DVM, Owner, and Hospital “mom”
A seasoned veterinarian and a lifelong dreamer, Andrew is the heart of this operation, although he would argue that such a label belongs to his employees. He firmly believes that together, we can do great things.
Andrew and Peter saw potential in this practice, and took over the business in July 2017. Since then, it has been his goal to foster a good quality of life for his patients as well as his employees. His vision for the future of Mountain Ridge is founded on forward movement; he wants this practice to evolve into more than a run-of-the-mill animal hospital. Amongst the team, his caring and sentimental nature have earned him the title of hospital “mom.” Andrew’s roots stem from central Pennsylvania. Like many of us, he fell in love with the Rocky Mountain West, where he finds respite in the great outdoors, and he prefers to be on horseback in the mountains as much as possible. His fascination with Civil War history is second only to his obsession with coffee; “Coffee is king,” he says. When he’s not running the hospital, he is helping run his home with his delightful wife, D’Ann. Together, they wrangle two charming children, Calvin and Arabella, as well as two dogs, three barn cats, two horses, one parakeet, 10 hens, four ducks, one betta fish, and a partridge in a pear tree.
Motivated by her compassion and enthusiasm, Jenny comes to work every day prepared to give her all to help her patients. She invested a lot of time and effort to become a really remarkable veterinarian—she can even do acupuncture on your dog!
With her luminous smile and jubilant laughter, Jenny fills our hospital halls with sunshine. Having devoted over a decade of her life to caring for patients that come to Mountain Ridge, her dedication to this field is illustrated in her work every day. Her compassion for animals and their owners is outshone only by her love for her three-year-old son, August. Jenny’s interest in animals expands to the equine realm, where she has a history of riding Dressage. In her downtime, Jenny enjoys hanging with friends and family and heading to the mountains for some hiking. She has hiked several 14ers; her favorites were the four peaks of the Presidential Range.
With her gentle soul and caring heart, Erin couldn’t be more perfectly suited for a veterinary career.
The Mountain Ridge staff is lucky to count Erin as a part of our family. Gifted with patience and compassion, her presence here radiates kindness and positivity. Outside of work, her family had a recent expansion with the addition of baby boy Lewis! She has been very busy being a first-time mom, and she reports that her experience so far includes lots of diapers, laundry, and love. She also enjoys being a mom to two fur babies, Captain Scurvy Purr the black and white domestic shorthair, and Watson the orange tabby. A Colorado native, Erin was born and raised in Boulder. She spends her spare time running, hiking, and hanging out with her awesome husband, Blake.
Brinn’s genial smile and warm demeanor make her a splendid addition to the team. Compassion for her patients and their human companions is one of her core values.
Brinn remembers wanting to be a veterinarian since she was in the second grade; she always wanted to be an advocate for and give a voice to those creatures who can’t speak for themselves. We are fortunate to count her convivial company among the Mountain Ridge family. With her upbeat attitude and extensive ER experience, she was able to jump into the action here from day one. Originally from Indianapolis, Brinn went to vet school at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in Knoxville. She moved to Colorado in June 2016 for a small animal rotating internship at Aspen Meadow Veterinary Specialists and Alpenglow Veterinary Specialty. Like most transplants, she fell in love with the mountains and decided to stay. She enjoys hiking and riding her bike, and she wants to become a good skier—although so far, the slopes are winning that battle. Brinn considers herself as a bit of a foodie, and she gets a lot of enjoyment out of the local beer scene. She enjoys traveling, reading, and she’s a self-proclaimed Harry Potter nerd—her name IS Granger, after all.
