019, Sara decided to pursue graduate school at Middle Tennessee State University. While there she studied advanced equine nutrition, physiology, and event management. Her thesis entitled "The Use and Perceptions of Alternative Therapies in the Horse Industry" focused on how horse owners used massage, acupuncture, PEMF, and chiropractic manipulations, and how efficacious they perceived them to be. She graduated with her M.S. in Horse Science Industry Management, and moved back to Lexington, Kentucky, where she reconnected with Dr. Peters and became a technician for his and Dr. Bidwell's practice. Sara enjoys gallivanting around with her two dogs and cat, enjoying all that Kentucky, Michigan, and Southern California have to offer!
