Dr. Bridget Schuler
Chief of Staff
Dr. Schuler graduated from Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2012 and has enjoyed working with animals since she and her childhood friend attempted to "save" abandoned baby birds and lost dogs in their neighborhood park. She spend most of her life riding horses and originally planned to graduate with a degree in equine sciences. Small animal medicine became her passion in veterinary school, however, especially the field of dentistry. She loves to care for her patients as they transition from puppyhood to adulthood to senior pets, helping them lead happier, healthier lives. In her spare time, Dr. Schuler enjoys the great outdoors hiking with her dog Prima or snowboarding, and is also an avid reader. Dr. Schuler started with Banfield in 2007 as a veterinary assistant and worked for Banfield throughout vet school. In September 2015 she transferred from the Westminster location to Loveland to take the Chief of Staff role.
Katie has seven years of experience in both small and large animal veterinary hospitals. She completed her bachelor's degree in animal science and master's in practice management at Colorado State University and is also a certified veterinary assistant. She loves working with a hospital team that strives to provide the best quality care for their patients and enjoys the chance to make a difference in the lives of pets and their families. When she is not in the hospital, she enjoys skiing, hiking with her dogs, and camping. She also enjoys traveling, having been to 17 different countries with plans to visit many more!
Dr. Elizabeth Sagen
Dr. Sagen graduated from Colorado State University's College of Veterinary Medicine in 2013, and enjoys providing quality preventative care to keep pets healthy throughout their lives and strengthen the human-animal bond. She especially enjoys performing preventive and emergency surgical services. When she is not in the clinic, she can be found running on the numerous trails in the area, strengthening her cooking skills, and tending to her garden. Her two dogs, Cooper and Penny, and cat Ralph also keep her busy in her spare time.
Kim has been with Banfield since August 2013, and has recently transitioned to her role as a veterinary technician from her previous position as a CSC. She hopes to begin veterinary school in the fall of 2015, and looks forward to applying her knowledge from Banfield as a full-fledged veterinarian in the future! Her precocious kitten Avery and husband Jeff support her endeavors in school, and help her relax in her free time. When she's not in the clinic or studying, Kim enjoys hiking (as a temporary substitute for horseback riding), reading and touring the numerous Colorado microbreweries.
