Sarah Gerber wears many hats at Plum Spring Clinic, serving as the Patient Care Coordinator, Phlebotomist, and Medical Assistant. Sarah brings over a decade of prior medical experience to Plum Spring Clinic, albeit from the unique perspective of veterinary medicine.
As a veterinary technician, Sarah worked with a variety of animals, including dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, small mammals, and farm animals. While she feels fortunate for the opportunity to work within many different veterinary medicine niches, her favorite aspect of the field was holistic methodologies, including acupuncture, chiropractics, nutraceutical supplementation, and homeopathy. Combining this prior holistic knowledge with animals to her work at Plum Spring Clinic has provided Sarah with special insights into patient care as a whole- body, mind, and soul.
As Plum Spring Clinic’s phlebotomist, Sarah collects blood samples for submittal to the laboratory for testing. When not manning the laboratory side of Plum Spring Clinic, you’ll find her aiding the nurses, seeing to administrative tasks, and providing patient program navigation.
Sarah holds an associate’s degree in veterinary science, bachelor’s degree in biology, and is also nationally certified in phlebotomy. She also still maintains her veterinary technician license in the state of North Carolina. In her free time, Sarah enjoys riding her horse and caring for her menagerie of pets at home.
I am continually delighted to help Plum Spring Clinic patients navigate through their programs, ensuring a fulfilling journey that supports sustained, healthy outcomes. To do so, I whole-heartedly find the words of Malcolm X to hold truth in that “when ‘I’ is replaced with “we,” even “illness” becomes “wellness.”
