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.
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.
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.
Bio coming soon.
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!!
My name is Reyanna, I have worked at BVVCC since August of 2018. I’m originally from California, where I met my fiancé (he’ll be my husband this Christmas!) After he returned from being deployed in the Marine Corps, we decided to come back to his home state of Colorado. My employment background has always been working in a medical setting. I was a Dental Assistant and then worked for a hospital as a Cash Analyst. Of all of the medical scenarios I’ve seen, by far my favorite in helping with has been Veterinary medicine. It’s a very fulfilling and feeling knowing I can be a part in helping someone’s pet, someone’s best-friend.
My name is Sandra, I was born and raised in Denver, Co. I have lived in the Bear Valley area over 20 years. I come from a family of 4. I love to hang out with my family and in my spare time like to ride my Harley. I have 2 daughters and 2 grandsons that are my life. I love the outdoors so hiking, and camping are my hobbies. It gives me pure joy to help with the pets that come in.
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.
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.
My name is Ashley Cialone. I have lived in Colorado my whole life and have always had a love for the outdoors and for animals. I have three dogs, two Shih Tzus named Gir and Mickey, and a rescue dog named Caesar. I am currently attending Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO, and majoring in Zoology with a minor in Spanish. I would like to go to Veterinary School after I earn my degree; my hope is to eventually become either a DVM or a Veterinary Technician. I love to always be very involved in the community; I did marching band in high school for four years and continue to be part of the activity through the CSU marching band.
