Dr. Sarpong completed her undergraduate studies in Chemical Engineering at the University of Virginia. After graduation, she worked for Merck, Inc on new drug development before returning to school to pursue a lifelong love of veterinary medicine.
Dr. Sarpong lives in Hollywood/Santa Monica (part of greater Lakewood) with her husband, Benjamin, and two daughters, Abigail and Elouise. Her dog Noah has shared their home since being adopted after being hit by a car as a puppy. He serves as a great surrogate parent to cats and dogs spending time at the Sarpong house. More recently, Isaac, a 90 lb canine rescue joined the Sarpong household after being found running around White Rock Lake with heartworms and epilepsy.
