    Jess Nunez

    Jess is a veterinary technician that loves to have a good time in and out of work.  While at work Jess enjoys seeing patients and spending time with her co-workers.  She shares her home with a feisty 9 year old Shar Pei mix and a sweeter than candy 1.5 year old Border Collie.  On her time off she loves hiking, camping, riding her bike, and dock jumping with her dogs; it is safe to say that anything Colorado has to offer she will happily do!  Jess is originally from Florida but grew up on the western part of North Carolina on the outskirts of Asheville.  Her dreams are to pursue medical school and to travel the world.

    Brittney Bauer

    Brittney's passion for animals started when she was very young. She got her very first kitten when she was 7 and from that point on she couldn't live without animals in her life. Brittney graduated with a BAS in Equine Science in 2010. After college, she worked on a horse breeding farm and later worked in a small animal clinic. Her love grows stronger for animals both large and small everyday. Outside of work, Brittney loves to ride horses, play softball, and take care of her fish. She also spends time with her loving yellow labrador named Jenni. Brittney's goal is to make pets as happy as they have made her over the years.
