Being a Wisconsin native I have lived in Alaska, Washington State, Louisiana and Michigan before settling in Colorado in 1994. As a young girl I rescued a cat and her kittens that were living in a hollowed out tree. That’s when I decided to dedicate my life to helping animals. I received my Bachelor of Science in Wildlife Biology in 1983 from Washington State University. I have been managing veterinary hospitals since 2000 and joined Animal Hospital of Falcon in 2014. My goal is to provide you with the best medicine for your companions as well as excellent client service. I have volunteered with a local cat rescue and that is how I acquired special needs cats who didn’t have a home to go to. My Heeler mix loves his cat family. I love gardening, camping, hiking and traveling. I have a daughter that is a Neurology Specialty Licensed Veterinary Technician in Seattle and my son is an El Paso County Sheriff Deputy.

Jason, Client Service Coordinator
I was born and raised in beautiful upstate New York. I spent my childhood working on my grandparent’s dairy farm which was my introduction to the world of living and working with domesticated animals. There wasn’t a time that I was ever without a dog or cat in my home. With great interest and motivation to care for animals I studied animal science at Morrisville State University in 2003. I transferred to Cornell University in 2005 to continue my studies in animal science. While attending school I worked in a small animal hospital – found my calling - and have worked in a veterinary medicine setting ever since. I relocated to Colorado Springs to take advantage of the beautiful outdoor activities Colorado has to offer. In 2016 I found a great opportunity working with the wonderful staff at Animal Hospital of Falcon after dabbling in construction work. In my spare time I like to hike and go camping with my girlfriend and our Bull Terrier mix, Sydney or just hang out in our backyard with our 3 cats Norman, Leonard and Little Cat.

I was born in Colorado but spent most of my life on the east coast. I graduated from the School of Visual arts in Manhattan and moved to Baltimore two years later.

I have always been passionate about animals and the job fit me perfectly. I relocated to Colorado and decided that the veterinary world is where I want to be. I joined the Falcon Animal Hospital team in June 2016. When I am not working at the hospital I am teaching yoga and spending time with my mutt Juno.
