Ski Town Animal Hospital Staff

Dr. Reese

Veterinarian, Fear Free Certified

Growing up in Florida, Dr. Reese always dreamed of growing up to one day become a “dogtor.” She knew that she would absolutely love to combine her passion for science and medicine with her lifelong love of animals! Now, Dr. Reese gets to help pets and their owners every single day. Dr. Reese attended the University of Florida to earn her Doctorate and become a licensed veterinarian. After graduating in 2013, she moved to Colorado to join fellow outdoor enthusiasts and pet lovers—Dr. Reese quickly fell in love with the mountain town lifestyle, and it wasn’t long before she’d met her husband, Chris. 
Dr. Reese and Chris love spending time with their son, Fisher. They have one dog at home: Doug, who is the perfect mix of goofy and adventurous; and Tater Tot, their loveable feline.



Dr. Ramona

Veterinarian

Dr. Ramona moved to Steamboat Springs in 2017. She grew up in Southern California, graduated from UCLA with a degree in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, and earned her Veterinary degree from University California Davis. Dr. Ramona is having fun raising her daughter, an uncooperative cat, and 2 dogs here in Steamboat. She has always enjoyed the outdoors, hiking, and swimming at the hot springs pool (not in the river, folks! Brr!).



Jackie

Certified Veterinary Technician, Fear Free Certified

Jackie was born and raised in central Florida, where she spent most of her free time caring for her pets and riding and showing horses in the hunter circuit. For her, caring for those that can’t always ask for help is a dream come true! Jackie is a Certified Veterinary Technician with the Ski Town Animal Hospital family. 
Jackie was still in high school when she signed on for her first job at a veterinary clinic. She advanced her career as a Technician, then enrolled in St. Petersburg College in 2015 to study veterinary technology. She completed her degree while working full-time, and graduated in 2017. Jackie has been a Certified Veterinary Technician ever since! 
After helping pets at two other veterinary hospitals in Florida for a total of 12 years, Jackie decided to make a change and moved to Steamboat Springs in the fall of 2020. It wasn’t long before she’d signed on here at Ski Town Animal Hospital. She couldn’t be happier with her choice! Jackie is particularly fond of anesthesia and surgical work, and her favorite part of the job is chatting one-on-one with pet owners and their adorable animal companions every day. 
In her free time, Jackie likes hiking and exploring the outdoors. Her newest hobby is snowboarding, which she learned this past winter. (She’d only seen snow once before!) At home, Jackie and her boyfriend share their lives with several pets. The couple has five lovable cats and two Catahoula/Bulldog mixes named Blue and Earl.



Naomi

Vet Technician Assistant

Naomi grew up on a ranch in New Mexico, then moved to Craig, Colorado. She has tried many careers, including Sheriff’s Deputy, park ranger, and CNA before coming back to her passion of working with animals. She has two weiner dogs and a 3 year old daughter – all of them are a handful! Naomi loves working with Ski Town Animal Hospital because they are an intelligent and compassionate team.



Erin B

Office Manager

Erin B grew up in Ohio dreaming of being an orca trainer at Sea World until politics caught her eye and she went to college in Washington, DC. After college, Erin moved to Alaska where she met her husband, Begee. Erin & Begee then spent 10 years traveling before settling down in Steamboat. After a few years in town, Erin & Begee were able to rescue their dog, Chance, and he is truly the love of their lives. In 2022, Erin made a career change from working for the state of Colorado to joining us at Ski Town Animal Hospital, and she is so excited to be a part of the team!

Erin C

Technician Assistant, Fear Free Certified

Erin has worked the last three summers at a wildlife facility, where she helped to rehabilitate orphaned and injured songbirds. Now, she gets to expand her animal-care experience even further—she’s a Technician Assistant here at Ski Town Animal Hospital!
