Danielle Sawyer, DVM
ACCESS – LOS ANGELES
Danielle Sawyer is currently a resident in emergency and critical care at ACCESS – Los Angeles. Her energy, determination, and adaptability help her excel in practice and in life.
Raised in an Air Force family traveling from Japan to Belgium to the US, and growing up with small animals and exotics, instilled in Danielle a deep respect and care for all living beings no matter where she was.
Upon moving back to the States in her teenage years, Danielle first embarked upon her mission to become a veterinarian, by becoming a vet assistant in a small general practice in Chelsea, MI.
As a Michigan State Spartan, Danielle completed a BS in Zoology with a concentration in Animal Behavior and Neuroscience. Electing to attend an off-shore veterinary school in the Caribbean, Danielle earned her DVM degree as a Rossie in 2011. She developed her love of emergency and critical care in an internship at Animal Specialty Group in LA, followed by two years as an overnight emergency veterinarian in Thousand Oaks, CA prior to starting at ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospitals.
From her collegiate varsity swimming years, Danielle continues to enjoy swimming and coaching in her spare time. She also has fun taking her three happy dogs to the dog park and relaxing at home with her other pets including her loving Kittitian cat and her rescued leopard gecko.
