Nicole was born and raised in Morrison, Colorado. After High School, she worked for a few jobs before landing at a veterinary clinic/boarding/grooming facility working as a CSR. She loved it so much; she was there for almost 21 years. While there, she also became an Assistant Kennel Manager and eventually became an Office Manager. She was very blessed to have worked beside her little sister for those full 21 years – they made an amazing team and still do to this day.
She grew up with dogs, a cat, a few pocket pets, a lizard, and two horses. She has always had a love for animals. After working at the veterinary clinic for a couple of months as a CSR, she confirmed with herself that she was meant to work with animals because of the amazing relationships she was building with the animals and their families, and how much that bond meant to her. She realized animals play such an important role in human lives. They provide us with so much in so many ways and ask for so little in return – she wanted to give back by helping to educate their owners on how the medical staff could provide good medicine to their four-legged family members to help them live their best, healthy lives and taking care of them while their families were away.
Given a few changes with the veterinary clinic she previously worked for, she decided she needed a change. With the help and encouragement of a few amazing people, she found Inspire Animal Hospital. She was a little apprehensive about taking the job at Inspire Animal Hospital only because she had been with the previous veterinary clinic for so long, she didn’t know anything else. However, by the end of her first week, she knew she had made the right decision. Josh and Dr. Jamie Saliman are wonderful people to work for – their level of knowledge and compassion for the animals, their owners, and the staff are astounding.
Nicole lives in Littleton with her husband, crazy but very loving Labrador, Truex, and her one cuddly cat, Roush. She and her husband enjoy spending time with their pets, their families, ATVing, boating, hiking, and kayaking. They also both share a love for wildlife – one of their favorite places to go is Yellowstone. Nicole is very excited to be a part of the team of Inspire Animal Hospital.
