Meet the Team at East Sacramento Veterinary Center
Dr. Cameron Collins
Dr. Cameron Collins grew up in the Bay Area and attended UC Davis for both his undergraduate degree and his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. He graduated from the School of Veterinary Medicine with Honors in 2009. His focus was on small animal medicine with special interests in emergency medicine, oncology, and surgery. During his studies, he collaborated on cancer research projects, was published in two peer-reviewed articles, and received awards for achievements in small animal surgery. After graduation, he completed an internship at Loomis Basin Veterinary Clinic where he gained additional education and experience in all of these fields. He was offered a full-time position there working in emergency medicine and general practice. In late 2012, he accepted a position at South Davis Veterinary Center and was voted #1 Veterinarian in Yolo County 4 years in a row. He is taking his experience and his dedication to enhancing the human-animal bond to East Sacramento, where he has resided since 2014. Dr. Collins and his wife, Marisa, love exploring the outdoors, hiking, skiing, and traveling the world. They just recently welcomed their twin babies, Andersen and Crosby, to join their fur-babies Colby, Zita Marie, and Stella Rae.
Dr. Carlye Rosen
For Dr. Carlye Rosen, becoming a veterinarian was never a matter of if, but when. And though California wasn’t her childhood home, she quickly realized it was her new one once she moved here. After graduating from UCLA with Departmental Honors, she made her way to UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine to complete the adventure of becoming the vet she’d always known she would be. While studying, Dr. Rosen expanded her skill set by working part time at the teaching hospital, summering as a veterinary technician in her home state of Connecticut, and taking leading roles in the Surgery Club as well as biannual outreach clinics in Nicaragua. Though she was passionate about Emergency Medicine and Surgery, her drive to foster strong relationships with animals and their parents turned her head away from specialization and towards general practice. The dedication Dr. Collins and his team have to providing personalized, quality medicine resonated with her immediately, and Dr. Rosen was honored to become a part of the family at East Sacramento Veterinary Center. In her free time Dr Rosen also loves skiing, hiking, adventuring locally and globally, scuba diving, just talking about food, and snuggling with kittens and puppies. Ask her about her own dog, Boone, with caution as she won’t hesitate to show you an entire photo album of the little charmer.
Dr. Machal Scharbrough
As a child, you could always find Dr. Machal Scharbrough at her grandma’s farm playing with the dogs, bathing the horses, and trying to find the farm cats. Dr. Scharbrough’s true passion for Veterinary Medicine started when she adopted her first dog while her husband was deployed for the military. With her hands-on experience managing a slough of complicated medical conditions, she began to fully understand how special, profound, and impactful the relationship between pets and their humans could be. This led her to begin her pursuit in Veterinary Medicine, where she aims to help animals live long, happy, and healthy lives.
After graduating from the University of San Diego, Dr. Scharbrough attended UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine where she graduated with Honors. During veterinary school, she was president of the emergency medicine club, helped organize a veterinary clinic for pets of the homeless, and performed research in the field of Ophthalmology. Dr. Scharbrough has a passion for Internal Medicine, Ophthalmology, and managing tough rare medical cases. She was highly encouraged by her professors to pursue a specialty residency but found herself drawn to general practice for one main reason: forming strong long-term relationships with pet guardians and getting to know the patients from birth to old age. She is a great asset to the team at East Sacramento Veterinary Center, and we are so lucky to have her join us.
During her spare time, Dr. Scharbrough loves hiking, floating or boating on the river, wine tasting, and spending time with her husband and three dogs (a German Shepherd, a Belgian Malinois, and a Cockapoo). She has a special place in her heart for shepherds but loves all species and breeds, and welcomes the opportunity to meet your furry loved one.
