Certified Veterinary Technician
My name is Francesca, and I am very excited to join the team here at Wellington veterinary hospital as a vet tech. I grew up in San Francisco California, but I was actually born in Denver. I recently packed up and moved to Fort Collins with all three of my beloved pets. My dog Ducati, my cat Honey, and my Lineolated parakeet Zuzu. Somehow, they all get along! I was very lucky to start working at a veterinary hospital straight out of high school and discovered my dream job. Outside of work I have a passion for horses and riding and enjoy the outdoors as long as my dog is with me.
I recently graduated from CSU with a bachelor’s degree in Biology and have volunteer experience in animal care at both the Fort Collins Cat rescue and Larimer Humane Society. I live in Fort Collins with my husband, Mike and our three pets, Ellie a black lab/blue heeler mix dog, and a tortie-tiger cat named Tilly, and our second dog Tucker. In my spare time I like to go hiking, snowboarding, and traveling.
I recently graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a bachelors degree in biology and moved to Northern Colorado shortly thereafter. I started CSU's Veterinarian program in August 2016. I’ve always had a passion for animals and medicine and am excited to be a part of a great team. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, reading, site seeing, hiking and backpacking up in the mountains with my Saint Bernard Sadie.

Hey there! My name is Chloe. I moved to Fort Collins from my home in Durango, Colorado in 2011. I had found that I was extremely passionate about science, and so I attended Colorado State University for four years to get my bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences. While in school I spent my extra time working at Cold Stone Creamery, volunteering at an animal shelter, interning at various veterinary clinics, and working with at-risk youth. I also played on a competitive women's roller derby team for two years! These days I try to enjoy the Colorado outdoors as much as possible by hiking, longboarding, running, and climbing 14ers! I started working at Wellington Veterinary Hospital in July 2015, and I have loved every minute of it. I currently live with my boyfriend, and we have a Leopard Gecko named Reggie and a wonderful Yorkie named Rosco. I applied to Veterinary school so I can further pursue my passion for veterinary medicine.
I moved to Fort Collins from Salt Lake, Utah in June of 2016 with my fiancé. I have a Bachelors in Zoology from Weber State University.

My hobbies include hiking, playing video games (I love Zelda), reading and crafts.
Allysa was born and raised in the Chicagoland area. After attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she obtained her Bachelors Degree in Genetics, she moved out here to the beautiful state of Colorado to pursue her passion in veterinary medicine. Before joining this stellar animal care team, Allysa worked and interned in a range of animal care settings, taking care of everything from hedgehogs to cows, and anything in between. She also recently completed an internship rehabilitating wild animals at the Greenwood Wildlife Rehab Center in Longmont. When Allysa isn't hiking, biking, or kicking back and reading a nice book, she enjoys watering her mini succulent farm and her beloved basil plant, Henry.
Hi everyone! I was born in New Jersey but raised right here in Fort Collins. I love Colorado. When my husband and I are not enjoying the amazing Colorado landscape via camping, hiking, or fishing with our dogs Bourbon and Thessa we are snuggled up on the couch at home watching comedies. I was so happy to join the Wellington Veterinary Hospital team in 2015, I get to do what I really love, hanging out with dogs and cats (and the occasional rat or bunny) all day!
