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!

Office Manager

Hello! My name is Kaela. I am new to the veterinary field. However, I do have over 5 years of Human Resources experience while on Active Duty in the United States Army, along with over 9 years of Customer Service experience. I recently joined the staff of Sunrise Veterinary clinic and have been so grateful to be a part of this wonderful team!

I have always had so much love for animals, and I love learning more about them every day. I have two dogs named WiggleButt and Loki.

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

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

I am so excited to meet you and your furry family members!

Brooklon

Licensed Veterinary Technician

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!
