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).


   

Kim - Veterinary Nurse

Kim recently to Colorado Springs with her fur babies, a long-haired Chihuahua named Sir Melvin of Bensenville and a German Shepherd named Axl, from Chicago's suburbs. Kim's love for caring for animals began at an early age, when she would pretend to be a veterinarian to her stuffed animals. During high school, Kim began working as a kennel attendant and Veterinary Technician at a Veterinary Hospital, with future dreams of continuing education to become a Certified Veterinary Technician. After a few years at the Veterinary Hospital, she moved on to become a Kennel Manager at a puppy store where she provided extensive care to puppies. Five years later, Kim still longed to provide care to animals within a medical setting, so she decided to return to her dream career as a Veterinary Technician.  Kim suddenly decided to sell all of her belongings and move somewhere she can enjoy mountains and wildlife, and she was set on Colorado Springs.
In her free time, Kim is exploring Colorado’s diverse landscapes and seeking the best hiking spots with wildlife sightings.  One of her favorite hobbies is animal and landscapes photography. She have an adoration for gardening flowers and vegetables.
