Chelsea Brown is a Colorado Native born on the Air Force Academy. After growing up and graduating high school in Colorado Springs she contemplated joining the military like two previous generations. However, after passing her ASVABS and PE at MEPS, she elected instead to attend the Community College of Denver in order to pursue her passion in Veterinary Medicine. During school, she balanced a job at Alameda East Veterinary Hospital’s boarding/daycare facility and a bartending job. Her year of experience as kennel technician allowed her the opportunity to build a relationship with patients and owners at AEVH. This made it difficult to turn down a position as a member of the ER and Critical Care swing staff in 2014. The position at a high volume critical emergency and referral facility, allowed her a plethora of experience and the opportunity to excel as technician in a multitude of departments such as radiology, pharmacology, surgery, oncology, internal medicine, neurology, ICU, and triage. Being limited as far as options and with veterinary medicine changing all around her, she struggled as to where to turn in or order to gain more experience in medicine and patient care as she didn’t want to limit her abilities or education.
Therefore, she has moved out of her realm of comfortably in order to learn what medicine and patient care means in a different environment, and she embraces all that Alpenglow has to offer. Chelsea looks forward to all the new doctors, staff, and owners have to offer. Eventually she hopes to obtain her VTS in Emergency and Critical Care once qualified given all the medicine at her new hospital has to offer, and she also hopes to also eventually obtain her Bachelor’s in Biology in order to expand her knowledge and help all animals not just of the domestic kind. However, in the interim your furry friends are just the kind of challenge she is looking for and looks forward to the opportunity to strengthen your bond, ease their pain, and alleviate your concerns.
In her spare time Chelsea enjoys spending time with her boyfriend Gary fishing, camping, or just stay in. They have three rescued cats Zephyr, Zola, and Gandalf. You can occasionally catch them camping or boating with Chelsea’s parents and their dogs she and her sister raised Maximus and Toosday.
