Amber Jaramillo, RVT

Registered Veterinary Technician

About: Born in Honolulu Hawaii and raised in Lafayette Colorado.
Passion: I have always had a passion for animals since I was a little girl, and knew that I wanted to be a Veterinarian one day. My passion lies in the nursing care of animals. There’s something about the way they snuggle up next to you when they know they can trust you, and you are only there to help. This field is not just a job for me, it’s a way of living my life and fulfilling my passion and love for animals daily.
Family: A supportive husband, as well as 3 rambunctious kiddos that keep me on my toes, and light up my life every time I see them smile.
Fur Babies: 5 cats (Little Bear, Serenity, Apache, Comanche, and Colorado), and a very sweet German Shepherd, Cheyenne.
Favorite Dog Breeds: Working breeds or breeds that most people see as aggressive. (i.e. German Shepherds, Rottweilers, American Pitbull and Staffordshire Terriers, and of course I can’t forget the cattle dogs.)
Downtime: Unwinding in the beautiful Rockies with my furry companions, children, and husband – whether that be a hiking trip for the day, or a camping trip over the weekend. Being in the wilderness away from civilization helps bring my mind back to a calming place, and Mother Nature deserves to be appreciated for all that she gives us to enjoy. And if I’m not going camping over the weekend, I’m hanging out with all my babies and the hubby.
