Sharon Molton D.V.M.

Practice Owner

I love being able to provide compassionate, individualized care to my patients. I feel that I am making a difference in the lives of my pet patients and their human families as well.

I always knew that I wanted to become a veterinarian for as long as I can remember. I am a Tri-Cities native and spent my childhood growing up with cats, dogs, ducks, a variety of pocket pets, and horses. I was heavily involved in 4-H and Pony Club and started working at a local mixed animal veterinary clinic as soon as I was able to drive.

Upon graduation from veterinary school, I decided to spread my wings and spent the first 11 years of my career practicing small animal medicine in Western Washington. I grew weary of the traffic and gray skies, and in 2011 moved back home. After all, my family has deep roots in this community and they have lived here for over 40 years!

I love all animals and have quite a menagerie of my own! Blaze, a miniature Australian Shepherd, Fury, a long-haired cat, Smokey, a Paint horse, a cockatiel named Magoo, an Appaloosa llama named Lola, three alpacas Colada, Lee, and Olive; a Nigerian Dwarf goat named Aami, two ducks Hoover and Dyson, and last but not least five chickens Daisy, Gaga, Buttercup, Stripe, and Dot.

I look forward to meeting you and your four-legged family members and promise to give them the most compassionate, individualized, and quality care!

Marni Hamack D.V.M.

Associate Veterinarian

I grew up in Anchorage, Alaska, and have loved animals for as long as I can remember. At 12 years old, I was certain that I wanted to be a veterinarian and started volunteering at the local vet hospital in Chugiak, AK. I have worked in the veterinary industry ever since.

I moved to “the lower 48” to pursue my higher education and have lived in Eastern Washington for 20 years now. I graduated from the Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010. I have 12 years of experience in general practice and emergency medicine.

I currently reside in Prosser, with an assortment of animals that includes cats, dogs, horses, and cattle. I enjoy riding horses, skiing, and hiking with my dogs outside of work. My animals are essential family members, and I will treat yours as I would my own.

I look forward to helping keep your animals healthy and happy through kind, high-quality medical care.

I was born and raised in the Tri-Cities, WA area, so I am fortunate to have a wonderful support system here with my family & friends as well.

Kennel Assistant

Hi! My name is Sydney, and I am a Kennel Assistant here at Sunrise Vet Clinic. Ever since I was little I have felt a strong connection towards animals. I am one day hoping to become a Veterinarian myself and have my own clinic.

I am currently a junior at Richland high school and a running start student at Washington State University. I have 3 fur babies-Ruby, a Golden Retriever, Tucker, a Norwegian Elkhound, and Molly, a Yellow Lab. I am a competitive swimmer, so my free time is mainly taken with swimming or lifting. When I find myself with free time, I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends. I love being active. In the summer, I am usually somewhere near the water, and I’ll be on the slopes snowboarding in the winter!
