My name is Aubrey, and I’m the Client Services Representative here at Aspenwing! I’m so lucky​ to get to see all of our clients and greet patients right as they walk in the door!

I was born in Fairfield, California and moved to Colorado with my family when I was 4 years old, I have called Colorado home ever since. We always had family pets while I was growing up, mostly dogs and cats, but the occasional non-traditional pet, including parakeets, rats, frogs, lizards, rabbits, and many others.

I knew from a very young age that I wanted to work in the veterinary field. I have always had a passion for working with a multitude of different animals, and a great curiosity for the scientific aspect of it. I’ve shadowed with a few local veterinarians, and volunteered at shelters during middle school and high school. I hope to return to school soon and pursue my degree to become a certified veterinary technician, so I can delve even deeper into this awesome field and work even closer with animals.

In my spare time, I love being outdoors in this amazing state. Hiking, fishing, camping and photography are some of my favorite things to do here, and there’s so many great places to do them all! I currently have a small zoo consisting of an Australian cattle dog mix named Pokey, a Dachshund mix named Pirate, and a short haired black cat named Nebula.

Michael – Veterinary Assistant

My love for animals has always been there. I was raised in a small suburb of Oklahoma City where my parents always had animals in the house. My first family pets were a cat named Boots and a Golden Retriever named Bo. I also had a terrarium with a couple of tree frogs that I took care of for years. I loved catching the little lizards that bathed in the sun of our driveway and admiring the neighborhood tortoise that frequently visited our backyard flowerbeds.  Every summer, my family would travel to Estes Park where I was in awe of the wildlife and scenery of Rocky Mountain National Park. My love for the Rocky Mountains never left me, and after two years at the University of Oklahoma, I moved to Colorado to attend the University of Colorado in Boulder.

At CU, I studied integrative physiology and planned on going into a career in human medicine. I not only enjoyed the science side of it, but I was passionate about helping the poor and disadvantaged get the health care they needed. I joined a group called Global Medical Brigades, where we traveled to Central America to set up clinics in impoverished areas that had no access at all to health care.

It was not until I began volunteering at the Humane Society of Boulder Valley in my senior year at CU that I began to shift my interest to different kinds of disadvantaged creatures. I soon realized that caring for animals was what I enjoyed more than anything. I began to immerse myself in working with animals by getting a job at a doggy day care and continuing to volunteer at the Humane Society. After graduating from CU, I shifted my focus into acquiring more experience in the veterinary field in hopes of applying to veterinary school in the near future.

Aspenwing is my first job in the field of veterinary medicine. I feel extremely lucky to be working with Dr. Chappell and our wonderful and talented staff. I learn so much from our staff, patients, and clients every day. I am eager keep learning and growing in order to give your animal family members the best care possible. My job at Aspenwing has reassured me that helping animals is what I want to do for the rest of my life. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, cooking, listening to and playing bluegrass music, and spending time with my two animals; an Australian Cattle Dog mix named Charlie, and a cat named Ozzy.
