Meet the friendly staff at Animal Oasis of the Rockies!
Andrea grew up in the Midwest where she attended Butler University with a focus in Psychology. Andrea decided that business ownership was the only way to go, she started and grew several small businesses until starting Animal Oasis Veterinary Hospital in Naples, FL in 2009. She was able to combine her love for animals and passion for business together. Since the sale of Animal Oasis Veterinary Hospital in 2017, Andrea, Dr. Stacey and Hadley decided Colorado was where they wanted to live along with their menagerie of fur babies. In 2018, Andrea and family made the long trek to Broomfield, Colorado where they have embraced the winters with open arms and love spending as much time on the slopes as possible.
