Mary, Client Care Representative

I am a Colorado native who lived in Washington, DC for over 20 years.  Upon returning to Colorado, I became a proud team member at Aurora Hills Animal Hospital. I have always loved animals and truly enjoys interacting with Aurora Hills Animal Hospital clients and their pets. I have three cats; Tommy P, Talula and the beloved ‘Stevie 3 Paws’.  Stevie is one of the many animals whose life was saved by Dr. Reilly.  Stevie was wounded as a kitten and his right back leg was so damaged, amputation was the only lifesaving option.  Stevie is almost as agile as a 4-legged cat and is very mischievous! Calvin, one of the feline mascots at Aurora Hills Animal Hospital spends his weekends and holidays with me and my crew.

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!

Branden, Certified Veterinary Technician


Kendra, Veterinary Technician Assistant

I was born and raised in Wyoming and moved to the Denver area in 2011 and haven't looked back since. I've known since I was 4 years old, and saw my first dolphin, that I was destined for a career working with animals! I graduated from the University of Wyoming in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology. I followed my passion for animal behavior into various internships with dolphins, sea lions, seals, walruses and polar bears and have been a certified dog trainer. I am currently attending the Community College of Denver and expect to graduate in May 2020 with an Associates of Applied Science in Veterinary Technology. After that, I'll complete my VTNE to be a Certified Veterinary Technician. I share my home with my husband and four fur babies: 3 kitties: Marcus and Shadow who are brothers and Ava our Maine Coone mix, and our 86 lb 8 month old Rottweiler puppy! We love to take in Colorado's marvels through hiking and photography but also love our shows, movies and video games! It's an honor to work for Dr. Reilly! I love all her thirst for knowledge and eagerness to teach! We have so much fun here!

Calvin - Aurora Hills Animal Hospital

R.I.P. 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.  He later went on to have more obstruction issues that prompted Dr. Reilly to perform a perineal urethostomy.  This greatly helped Calvin for many more years.  Recently Calvin had gastro-intestinal issues that prompted Dr. Reilly to perform a biopsy to see what was going on.  Unfortunately the results were not good.  Poor Calvin had intestinal cancer.  He was put on medication to try and slow the progress but unfortunately the cancer had other plans & Calvin had to be euthanized to end his suffering.  He will be missed by all at the hospital, and especially by Mary who would take Calvin home on the weekends.  He will always be remember as the cat that strutted around the clinic like he owned it and him lounging in the reception area as our official greeter.  He was a handsome boy who loved to be gazed upon by his adoring fans!

We will miss you Calvin.
