Becky – Certified Veterinary Technician

Becky-Thompson-CVT

Hi, It’s Becky. I’ve been with the Bear Valley team since Dr. Stevenson’s first day in 2004. Every day is a new adventure. Since becoming a certified veterinary assistant in high school I have worked at small animal clinics, doggie daycares, shelters, emergency care, and even barns.
After high school, I graduated from Bel-Rea and became a certified veterinary technician. I honestly find joy in every aspect of our work at Bear Valley. From helping to educate new pet parents to scaling tartar off teeth. Every part of our work here is to help pets and there is nothing greater.


Alison – Practice Lead / Certified Veterinary Assistant

Alison-Haskins-CVA

My name is Alison, I have worked as a Certified Veterinary Assistant for BVVCC since 2007. I completed my internship at Pima Medical Institute with Dr. Stevenson and loved this practice so much I never left! I was born and raised in Colorado and also spent a lot of time with family in Kansas growing up. I remember helping with the animals on my family’s farms and always saw myself in a career caring for pets. In 2017, I became a member of the Leadership Team and helped create our Mission Statement and Core Values. I am so excited to be here to help our patients, clients, and staff the best that I can every day. My boyfriend and I have 1 cat named Spot aka Chubs who we love dearly, even when she wakes us up in the middle of the night demanding food. My best traits are to always put my patient’s needs first and that I love to make people laugh.

Anastasia – Certified Veterinary Technician

Anastasia - Certified Veterinary Technician
My name is Anastasia and I was born in eastern Europe in a country called Belarus. I moved to Colorado with my family when I was 5. Since I can remember I have always loved animals, from playing with the animals on my grandmother’s farm to continuing my passion today in the veterinary field. I graduated with my AAS from Community College of Denver and passed my VTNE in 2014. I am continuing my education by taking my pre-med requirements at the Metropolitan State University of Denver to get accepted into veterinary school. When I’m not at Bear Valley caring for your furry loved ones I am exploring the mountains with my 4-year-old rescued poodle named Winston or at concerts with my friends. I also have a sassy cat named Captain Cuddles (Cece for short) and an adorable hedgehog name Stella.

Leslie – Veterinary Assistant

Leslie - Veterinary Assistant

My name is Leslie Espinoza. I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. I come from a family of seven. I recently graduated from Pima Medical School as a Certified Veterinarian Assistant. My love for animals came at a very young age! As a kid, we always had pets from dogs to birds to fishes and even rabbits! We also traveled a lot to Mexico and I always noticed how there are so many animals in need that don’t have proper homes. I knew if I could help them by simply giving them water and even some food I would feel better. Secretly wishing I could bring them all home. That is why I decided to peruse a career in one of the most satisfying fields, Veterinary Medicine. My journey started last September when I enrolled in school to get my certificate. In mid-May, I was blessed with the opportunity to do my internship at Bear Valley Veterinary Care Center where I learned a lot of hands-on techniques. Shortly after I became an official staff member doing reception and helping the other technicians when they need me to. The experience I acquired will be helpful in my journey to one day become a Certified Veterinarian Technician.

On my free time, I spend a lot of time with my family. We always get together and make dinner at my parent’s house. One of my hobbies is collecting makeup. I also enjoy watching all genres of movies with my boyfriend of 5 years. And last but not least I love spending time with my dogs. Gumbo, 2 1/2-year-old Boxer, Diesel, 1-year-old boxer. They are my babies!!

Yesenia – Veterinary Assistant

Yesenia Roman-Munoz - Veterinary Assistant

Hi, my name is Yesenia and I’ve worked for BVVCC since March of 2019. I started off doing my internship here in January of 2019 and decided this is where I wanted to continue my work with animals. Since I’ve been young I’ve always liked being around animals from horses to hamsters. I plan on returning to school for my veterinary technician certification and continuing my education for animals.

 

Brooke – Kennel Technician

 

Kayla – Kennel Technician


My name is Kayla Stevenson. Being that my mom is the owner, I grew up in this hospital and have always had a love for animals. I am a senior in high school and although I love animals I have decided that my passion is for children. Next fall I will be attending The University of Northern Colorado to receive my nursing degree and eventually hope to become a neonatal nurse. I started swimming at the age of 6 years old and am still currently swimming for my high school swim team. I also play the flute in marching band and have grown to become fascinated with the art of music. I have 3 pets, a cat named Missy, a coonhound named Cayanne, and a pit bull named Nikki.

 

Sergio – Kennel Technician


I moved to the United States when I was 15 from Durango Mexico. When I was young, I was raised around animals and ever since then, I knew I wanted to help animals. As time passed, I grew up, graduated from high school, and worked in a variety of different jobs. I didn’t find happiness in any of my jobs and that’s when I decided to enroll in Pima Medical Institute in the program for veterinary assisting. I believe that this decision will change my life completely. I feel that as a veterinary assistant, I am one step closer to helping animals every day. I have three pets of my own. One dog named Taco and two horses. In my free time, I like to ride my horse Pinta and I love to stay active.

 

Valerie, Kennel Technician

Hey it’s Valerie, or just Val for short! I own two dogs, two cats, and have had different reptiles as well! I love animals and will be starting the vet tech program, in conjunction with an associates on animal behaviors, at the Community College of Denver sometime in 2020. I also plan to pursue a certification to become a tattoo artist in the future. Originally wanting to major in illustration or animation, I began working here in March 2019, and fell in love with the work done here at BVVCC that I changed career course. I aspire to find love in both art and animal wellness within my life!

My name is Danielle, but I like to go by Dani. I was born and raised in North Bay, Ontario, Canada, but have lived in Colorado for the past 15 years. I grew up in a small farming area and have always been comfortable around animals, from pigs and chicken to dogs and cats. In our household, we have our two cats, Theo and Nisto, then three dogs, JoJo, Kevin, and Yeti. On my days off, I enjoy relaxing around the house, jeeping with my boyfriend, and exploring Colorado. I have been a saber fencer since 2005 and have been a violinist from the age of 9.
