Emily - Aurora Hills Animal Hospital

Emily, Certified Veterinary Technician
My name is Emily and I am originally from Apple Valley, Minnesota where I grew up with two older sisters, my parents, and our Yorkie, Mia. I attended college at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse where I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor in Marketing. I moved to Denver, Colorado in the end of August of 2012 and obtained my AAS in Veterinary Technology online through San Juan College in November 2014. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, especially my two nieces Ellie and Payton, being outdoors, and teaching myself how to play guitar. I have had a passion for animals my entire life and look forward to being able to work with them on a daily basis.

Kyla, Certified Veterinary Technician
I am a Colorado native and received an Associate of Applied Science degree from Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology in 2012 and am a Certified Veterinary Technician.  I have always felt a connection with animals, and the ability to help them when they’re sick is a continuing source of joy for me.  My enthusiasm for medicine and compassion for pets and people is matched with a commitment to my professional growth.  I am thrilled to be a member of the team and am very excited to be a part of the mission, looking forward to each new adventure.  I share my home with my boyfriend and two fuzzy kids Kiki the cat and Jelly the dog.  In my spare time, I enjoy supporting local music and comedy acts, practicing yoga, enjoying the beauty and diversity that is Colorado any way I can, and of course, brunch!.

Lindsey, Veterinary Technician Assistant
I grew up in Ripon Wisconsin and have an identical twin sister. In my free time I love to go hunting, fishing, camping, and hiking.  Growing up I had cats, dogs, rabbits, fish, lizards and lots more pets.  For 5 years I worked on dairy farms milking cows and taking care of all the sick animals. I recently moved to Colorado to attend Bel Rea Animal Institute to become a Certified Veterinary Technician.   I have always had a passion for working with animals and I couldn't be happier to be doing it everyday.

Mary - Aurora Hills Animal Hospital

Mary, Client Care Representative

I am a native of Colorado. After school I moved east. I lived in Washington, DC for more than 20 years. I returned to Denver in 2011 with my cat Tommy P.

In 2005 I made a career change and started the fulfilling work of caring for pets. I was a dog walker / pet sitter for the Nation’s Capital pets.

Upon returning to Colorado, I moved into the veterinary side of animal care. A client who is a habitual cat rescuer, brought Talula into our lives.

Tommy P, Talula and I were all enjoying the benefits of living in Colorful Colorado when young Stevie joined us.

Stevie is yet another life Dr. Reilly has saved. Stevie came into Aurora Hills Animal Hospital with a crushed right back leg. Dr. Reilly performed an amputation/neuter. Stevie came home to join us. Stevie has brought with him more happiness then we knew was possible.

Chyna Chyna, Technician Assistant
I was born in  Colorado.  I have four horses, three cats and one dog.  I ride my horses competitively, in a sport called endurance riding.  I have always loved animals.  I was first introduced to the idea of becoming a veterinarian in eight grade.  I talked with my science teacher and he knew of a veterinarian that might be interested in showing me the ropes.  I came to Aurora Hills Animal Hospital, and met Dr. Reilly.  I started by shadowing her for almost two years, and learned a great deal of information on medicine and small animals. When I turned sixteen she hired me, and now I am excited to be more hands on with the animals.

Calvin - Aurora Hills Animal Hospital

Calvin, Aurora Hills Animal Hospital Mascot
Calvin came to live with us in April 2013.  He had a urinary obstruction and was so sick due to kidney failure that Dr. Reilly feared he would not live.  After 6 days of intensive care he pulled through.  In the following 4 months his obesity was addressed as he lost nearly 1/3 of his original body weight.
These days, he struts around the clinic like he owns it.  You can also find him lounging in the reception area as our official greeter.  He is a handsome boy who loves to be gazed upon by his adoring fans!
