Sara Mark, DVM
Dr. Mark earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1983 from the Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine, where she received the American Animal Hospital Association Outstanding Senior Student Award for Excellence in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery. She earned her Bachelor of Science in 1977, with a dual major in Life Science & Physical Science and a minor in Chemistry. She is a member of Alpha Delta Pi social sorority.
Since moving to Denver after graduation, Dr. Mark's passion for Animal Assisted Activities & Therapy found a home at The Children's Hospital, where she developed the protocol for the internationally-renowned Prescription Pet Program. Dr. Sara consults with many organizations across the country regarding their pet therapy programs, and has been named Volunteer of the Year for The Children's Hospital. She also received the American Hospital Association's Hospital Award for Volunteer Excellence on behalf of The Children's Hospital.
You can read her story "Darlene" in the original volume of Chicken Soup for the Pet Lovers' Soul. It details the special work she and her once-in-a-lifetime-dog, Pokey, did at The Children's Hospital.
Dr. Sara shares life with her husband Stu, two dogs (Stella, a Jack Russell Terrier, and Stanley, an Australian Terrier) and their cat (Puzzles) in Centennial.
Lisa Boals, DVM
A native of Arkansas, Dr. Boals received her Bachelor of Science in Microbiology and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (2008) degrees from Mississippi State University. During veterinary college, she developed special interests in dentistry, cardiology, and feline medicine, as well as representing her class for the American Animal Hospital Association.
Being from a parasite-ridden area of the country, she has become dubbed "The Heartworm Queen", so if you have any questions about heartworms (or fleas and ticks), don't hesitate to ask!
Dr. Boals has adapted to the colder, drier climate of Colorado quite well - just don't ask her to drive on snowy roads. She lives in downtown Denver with her husband Paul, and enjoys fly-fishing, horseback riding, and hiking with her rescued Coonhound, Loretta.
Jennifer Adams, DVM
Dr. Jennifer grew up in the Kansas City area and received her Bachelors of Science in Biology as well as her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Kansas State University. Upon graduation, she immediately headed to Denver where she has been practicing small animal medicine since 1997. She joined Southwest Veterinary Hospital in early 2008. Her veterinary interests include dentistry and soft tissue surgery.
Dr. Jen enjoys spending time outdoors telemark skiing and running. She shares her home with her husband and young son. She recently had to say "goodbye" to her aged Golden Retriever and tabby cat. However, she now has a new furry friend - Luke the Cat - in her household!
