Meet Dr. Sandra Lester

Dr. Sandra Lester DVM

We're very pleased to have her join our practice here at The Santa Rosa Veterinary Hospital! 

Dr. Lester always knew she was going to be an animal doctor and was fortunate to have grown up with a diverse population of pets from dogs and cats to hermit crabs, fish, and birds- most of which her parents knew about...

Raised in California’s Central Valley, she spent her formative years' camping, hiking, and exploring the mountains, lakes, beaches, and streams of Northern California. Dr. Lester received her bachelor’s degree in animal science from the University of California, Davis. Her final year at UCD, she lived on-site at the Hopkins Avian Research Facility studying the health and behavior of chickens where she developed a lifelong passion for poultry.

 

Always ready for a new adventure, Sandra moved to Saint Paul, Minnesota to pursue her Doctorate at the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine.  After 10 years in Minnesota, Dr. Lester decided to hang up her snowshoes and move back to the place she loves the most, California’s Northern Coast.

Here she could use her experience to provide its residents with knowledgeable and compassionate veterinary medical care. Sandra resides with her ongoing project dog Ellie, a small flock of chickens, and horse Paris. Outside of the clinic, you may find her horseback riding through one of our many local vineyards, growing award-winning peppers for her own label of hot sauce or trying out the latest Cooks Illustrated recipe.

We're sure Dr. Lester will be offering you the same care and compassion you've come to know from all of us at Santa Rosa Veterinary Hospital!
