Kelly Cuttitta, Certified Veterinary Technician, Practice Manager

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.  She is married to Dr. James Ziegler and has a son, Cole, who is an avid skier, and lover of all extreme outdoor activities.  Their favorite pastimes are camping, hiking, fishing and exploring the great outdoors.


Kaysie T., Certified Veterinary Technician

Kaysie grew up in Wisconsin, but moved to Colorado in 2010 to work at a veterinarians that inspired her to attend veterinary technician school.  Later that year, she began attending the highly esteemed Vet Tech  program at Colorado Mountain College. She graduated in 2012, and has been at Red Hill since April of 2013. Kaysie enjoys riding horses, camping, hiking, and basically anything that has to do with the outdoors. She and her husband Vicente live in Redstone with their 2 dogs, Layla and Ruger, 2 mules, Sugar and Tommy, and a horse named Tara. Animals have always been a big part of her life and it is a privilege to be able to work with them!

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!

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.

Sarah R., Certified Veterinary Technician 


Sarah was born and raised in Louisville, KY and made her way to the beautiful mountains of Colorado in 2015 to attend the Veterinary Technician program at CMC’s Spring Valley Campus.
Sarah did her veterinary technician externship here at Red Hill and was lucky enough to stick around as a full time employee after graduation.
In her free time, Sarah likes hiking with her border collie mix, Birdie and binging true-crime documentaries with her cat, Chicken.

Hi my name's Ellie and as a animal lover it's a pleasure to work with Red Hill. I have two cats Taco and Marmalade and a hamster named cream. In my free time I read, crochet and play lots of animal crossing. I look forward to meeting you.

Amelia T., Technician Assistant     


Amelia is from the great state of Minnesota where she grew up with two cats and a dog. Amelia left Minnesota to attend the University of Denver and graduated with a degree in Environmental Science and Psychology in the spring of 2022. She was lucky enough to have an aunt and uncle who live here in   to explore that interest! When she isn’t working, she is skiing, running, or fishing.


Delores B., Technician Assistant

Growing up, I lived on a ranch in Silt, CO and have learned how to work with all kinds of critters. It has built my passion being able to work with animals my whole life, and given me the ability to love them and have the compassion needed to work in the veterinary world. I aspire to become a veterinarian, and am currently enrolled in courses to obtain my bachelor’s degree! 

I have two children, ages 8 and 2, and believe that my animals are just as much family as my kids are. We have two dogs, an English Bulldog named Monty, and a pug, named Minnie. When we’re not our working with the cows or horses, we out for a walk together, or we’re playing board games, or just enjoying quality time. 


Chad G., Kennel Host

"Hi, I'm Chad Griffin and I am a kennel host at Red Hill. I just started a couple months ago here and am having so much fun. But I have known about Red Hill before as they helped me in putting to rest my favorite "go-through-life" pal, my almost 15-year old pup, Sid, a couple years back. And though I am unable to have a new pup(s) where I live currently, being around all of the different dogs and cats here at Red Hill on a daily basis has helped fill that void rather sufficiently. Along with the work here, I am also a brewer in the valley and have been for a couple years. I've lived in the beautiful Roaring Fork Valley for almost 5 years now, coming from the Chicago area (Go Cubs!). My time away from work is spent watching baseball, snowboarding, camping, hiking, rafting and all of the fun things to do in the valley. Cheers!"
