Our Staff


Kirsten - Client Care Specialist

Kirsten was born and raised in Colorado. She lived briefly in Richmond, VA before spending 13 years in Chicago, 3 years in Santa Fe, and finally returning to Manitou Springs. She joined us at Clearview in July of 2018. At the clinic, she loves watching health progress of happy, healthy pets. When not at work, she spends time exploring the outdoors with Uno, an 8-year-old dog adopted from PAWS in Chicago. She also enjoys sightseeing drives, taking photos of everything, podcasts, music, museums, and design.


KC - Client Care Specialist

KC comes from Brazil, Indiana...originally. She comes here by way of Key Largo FL Indiana, Oregon, Georgia, Taiwan, and Okinawa (a military family). While helping people out at the front desk, she loves meeting people and their pets, and particularly sharing cat stories. KC has three cats of her own. Max, a retired crime-fighting cat, is also known as "El Gato" and "The Terrible Tiger". Lola, a secret agent and confidante of Max, used to go by "The Masked One" before her own retirement. Bo "The White Menace" was their logistics coordinator. Now all three support KC in her work and leisure activities; when not at work, KC writes horror fiction (she administrates the Greater Rocky Mountain Horror Writers' APA). KC is the proud daughter of a Vietnam 3-tour combat veteran - go army!


Heather - Certified Veterinary Technician

Heather originally comes from Newport News, Virginia. She is an identical twin! She joined the army in 2011 and was stationed at For Carson. When she got out of the army at the end of 2017, she decided to continue her career in veterinary medicine here in Colorado. After finishing vet tech school and completing her licensure, she worked at a local animal ER for about 8 months before joining us at Clearview Animal Hospital. Heather's family includes two 7-year-old pitbull mixes. Major is a big, 75-lb brindle-and-white baby that loves to be held and cuddled. Freedom (black-and-white) was a victim of dog fighting; once his trust was gained, he turned into a playful puppy and Major and Freedom bonded immediately. Freedom loves napping and sunbathing. At work, Heather especially enjoys assisting in surgical procedures and being part of the process of nurturing patients back to health. Outside of work, she spends time with her husband and young daughter; she also enjoys crafting, drawing, and painting.

Frank - Veterinary Technician:

Frank is originally from Long Island, NY and joined us in June of 2016. He especially enjoys cleaning your pets' teeth! When he's not treating pet periodontal disease he spends his time skateboarding (which he's been doing since 1999). He also collects vinyl records and cassettes and likes to watch horror movies and go to live concerts.

Abby - Veterinary Technician

Abby is originally from Island Park, Idaho. She loves obtaining blood samples and placing intravenous catheters; she is also generally intrigued with learning about medications and how they affect the body. Abby has one dog, Maverick; he is a Labrador/Husky mix who is a goofball but is also very smart. Abby joined us at Clearview in 2019. She loves being outside and away from the city on old country roads, where you can see the stars and pine trees. Her passion is horses and at some point in her life, she will be owning one.

Sam - Veterinary Technician:

Sam is from Manitou Springs and joined us in June of 2019. He has a special love for cats, and also enjoys helping identify and treat parasites as well as working with all our laboratory equipment. When not at work, he enjoys swimming, competitive video games, and taking naps. Sam has a large family of pets. Princess Badass is a cat who can't be trusted not to knock cups onto the floor. Gizmo is a gentle giant of a Norwegian Forest Cat. Stella is a polydactyl cat (has extra toes) who loves to snuggle. Burnt Toast is a nearsighted kitty who loves wet cat food and hiding in boxes. Jackal is the lone dog, a sweet beagle mix who loves treats, cuddling, and trips to the dog park. Sam himself is the youngest in a family of 14 kids.
