About Sarah Smith, FNP-BC

For Sarah Smith, caring for others is second nature. In fact, she's been working in the nursing field since she was 16 years old thanks to training she received in Perry High School's Med Tech program where she earned her license as a certified phlebotomist and nurse aide. She extends her love of caring for others into all she does as she cares for children and adults to make sure all their health needs are met.

Sarah earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing from Case Western Reserve University and Master of Science Degree in Nursing from Malone University. Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner, Sarah worked as patient care coordinator and registered nurse for a 28 bed ICU step-down unit at Mercy Medical Center, which gave her a lot of experience working with patients who were very ill.

Sarah currently resides at Dover with her husband, Jeremy, and her yellow lab, Link.
