Dr. Sarah Fischer

Dr. Fischer grew up in Maryland and moved to Florida to attend Eckerd College—a small private college where she received a BS in Biology. She ended up staying in Florida for a few years, working as a veterinary technician while awaiting entrance to veterinary school. She graduated from the University of Florida, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. While in vet school, Dr. Fischer was able to perform research involving feral cats and vaccinations, working closely with the largest feral cat spay/neuter operation in the country, and has had that research published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association. She loves working with all cats and dogs, but she has a special spot in her heart for those grumpy cats who really hate coming to see her! She adds a bit of ‘southern charm’ to all she does.


Dr. Emily Kodis

Emily Kodis grew up in a small town in southern Maine and moved to Connecticut in 2007 to attend Wesleyan University, where she earned a B.A. in Neuroscience and Biology. After graduation she attended Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine in Grafton, Massachusetts. While in veterinary school, Emily gained experience working as a technician at a mixed animal clinic in Connecticut as well as expanding her surgical experiences through shelter medicine electives. She is excited to transition to a position as an associate veterinarian and is looking forward to working with the East Brook team! Outside of vet med, she enjoys music, the outdoors, and relaxing at home with her two tuxedo cats, Finn and Jake.
