Dr. Sarah Mihalek grew up on the peninsula. A majority of her childhood was spent outdoors admiring wildlife, in aquariums staring at fish for hours on end, or making her parents take laps around the zoo. She has traveled the world trying to fulfill her curiosity. She’s had to “MacGyver” her way through diagnosing and treating diseases in third world countries where resources were scarce, and at the other end of the spectrum, she has practiced where access to the greatest resources were at her disposal. She studied at St. George’s University where she earned a master’s degree in Wildlife conservation and medicine and completed her fourth year at Cornell University. She shares her home with 2 crazy French Bulldog rescues, Newt and Toad, her turtle Brian, and her Husband. .
