As a Colorado native, Dr. Fox grew-up spending most of her days outdoors. She had an obvious love for animals that was most notable when she was 3 and colored herself with orange and black smelly markers and walked around the house stating she was a tiger. Although she couldn’t become a tiger when she grew-up, she did become the next best thing: a veterinarian.
She received her Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degrees from Colorado State University, where she triple-majored in Biological Sciences, Zoology and Spanish Language, Literature, and Culture with a minor in Biomedical Sciences. Within a few months of graduation, she was off to Scotland to begin her veterinary medicine program at the University of Edinburgh’s Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies.
During her time in Scotland, she was able to travel the world both for veterinary purposes and for pleasure. She has lived in Iceland for 3 months leading tours around southern Iceland on horseback and traveled to Hokkaido, Japan to work with the veterinary school and several wildlife rehabilitation centers.
After graduating veterinary school, Dr. Fox completed a one-year, small animal general rotating internship at a busy specialty medicine and emergency practice in Fort Collins, where she was immersed in emergency medicine, soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery, and complex internal medicine cases. After internship, she did a couple of years in general practice to continue to hone her skills; however, emergency medicine is where her true interest remained. She is extremely excited to join the CVSG team and feels privileged to help support the health and strong bond between her animal patients and their human companions through advanced veterinary care. Outside of work, Dr. Fox is an avid hiker and camper with her pup, Mel, and enjoys taking the time to relax and play her piano and various other instruments!
