Casey- Lead Receptionist

Like the rest of the Mountain Ridge family, Casey developed a love for animals at an early age.  A Wyoming native, she grew up with the constant companionship of dogs, cats, and horses.

Casey earned her Master of Arts degree in French from the University of Wyoming, and in 2015 she decided on a change of scenery and came to Colorado.  She enjoys spending time outdoors hiking, camping and fishing in the mountains, or going home to Wyoming to hunt birds and big game. 

Her other favorite pastimes include reading, quilting and watching Netflix with her cat, Pawdrey Hepburn.

 Ange- Lead Receptionist

Born and raised in Colorado, Ange found her love for animals early in life.  She continued her education when she graduated from PIMA Medical Institute in 2011 with a certification as a Veterinary Assistant.  Ange enjoys spending her free time outdoors.

Her family enjoys camping, hiking, and fishing with their two dogs, Calypso and Daisy Mae.  Her family is also involved in a variety of sports.  Ange's oldest son and her own two daughters all play tackle football, setting a bold example for their baby brother.f

Amber

Since she was a little girl, Amber has been in love with the idea of spending her life around animals.  Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, Amber moved to Lafayette, Colorado at the age of four.  Growing up around cats and dogs, she had always dreamed of becoming a Veterinary Technician, or as she called it, an animal nurse.  In her early twenties, she had the opportunity of owning a couple of horses - her favorite animals.  This made her realize that she wants to work with equine and the bigger animal groups.

After leaving a retail job to work here at Mountain Ridge in the doggy daycare, Amber has moved her way up.  She is now a doggy day care attendant, as well as a receptionist.

Being upstairs, seeing the animals come in and out of the hospital, has inspired her to go back to school to become a Veterinary Technician in order to follow her childhood dream, and support her son and four beautiful cats.  She hopes to one day own a ranch with her future husband, where she will be able to take care of and provide for the animals.
