  • Merideth

    Dr. Early is not only native to Colorado, but also a life-long Weld County resident.  She has long admired the care of the veterinarians and staff from Sheep Draw and is very excited to be a part of the team. After graduating from Rocky Mountain High School, Dr. Early planned to go to college and eventually become a human physician.  Prior to college, she took some time away to decide what she wanted to be when she grew up.

    Some of that time she spent working at the humane society, at that time known as the Northern Colorado Animal League, and then obtained a job as a veterinary technician.  It was during that time that she realized how much she loved working with animals and that veterinary medicine offered more challenge, excitement, and diversity so she decided to become a veterinarian.

    Dr. Early returned to school at CSU and obtained a degree in microbiology with a minor in bio-medical science.  While in school, she also worked in an immunology lab.  She graduated summa cum laude and then continued her education of CSU for another four years before obtaining the degree of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.  As a veterinarian, Dr. Early has a special interest in dentistry, surgery, and exotic pets.  She also has a passion for parasitology and immune diseases. 

    Dr. Early currently resides in Johnstown where she recently moved with her new husband.  Together they have 4 human children and 1 cat, Nermal.  They are currently searching for the perfect dog to join their family.  Her family loves the Colorado outdoors, museums, and parks.

    I was born in Mount Holly, New Jersey.  My mom and dad moved us to Colorado when I was 13. They were on their way to Oregon when the transmission went out in the family van and we ended up staying in Greeley.  I’ve been in Greeley ever since.  I graduated from Greeley Central High School, and started my working career as a secretary at several offices.  Then I worked at North Colorado Medical Center as a medical transcriptionist.  I went back to school to get a degree in biology at University of Northern Colorado and graduated in 1997.  It took me three tries to get into CSU’s veterinary program, but I finally graduated in 2003.  I have two grown children and a husband who has been a truck driver for 30 years.  My pets have all been obtained through my work in vet med.  There are three dogs and one cat.  I love veterinary medicine and am happy to be back working in Greeley after several years away.

  • Tara

    I was born and raised in Upstate New York.  Growing up I grew a love for all animals.  I attended culinary school with a concentration in baking and pastry.  Shortly after graduating I moved to Vermont to pursue my dreams in the Culinary field. It was then I adopted my first dog Archie and he changed everything!  I left my culinary job and started work in boarding facilities.  It wasn’t long after I went back to school and received a certificate for dog grooming.  I’ve been grooming for many years and recently made the switch into the veterinary care side of things.  I moved to Colorado in 2015 with my little man Archie, crazy bulldog Lola, and amazing boyfriend Jordan.  We have added Hank, a Great Dane, to our fur family.  I am thrilled to be a part of the Sheep Draw team and can’t wait to meet your fur babies!

  • Jennifer
    Veterinarian Technician

    Hi I’m Jennifer! I’m originally from California, recently moved to Windsor along with my boyfriend Bryce and our fur babies, my 4 yr old brat Babooshka who is clearly not amused by how many pictures I take with her! Our 4 yr old German Shepard/Husky mix Ace which is always full of energy and like any other boy momma I think he’s the most handsome boy ever, and last but not least our 14yr old white kitty Princess!

    Being able to help pets has always been a dream since I can remember and to be able to say that I’ve been in the veterinary field for over 8 years, from small private practices to corporate and my favorite of all time a specialty hospital in which I was able to assist in radioactive treatments for cats with Hyperthyroidism and even do MRI, CT Scans and other nuclear medicine, all the hard work and dedication to each pet has definitely made me feel proud of myself for never once giving up on any of them, and I will always be grateful for the path that I have chosen and happy to have followed my childhood dream!

    OMG I almost forgot about Ricardo!! Ricky is our leopard gecko, can’t forget about the reptiles!!
