The Winning Team.
Kristin - Lead Veterinary Nurse
Kristin is a Colorado Springs native, who has been a part of the Bear Creek family since 2008. She has devoted the better part of her life to caring for everyone's pets, family and strangers alike. As the Lead Veterinary Technician her mission is to ensure a level of compassion that transcends just a vet visit into an unforgettable experience that creates a trusting bond with pets and their parents. Outside of Bear Creek, Kristin enjoys celebrating the beauty of the west side or spending time with her family and fur kids. Among those fur kids are her two dogs Walter and Smeagol, two cats Wheatley and Enix, and two chinchillas Janelle and Pepper. We look forward to building upon our Bear Creek history with Kristin and all who enter through our doors.
Ashley - Veterinary Nurse
Ashley comes to Colorado Springs from Fairbanks, Alaska, where she was born and raised. Early on in her childhood she developed a love for animals. She fulfilled that love by helping her parents take care of their sled dog team of 20 dogs, a house dog, and two cats. She started her undergraduate work in biology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Eventually she considered a new path and graduated with Bachelor's in Science in Psychology. After marrying in North Pole, Alaska, Ashley and her husband were moved to Colorado Springs for their first duty station together.
Ashley's love for animals grew as she worked as a veterinary technician assistant at Chena Ridge Veterinary Clinic in Alaska. Given the opportunity, she desired to learn all she could about the profession. After moving to Colorado, she focused her care to her three furry kids and husband. Picking the two easiest breeds to be part of the family, her hands were full with their Jack Russell Terrier, Sage, their Beagle puppy, Winston, and their handsome cat, Tucker. She spends her free time with the family, playing soccer, fly fishing, and playing ice hockey (she did grow up in Alaska after all).
Maggie - Veterinary Nurse - CVT
Maggie is a Colorado native. She grew up in Penrose, Colorado and graduated from Florence High School. After high school, Maggie moved to Colorado Springs where she worked as a CNA and coffee barista. She then decided to pursue her true passion which was four legged patients instead of two. From the time she was a little girl, Maggie always loved animals. She enrolled in Pima Medical Institute and completed her veterinary assistant certificate. She then decided to go back to school to become a veterinary technician. Just recently, she completed her veterinary technician degree and is planning to take the state exam to become a certified veterinary technician in July 2017.
When Maggie isn't at school or work, she enjoys spending time with her husband, her two year old son Landon, and her two fur babies Bailey and Bandyt.
