My name is Katherine, and I'm a Vet Assistant here at Sully Animal Hospital.  This is my first job at an animal hospital because I previously worked at chick-fil-a for four years. I am studying at Nova to become a licensed veterinary technician. Some hobbies I enjoy doing is crafting, reading, and occasionally drawing anime. I have one cat, Fluffy, who is a multi-colored furr ball of craziness and fun that's been with me for over 8 years. She's a one of a kind kitty. 


Emma - Veterinary Assistant

Emma is one of our wonderful veterinary assistants! As a Child, she watched Animal Planet constantly and knew a career in animal healthcare was in her future. She received her undergraduate degree in biochemistry from Virginia Tech in the Spring of 2018 and she’s been with us ever since. On her days off, she loves to find pinterest projects, acquire new hobbies, bake all kinds of food for her loved ones, and hang with her favorite furry pal, Murphy. Emma adopted Murphy from A Forever Home Rescue Foundation during the summer of 2019 and they’ve been best friends ever since.

Dr. Dowling - Traveling Ultrasonographer with MOVES

Dr. Dowling is an East Coast native but relocated to the Midwest as a child. She knew from a young age that she wanted to be a veterinarian but specifically fell in love with internal medicine while obtaining her veterinary degree from the University of Illinois Champaign Urbana in 2011. In 2012, she completed a rotating small animal internship at the University of Minnesota. She then went on to complete a three-year residency in small animal internal medicine at the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. After becoming board-certified (and with her parents living in Annapolis, MD), Dr. Dowling returned to the East Coast. She practiced in Lancaster, PA until 2020, then moved to the Northern Virginia/DC Metro area where she continued practicing in Rockville, MD prior to joining MOVES in early 2021.

Dr. Dowling is excited to offer high-quality and convenient internal medicine services to family veterinarians, owners, and patients in the NoVA area. She enjoys implementing a team approach with owners and family veterinarians to ensure seamless care for her patients. 

In her free time, Sarah enjoys spending time outdoors with her boyfriend, cooking, kayaking, and making pottery. She has 2 dogs (Dexter and Corbin), her cat (Delilah), and a very opinionated parrot (Sammy). Sarah was recently adopted by an amazing rabbit. (Bun Bun)
