Dr. Debbie Sharp was born and raised in Santa Barbara, California. She decided to become a veterinarian when she was 12 years old and her horse required surgery. Her veterinarian let her be the assistant during surgery and from that day on she was hooked. She graduated from Cal Poly with a BS in Animal Science in 1992 and Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1996.
Her family has lived in Brentwood and she has worked at the Brentwood Veterinary Hospital for 16 years. Her husband, Brian, sells real estate and owns Sharp Realty. They have four children - Austin 13, Megan 10 and her twins, Brandon and Brianna are 7 years old. She and her family enjoy riding horses, roping, running barrels, swimming, water skiing, camping, and working out their ten-acre ranch. She can't imagine life without being a veterinarian and a mom; they are two of the best jobs in the world.
