Your Springs Family Veterinary Team


Sara Ryan, Veterinarian  


Dr. Ryan grew up in Charlton, New York where she was fortunate to be surrounded by nature, wildlife and her many family pets. These early experiences instilled deep love and compassion for the welfare of animals, qualities that led her naturally into the field of veterinary medicine. Her education includes a Bachelor of Science in Molecular Genetics from the University of Rochester and a veterinary degree from the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Ryan practiced in central New Jersey before moving back ‘home’ in 2007, gaining extensive experience in both veterinary primary care and emergency. Her warm and personal way of relating to both clients and patients is foundational in the establishment of Springs Family Veterinary Hospital. Dr. Ryan earned her Fear Free certification in 2018 and is currently working toward Fear Free practice certification. She shares her happy home in Wilton with her husband, Dave, three daughters, Caroline, Nora, and Evelyn, and a spunky black Labrador puppy named Otis.

She has a background as a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT), an Associates degree in Human Services, and a four-year diploma in Advanced Canine Behavioral Sciences. Chelsea takes pride in all aspects of her job, but especially enjoys helping clients feel welcome and ensuring the comfort of our patients.

She has a special place in her heart for older, unwanted rescue animals and is a volunteer for Green Mountain Pug Rescue. Chelsea is a Fear Free Certified Professional. 



Julie Booth, Licensed Veterinary Technician


Julie knew from a young age that she was meant to work in the veterinary field. Her dreams came true when she graduated from SUNY Delhi in 1992 with an Associates in Veterinary Technology, and she now has over 27 years of invaluable experience working with companion animals. Julie's special interests include hematology, anesthesiology, and general veterinary nursing. She believes there is nothing more rewarding than helping a sick or injured pet feel better! Julie is a mom to four lucky rescues: a dog named Foxy and three cats: Gilbert, Sullivan, and Beans. She is a huge animal advocate and a certified Fear Free Professional. 



Suzie Civitello, Licensed Veterinary Technician


Suzie has long had a passion for helping animals when they are need, and if her patients could talk they'd rave about her ability to provide them with loving TLC! Suzie started in the veterinary field in 2005 and worked in a primary care setting for two years before moving onto emergency care, where she gained nine years of critical care experience. For Suzie, the best part of her job is assisting in surgery and radiology, where she is committed to the safety and comfort of her patients. Suzie graduated from SUNY Canton in 2005 with an Associates degree in Veterinary Technology and is a certified Fear Free professional. She is the best friend of a happy-go-lucky Hound mix named Khaleesi.



Breanna Miller, Veterinary Assistant


Breanna joined the Springs Family Vet team in August of 2020, after working in doggie daycare and veterinary settings, as well as a behavior intern, for the two years prior. Breanna's calm demeanor, behavior knowledge, and advanced handling skills are a tremendous asset to our patients and our hospital's Fear Free mission. She has a Bachelor of Science degree and plans to continue her education, as well as expand her knowledge of veterinary medicine. Breanna enjoys building bonds with her patients and working with a team to make each patient's visit the very best it can be. When not working she's likely out hiking in the great outdoors with her adorable mini-dachshund, Oliver!
