Dr. Karbs was born and raised in Wyoming, where she developed a love for animals. She knew she either wanted to be a veterinarian or a jockey when she grew up. She earned her undergraduate degree in microbiology at CSU in 2005 and continued into veterinary school at CSU graduating in 2009. Needing a change in scenery and a break from the snow, she moved to Mesa, Arizona to practice for almost 8 years. She is now back in Colorado and loving the western slope. Dr. Karbs has been with Banfield for the past 6 years. She has 3 dogs, 2 cats, and a wonderful husband and daughter. In her free time, Dr. Karbs loves hiking, running, reading, and hanging out with her family.
