Paige Awtrey

Veterinary Technician

Hi there! My name is Paige. I went to PIMA medical institute for schooling to become a veterinary technician. I began working in Emergency medicine but realized a smaller practice was my calling. I am 100% a cat person, though I do love our canine friends as well.

Mandi Florea

Veterinary Technician

I was born and raised in Colorado Springs CO. I graduated from CAVT in December of 2019 in Veterinary studies. I'm a huge goofball and I love all things outdoors. I am a huge fan of exotics. I own 1 boa constrictor and 3 tarantulas. Animals are my main passion in life. I got into veterinary medicine because ever since I was a small child child I was bringing home sick animals to nurse them back to health.

Da Silva 

Veterinary Assistant

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.
