Get to Know Dr. Christin
January 17th, 2017 by Cherished Companions Animal Clinic
She’s one of our Castle Rock veterinarians
We’ve given you a closer look at several of our Castle Rock veterinarians in recent posts.
This week we’d love to help you get to know Dr. Christin.
If Dr. Christin looks familiar, it’s because she probably is...
Dr. Christin got her start at Cherished Companions a number of years ago as a veterinary technician.
She always knew she wanted to be a veterinarian.
Working with local pet families at Cherished Companions confirmed that for her.
“I wanted to be a veterinarian for as long as I can remember,” she shares.
“When I was young, our neighbors had a dog, and I’d always be over there or I’d have their dog over to our house. My parents had to get a puppy just to keep me home!”
Dr. Christin earned her veterinary medicine degree at Colorado State University — ranked one of the top three veterinary schools in the U.S. in 2015.
She rejoined our Cherished Companions team a year and a half ago as one of our veterinarians.
What to expect from Dr. Christin
One of the things Dr. Christin loves about Cherished Companions is being able to tailor her treatment to each individual patient.
“I like that we’re a small clinic that believes in personalized care,” she says.
As Dr. Christin explains, at many larger veterinary practices, you’re stuck following default procedures, which can get expensive or may not be addressing the actual issues at hand.
“Every case is so different. No animal has read the textbook, and you have to put the puzzle pieces together.”
To help your dog or cat feel comfortable, she loves to start each visit with cuddle time and lots of scratches.
It’s her goal to take her time and work with you and your pet to feel more at ease and find the best solution.

Outside of work…
Dr. Christin has two cats and a golden retriever at home.
“Golden retrievers are my weakness,” she shares. “They love everyone and everything. They’re just so happy.”
You may see Dr. Christin out on the running trails around Castle Rock, Monument, Denver and Colorado Springs.
She’s run the Disney Marathon in Florida three times.
Her dog, Mesa, is her running buddy.
Dr. Christin’s parents were in the Air Force, so she moved around a lot when she was growing up.
Over the course of her life, she’s lived in Virginia, Alabama, Maryland, Illinois, Montana, New Hampshire and yes, Colorado.
See what Dr. Christin had to say about herself.
