Stephanie 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.


Whitney Maple

Veterinary Assistant

She searched aimlessly for a career that fit her desires. She graduated Tabor in 2015 with a bachelors in Visual arts, and began doing graphic design. But, alas, this didn't fill her desires. So she stopped and thought long and hard. And suddenly, it dawned on her..."pets." She began searching and finally found a place that would teach her the skills and techniques. She settled down at Cook Veterinary Hospital to learn under the masters. And now her abilities have given her a semi okay title, the Veterinary Assistant. You can find her at your one and only Cook Veterinary Hospital. She also likes volleyball and coaching, video games and ramen. She is...Whitney Maple.
