About Amy

Amy was born and raised in Vermont, the Green Mountain State, where maple syrup runs smooth and snow and cold are never strangers. There, Amy started her path in veterinary medicine as a veterinary assistant at a small, but busy private practice. While working as a veterinary assistant, Amy attended college to become a veterinary technician and graduated in 1996. Wanting to find sunlight and bigger mountains, Amy moved to Colorado in 1998 and stumbled upon a job in the anesthesia section at CSU. Amy started her employment stocking and cleaning the anesthesia area while honing her anesthesia skills and working her way up the ranks as an anesthesia technician. Amy completed and passed her anesthesia specialty exam in 2005 through the Academy of Veterinary Technicians in Anesthesia and Analgesia and is still a member. Amy became the anesthesia supervisor in 2012 promoting the importance of staff well-being and highlighting the vital role veterinary technicians play in veterinary medicine. Amy is very passionate about providing only the best in patient care and will go to great lengths to ensure that happens on a day-to-day basis. Naturally, Amy has a lot of pets (!) that she shares with her wife, always some beagles, surrounded by many cats.
