A Colorado native, Tina was born and raised in Boulder. She grew up with all kinds of household pets, including dogs, cats, rabbits and rats! You could say Tina is a softball expert! She attended Colorado State University on a softball scholarship, and graduated with her degree in psychology. After college, she coached division 2 and high school softball. She then followed her passion for animal care to Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology. Tina joined the Mountain Ridge team in 2019 and has been our Lead CVT since 2021. When she’s not helping furry friends at Mountain Ridge, Tina enjoys spending time with her two kids and their two rescue Boston Terriers Abby & Bailey.
