Melanie - Veterinary Technician
There are a few things I love about my job in the veterinary field. I love joking around with my co-workers and seeing new & interesting cases. I like the challenge of treating difficult, uneasy patients; trying to “communicate” with them (for lack of a better term) & instill calmness in them. I love it when it works!
Christy - Veterinary Technician
When I graduated college in 2001 I got my bachelor's degree for Criminal Justice. But since I graduated right after 9/11 happened there were no jobs to be had. Well I had to pay bills and rent somehow so I got a Job at Tenaker Pet Care Center in Highlands Ranch. Needless to say I have never looked back. After about 5 yrs there I moved to southeast New Mexico and got a job at a very small veterinary hospital and was there for about 3 1/2 years before I moved back to Colorado being a native I was very home sick and had a recent death in the family so my son and I moved back and I found a job as a Veterinary Tech I was there for almost 5 years. I actually started here at Boulder's Natural Animal as relief but soon became full time and I love it here. I couldn't even begin to think about doing anything else.
Suki- Veterinary Technician
Currently I have my own mini zoo which consists of 4 dogs, 3 ferrets, 2 turtles, 7 mice, a cat and a fish! To say I love animals is a serious understatement!
Working in the veterinary industry for the last 5 years has just enhanced my love for animals of all varieties. My favorite thing about working for Boulders Natural Animal is getting to see all the pets people bring in.
Sam - Client Care Specialist
I have been working at Boulders Natural Animal for about three years, previous to working here I was a pet care specialist at Petsmart and a few other pet stores. Pictured is my tortoise Edgar, but I also have two eclectus parrots, Roxie and Junie and two guinea pigs Coco and Artemis. I love all things pets related and am very happy to work with them daily.
Sonja- Client Care Specialist
I've always had a passion for animals as long as I can remember. Growing up in Florida allowed and encourages me to play with everything that crawled onto our property. I remember being the only one who would hold the Boa in first grade at the alligator farm. I've working in animal care since 1991 and have been in the animal shelter/veterinary setting for at least 13 years. Needless to say, I love what I do.
