Next Gen – Millennials at work

The newest addition to the staff at Island Animal Clinic is someone who has grown up on the island. Sarah Esordi, their newest Veterinary Assistant, graduated from Grosse Ile High School in 2013. Esordi appreciates working with familiar faces. “I’ve been on the island all my life, so a lot of the clients that come in I already know, and now I’m getting to know their animals,” she explains.

Esordi graduated from Ohio State University in May of 2017, earning her Bachelor of Arts in Zoology. Now, she is passionately working with the doctors at Island Animal Clinic and is responsible for many important duties. Esordi elaborates, “I take [patient] histories, help the doctors hold the animals, and run bloodwork and various tests.”

The atmosphere at Island Animal Clinic has been one of the best parts of the job. “[What I like about Island Animal Clinic is] It’s so small. We know each animal, so we’re really focused on the animals and the people,” Esordi remarks.

Island Animal Clinic is a full service veterinary facility servicing canine, feline, and equine patients located at 8117 Macomb St., Grosse Ile. For more information, call 734-671-3090 or email
