She loves being outdoors (only in warm weather) and enjoys camping, fishing, walking, horseback riding, classic cars and working around her five acres as well as interior designing and refurbishing furniture. She has 3 dogs, Luna the Chiweenie, Kovu the Doberman, and Eros the Husky. She also has 3 cats, Obie, Sissy VanFlufferstien or Fluff. And Mama kitty. Oh and don’t forget a Ball Python Kaa. Both the two legged and the four-legged kids keep her very bus
Carla joined the West Ridge family in October 2000 and is very proud that she is the longest continuously employed staff member here. She was hired as a receptionist, but has since held the titles of Front Manager, Financial Manager, and Inventory Manager (sometimes all at once). She currently does the bookkeeping at West Ridge. Even though she is squeamish, learning about animals, their medical problems and veterinary treatments are a passion of hers. Customer service is very high on her list of priorities and she is always genuinely happy to help our clients. In fact, now that she works more behind the scenes, she misses seeing all the clients she’s met through the years. Carla lives here in Greeley with her husband, three rambunctious young sons. Whenever possible, she and her family head to the mountains to hike and/or camp. When Carla has free time (what’s that?!) she loves photography, reading, posting to her blog, and spending time with her family.
Interior and Plant Service Manager
Phala joined our team after also being a client. She takes care of all our plants and keeps the hospital looking and smelling nice. She also keeps the hospital festive and decorates for all the holidays and events. We would be lost without her. She is like our MOM and is always helping out where she can. She has pugs and birds.
Social Media & Marketing Manager
