My entire life has revolved around horses. I was lucky enough to spend many years on our family cattle ranch in Montana. This is where my equine foundation began. I have been fortunate enough to travel around the country and gain experience in many different equine disciplines. I have trained many horses, worked on guest ranches, exercised racehorses, barrel raced, worked on breeding farms, studied wild horses, worked at a Standardbred harness racing track and more. For the past few years I have been trying my hand at team roping and I love it. I feel that this broad spectrum of experience helps me to understand horses on many levels.I obtained my Bachelors of Science degree in Animal Science from Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana. In 1997, I got my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Colorado State University. I completed a 1 year internship at Pioneer Equine Hospital in Oakdale, California and practiced for 2 years in Las Vegas, Nevada at Desert Pines Equine Medical & Surgical Center. My husband and I moved back to Colorado and I established Waverly Equine Services in 2000. I love being a veterinarian and my goal is to continue to bring you quality care for your horses combined with compassion.

Caring for animals, both large and small has always been my passion. I’ve had the opportunity to volunteer and work for many non profit small and large animal rescues over the years, including Larimer Humane Society. I grew up around horses and have been riding primarily Hunters/Jumpers since I was a little girl. In 2008 I graduated from Colorado State University with a BA in Art Education and a Teacher License.
