I am originally from Corning, NY, just south of snowy Buffalo, Go BILLS. I now live in Bonita Springs with my husband, a retired police officer, and our son, a college student, currently attending FGCU. We also have two fur kids: Brodie and Miss Foo. We moved to sunny Florida in July 2020 for the location, diversity, and weather. Prior to moving south, I attended both Corning Community College and Alfred State College in upstate NY. I graduated with a business administration degree. My love for animals drove me to the veterinary field, and I have worked in this field for over 25 years before starting at AHOB. I am very proud to be a team member here at The Animal Hospital Of Bonita. We are a great family practice providing excellent veterinary care for our patients.

I also have 2 wonderful orange tabby cats-- Hercules and Kaddy and our newest member is Herbie the hedgehog. I love to do arts and crafts, and go on Pinterest to gather ideas. I love camping and off roading (trail riding) in our FJ cruiser. I love the beach.
Certified Vet Tech
Sally Johnston, CVT
I joined our staff in February 2016 after my husband, 2 cats (Monkey and Inky) and I moved to Florida in April 2015. I retired from an animal hospital in Ohio after 41 years in the field, and am a registered veterinary technician. After moving to Florida, my family got a Labrador puppy named Royal. I wanted to continue working part time because veterinary medicine is part of my life and passion.

I was born and raised in Naples, FL and graduated from Southern Technical College as a Certified Veterinary Assistant in 2021. I interned at AHOB and immediately felt like a part of the family! From an early age I knew I wanted to work with animals and now I get to live that dream every time I step into the clinic. When I'm not working, I enjoy baking and gaming on my PC. My fiance and I have a dog named Ripley and a fish named Mr. Grumpy II.
