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!!

Kim – Administrative Assistant


My name is Kim Mock, I am originally from New Jersey and moved to Colorado about a year and a half ago to be closer to the mountains. Growing up we always had pets so my love of animals started very young. My family and I would also foster cats until they found their forever homes. I love that my job here at Bear Valley allows me to interact with animals on a daily basis, my background is in Billing and Administrative Work. In my free time, I love to just be outside, any kind of outdoor activity, I also love to travel to see live music. I think my best trait is that I am always willing to help others and assist them with whatever they need.

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.

Ashley – Kennel Technician

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.

Stacey – Customer Service Representative

My name is Stacey and I was born and raised in Colorado. I love to travel and explore new places. I got married to my amazing husband on September 10, 2017, at Disneyland. In my spare time, I like to watch movies, put puzzles together and work on my archery skills.
I have always loved animals and that love came at a very young age because we always had animals around. Growing up, I don’t remember not ever having a pet. I now have a German Shepherd, Minnie and a Basset Hound, Toby. I love working here because I get to see all of the wonderful pets that come in and leave with the help that they need.
