Hello, my name is Sara Young. I am a proud mom of three beautiful girls and engaged to be married to a wonderful man. I have been in the veterinary field for about 4 years. I started out as a kennel assistant and worked my way up to veterinary technician. I enjoy nursing our patients back to health, assisting with surgeries, and of course snuggling. I really take pride in the care I provide to our furry friends. My family has 3 dogs; Bella, Bullet, and Raider, who we adopted from All 4 Paws. Raider is a 2-year-old boy with special needs, he truly completes our family. We also have 2 red ear sliders named Phoebe and Lily.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to be part of the team here at All 4 Paws.
Hello, I am Kaylenn Burgess. I have been a member of the All 4 Paws team for almost 3 years now. I started at All 4 Paws with no veterinary experience and worked my way up to a veterinary technician. I learned so much from working here and continue to learn every day. I take pride in the work I do and enjoy helping all the pets that come in. I have a handsome Pitbull mix named Matai, which means “High Chief” in Samoan, but he is the biggest baby you’ll meet. My gigantic family is the most important thing to me and that includes all of their little fur babies as well. I am thankful to have been given the opportunity to be apart of this team and look forward to caring for more patients and clients to come.
Hello, my name is Devanne. I have been a veterinary assistant at All 4 Paws for a little over a year and a half. In the spring of 2020, I earned by B.S in Animal Science from the University of California, Davis. Ever since I was young, I have had a passion for helping animals and I enjoy caring for every patient that comes through our doors. The wealth of knowledge that I have gained from working at this clinic and with Dr. B has allowed me not only to improve the care that I can give each pet but has also enabled me to be accepted into the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. I will be fulfilling my lifelong dream when I begin attending in the fall to further my love and knowledge of the veterinary field. I currently have two dogs, Chet and Murphy, and a cat, Phin, who I adopted after I found her as a kitten roaming around my backyard during my college days.
Hello, my name is Tamara. I graduated from Carrington College in Sacramento and earned my associate’s degree of science in veterinary technology in 2019.

Before I became a veterinary assistant, I was a hairstylist for 7 years but my love and passion have always been animals and making the career change has been the best decision of my life.
