Hello, my name is Amy Abel. I was born in Hayward, California were my grandfather was a veterinarian who owned his own hospital. Shortly after I turned 4 years old we moved to Calavaras County on five acres. We brought our horse Country Road, two dogs, two cats and a tank full of fish. Over the years we acquired many animals from chickens to rats. I would wake up before school to feed all the animals and make sure they had fresh water and clean bedding. I’ve always had a love for animals, they have always been part of my life. I have always known I wanted to work with animals.

Now I am married to my wonderful husband James and have two beautiful children, Steven and Summer. We also have two dogs, a pitbull mix Bella, and a shepherd mix Linus, two cats that were bottle fed, Larry and Lilly and a bearded dragon named Dolly.

I have worked at many veterinary hospitals but I have always wanted to work at Sierra Veterinary Clinic. After tech school and some experience at the emergency clinic I thought I would apply. This was the best phone call ever. I’ve been at Sierra Veterinary Clinic for just over a year. I love coming to work every day, not only am I living my dream of working with and helping animals but also with great doctors and great staff as well. I’m looking forward to growing with Sierra Veterinary Clinic.
