Katie Delafuente

Veterinary Technician

I am currently attending Apex College of Veterinary Technology to become a Certified Veterinary Technician. I have a special interest in surgery and anesthesia. I have always loved animals and really enjoy being able to work with them and help them every day! Although I love all animals, Corgis have a special place in my heart! At home I have two furr-babies, a corgi named Zeke and a border collie named Zion, one goldfish named charky, and a husband! Outside of work I enjoy playing video games, traveling and most importantly-cuddling my dogs!

Da Silva 

Veterinary Technician

I'm from the east coast born in Lowell, Massachusetts. I attended Becker college and transferred to UMass Amherst where I graduated in 2017 in Veterinary studies. I moved out here about 4 months, after graduation to experience what Colorado has to offer. I love the outdoors and pushing myself to new limits! I have a big love for animals especially my cat Honiee and a big heart for food. I'm just trying to experience what life has to offer one step at a time.

I was born and raised in Pueblo, CO and I’ve known I want to work in vet med for as long as I can remember. I am currently a student CAVT and will be graduating in 2023. I love spending time with my family, friends, and especially my German Shepherd Korra (whom I love more than anything). In my free time you can find me in the mountains with my camera and dog or finding my next adventure.
