Dr. Jen Sula was raised in Goffstown, NH. She has been a lifelong “horse person” which guided her to veterinary medicine. Dr. Sula completed her undergraduate degree at UNH in 1992 and graduated from Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in 1996.
Dr. Sula enjoys the challenges of being a mixed animal practitioner as she spends time with both equine and small animal clientele.
When not working with animals, Dr. Sula enjoys her own. She actively shows her Irish Wolfhounds, tends to her bees and laying hens, and enjoys riding her horses. Long walks in the woods of NH are a routine part of Dr. Sula’s family life.
Dr. Lesley Clark is from Lancaster, NH. She grew up showing horses in 4-H and on the hunter/jumper circuit.
