Dr. Parsons grew up on a small farm in western Pennsylvania where she fostered her love of animals. She moved west to attend the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine and practiced at a clinic in western Missouri after her graduation. A love of the mountains brought Dr. Parsons out to Colorado. Her favorite part of veterinary medicine is building a bond with pets and their owners and her professional interests are in nutrition and preventative care. In her free time, Dr Parsons enjoys hiking, birding, and training in aerial circus arts. She lives in Longmont with a Corgi named Loki, and a Guinea pig named Genesis.
