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 not only my pet patients but
their human families as well.

For as long as I can remember, I always knew that I wanted to become a
veterinarian. 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. Afterall, 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 including dogs, cats,
a horse, llama, alpacas, goats, chickens, and ducks. I look forward to meeting
you and your four-legged family members and promise to give them the most
compassionate, individualized, and quality care!

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.

My name is Kaela and I am still fairly new to working in the veterinary field. I do however have over 5 years of Human Resources experience while Active Duty in the United States Army and 1 year while in the Army Reserves, along with over 9 years of Customer Service experience.

I currently hold two Associate’s degrees from Columbia Basin College, one in General Studies and one in Business, and am currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, hiking, reading, painting, and playing video games.

Tobey

Customer Service Representative

My name is Tobey, and I am your customer service representative. I have worked in customer service for over 25 years, and I have a strong passion to interact and connect with people and their pets.

After growing up in the Tri-City area, I decided to stay and raise my own family here. When I was younger, I was involved in 4-H and showed pigs, lambs, and a cat (yes, a cat, and he won grand champion!).

When I am not working, I enjoy time outside with my pups, either gardening or just hanging out. My family and I love our time on the water, either fishing, tubing, or just coasting slowly down the river.

In my time at Sunrise, I have met some amazing people along with their fur babies. It’s been such a rewarding experience and I look forward to meeting many more!

Hi, my name is Brooklon, and I am a Licensed Veterinary Technician. I went to the Veterinary Technology program at Yakima Valley College and graduated in 2022. I have lived on a dairy my whole life with lots of different animals, and I always enjoyed working with them. I had many pets growing up and showed dairy heifers and beef steers through 4-H and FFA for years. I knew I wanted a job working with animals that would be fun and interesting each day. Right now, I have a yellow labrador retriever named Sadie, and my fiance has a golden retriever named Koda. I look forward to meeting you all and helping with all of your pets here at Sunrise Veterinary Clinic!
