Justin moved to Denver in 2004 from his hometown in northern California. He is currently studying at C.U. Denver for a B.S. of Biology, Chemistry, and focusing on Pre-Veterinary Medicine. He plans on continuing to obtain his DVM, M.S. in Zoology, and then specialize in Pathology and Lab Animal Medicine. His veterinary interests include exotics, FIV-Ple research, and conservation of endangered species.
Most of his time away from VRCC is spent interning at Wildlife Rehabilitation Centers and other areas of the veterinary field. With the very limited time outside of work and school, Justin enjoys volunteering at a variety of animal shelters and getting involved in Denver’s fashion/art scene. Most of all he loves to spend time with his cat Louise and run with his dog Thomas.
Jen is a native of Colorado and recently obtained her certification of veterinary technician and is furthering her education next fall at CSU. When she is not busy with school and work, she enjoys camping and going to the lake, playing competitive volleyball and hanging out with her boyfriend and three kids Riley(7), Eli(5) and Gabby(8 months old) and Moose her Lab/St. Bernard pup.
Kelly is originally from Colorado and has lived here her entire life until a recent move to South Carolina. She previously worked at VRCC from 2007 to 2011. Although she enjoyed the ocean in South Carolina, she missed the people, weather, and places of Colorado, including VRCC, and returned to both Colorado and VRCC in the spring of 2012. She loves the sunshine, mountains, reading, bike riding, and taking long walks with her lab mix, Katie.
Kelsey hails from a long background in animal welfare. She began by volunteering with her local pet rescue organization in her hometown of Simi Valley, CA. After moving to Colorado in 2001, she quickly became an active volunteer at the Longmont Humane Society, later working at the humane society in animal care, foster care, and in the nationally-renowned Training and Behavior Modification Department. She has worked in the veterinary field since 2008, and is very happy to be a part of the amazing team at VRCC!
Kelsey plans to pursue a degree in Conservation and Wildlife Biology with minors in Business Administration and Global Environmental Sustainability at Colorado State University. She hopes to research and improve human-wildlife interactions. Her main interests include behavioral studies, conflict resolution, and sustainability.
Kelsey believes that “home is where my dog is” (and cats, she adds!) and her furry family consists of Dany, a lab/GSD who is a registered therapy dog and reads with children, Callalily, a beautiful torbie cat who has helped Kelsey foster over 200 kittens, and Ayla, a spastic but extremely lovable Abyssinian mix. In her free time she enjoys hiking, reading, painting, biking, dancing, and cooking yummy food.
