Kelly has been working in the veterinary health field for over 28 years. Her love of animals started when she was a child on her family’s farm in rural Michigan working with her
mother, who bred and showed Bouviers and Old English Sheepdogs. Along with LOTS of dogs and cats, they also had horses, cows, ducks, geese, chickens, goats, pigs and rabbits!
Prior to coming to join the staff at Red Hill, Kelly worked as the nursing staff supervisor and triage nurse at a specialty practice in Denver.

Jeanie H., Inventory Manager & Receptionist
Hello! My name is Jeanie, and I work as a front desk receptionist and inventory manager, among other things at Red Hill Animal Health Center. The first thing that struck me about this facility was the common thread that all the employees possess of truly caring for animals. The second thing was the cleanliness and “at home” feeling you get when you walk through the door. I thought, “I could be happy working here.”
I received my Associate’s degree in Horse Husbandry at the State University of New York at Morrisville and worked at a hunter/jumper stable in Geneseo, NY for a few years. After moving to Aspen, I worked for a time at the Aspen Animal Hospital. While working also in other areas, animals have always remained a passion of mine. My husband and I have raised two boys here in the Roaring Fork Valley. We presently own a horse and two cats, and horseback riding remains my favorite thing to do. It is also a great pleasure to spend my days with all the furry friends that walk through the door at Red Hill!
Andrea B., Marketing Director & Groomer
I was born in central Wisconsin but relocated with my family to Utah because of my parent’s love of the mountains and skiing, which of course they passed on to me! I grew up ski racing and raced through college. After graduating with a Bachelor’s in Anthropology and German, I moved to Munich, Germany. In Germany, I taught English, participated in big mountain competitions and played soccer for an Irish football club.
After five years in Munich, I moved to Colorado to be closer to family, my three horses, and to go back to school. I graduated in the spring of 2014 from Colorado Mountain College with a Bachelor’s in business administration.
In my free time, I enjoy horseback riding, camping, hiking and spending time with family! I am really excited to be part of the Red Hill team because I really enjoy being around animals!
Sage G., Technician Assistant
Sage started at Red Hill as a dog walker back in 2008 and continues to work a technician assistant in the hospital. She is very grateful to work with a team that feels more like a community & co-workers who look out for each other like family! Sage also loves being able to work with & care for animals every day!
Over the years, Sage has become interested in pet grooming. She has had the opportunity to work for and learn from several groomers in the area. Sage has a soft spot for senior pets and has learned special techniques to help groom pets who are no longer able to complete traditional grooming. In addition to grooming, Sage has also studied dog training with an emphasis on dog psychology. Her goal is to help provide people with a better understanding of their dogs so they can live in harmony with their furry family!
Sage grew up here in the Roaring Fork Valley and has loved living here for over 25 years. She has always been a great lover of animals! Sage has three dogs at home: Honey, who is over 15 years old and Sages pride and joy. Sugar is five years young & a ball of energy and Duke, a pretty big pup with lots of love to give. When she is not taking care of critters, Sage is dancing! She is studying classical ballet & modern dance.
Jed F, Boarding Host
Jed first moved to the Roaring Fork Valley as a Colorado Rocky Mountain School student! After
finishing school, Jed continued his passion for life in the mountains with his four legged
counterparts between Montana, Washington, California, and Colorado.
He recently relocated with family to Carbondale after almost 8 years working in Gunnison as a
special education teacher. His wife, Kristen and their two children are excited to be back in the
area to start a new adventure. Jed has always thought of opening this own boarding facility and
is excited to join the Red Hill boarding staff to take a step towards that dream!
When Jed isn’t taking care of our beloved furry friends, he has an enormous passion for
preparing tasty meals, listening to music, hiking, camping, skiing, bicycling and spending time
with his family.
Julia T., Kennel Manager & Certified Veterinary Technician
Hi, my name is Julia. I am from Michigan where I grew up working with my mom in a local shelter and fell in love with vet med. I graduated from Oakland University with my bachelors in biology in 2019. While attending school I spent my summers and Christmas breaks working in Keystone with my dad guiding horseback trail rides and driving teams of draft horses. I fell in love with Colorado and decided to apply to the vet tech program at CMC. I moved to the valley fall of 2019 and started working in the kennel while completing my schooling. In 2021 I graduated the program and became a CVT. I am so excited to be part of the hospital team and utilize my technician skills while still caring for some of the best dogs and cats that come through the kennel. It really is the best of both worlds!
When not working at Red Hill you can probably find me in Frisco driving teams of draft mules. I also love to hike with my sweet lab Warrior and my crazy cat Sushi. We frequently hike until we find a good spot to hang a hammock while we sunbathe and read.
