Diane graduated from Bucknell University in 1998 with a BS in Environmental Geology. However, animals have always been her passion, so instead of pursuing grad school, she instead moved to Denver to attend the Bel-Rea Institute. She has spent the majority of her time in general practice, but has also worked at VRCC and the Canine Rehabilitation and Conditioning Group after getting her CCRVN from the Canine Rehabilitation Institute. Most of the time, she is is working with Dr. Gaynor in his pain management specialty practice. She has a special interest in behavior and became Fear Free certified this past year and hopes to make your pets’ visits less stressful. Currently, she is attending the Karen Pryor Academy which is a dog training program that focuses on positive reinforcement.
In her spare time, she likes to hike, camp, SUP, snowshoe or snowboard. She currently lives with 3 dogs and 2 cats. She is involved with flyball (a fun canine relay race) and occasionally her club does the halftime shows at Nuggets and Mammoth games. Her oldest dog is now retired, but her younger two still compete. Diane is also a volunteer at the Summit County Animal Shelter.
