Alison – Practice Manager
My name is Alison and I am our Practice Manager. I started out as a Certified Veterinary Assistant Intern for Dr. Stevenson way back in 2007. I liked it so much I never left! Over the years I have continued to improve my skills and found that I have a passion for leadership. I find it very rewarding to hire and train our team to give our clients and patients the best veterinary experience possible. My family is from rural Kansas but I am a Colorado native and plan to stay here forever, I love it here. My animals are my babies. My chubby cat Spot and one-eyed dog Willy are both patients here and love our Vets and staff. My goal is to make the staff and our clients laugh every day.
Matt – Pet Resort Manager
My name is Matt. I have officially been at Bear Valley since October of 2020, I say “officially” because I am Dr. Stevenson’s husband, so I have been behind the scenes since day one. I joined Bear Valley Vet to help open the Pet Resort, which is something that fits me perfectly. My family always had a variety of pets, and I grew up wanting to be the most fun person in an animal’s life—rather than the one who is going to poke them with a needle. I am a Colorado native that loves to spend time outside. Whether that be camping with our family of foster kids, dogs, and biological children, or riding my motorcycle all alone. I also like to build things. My collection of tools is continuously growing, but I don’t think it will ever be complete. I hope that I get to meet you and your pet sometime soon, and if we can assist in taking care of your furry pal while you sneak in a vacation, it would be our pleasure.
Becky – Certified Veterinary Technician
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.
Yesenia – 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.
Danielle – Client Service Representative
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. I have been with Bear Valley Vet since February 2019, and find it very fulfilling to do whatever I can to help treat someones pet.

Jesse – Boarding Assistant Manager
Hi, my name is Jesse. I joined the Bear Valley team in April of 2022, but they already feel like family to me. I moved to Colorado from Los Angeles California in August of 2020, and I brought with me my love for animals as well as over 10 years of experience working at training and boarding facilities. Here at Bear Valley, I am assistant manager for the boarding department. My love for animals has always been with me. Growing up, I was trusted to care for my large family’s many pets, and I have lived with animals ever since. When I’m not at work, you can find me playing my guitar, attending a concert, hiking or spending time with friends. I believe there is no greater honor than caring for our animal companions, and I can’t wait to meet yours!
