Registered Veterinary Technician

Somer is a certified veterinary technician who grew up in East-Central North Dakota. As a child she was an avid western rider, covering the prairies of North Dakota and mountains of Southeastern Arizona, doing ranch work, and competing in team sorting and penning events.

She obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Wildlife Biology in 2007 and later expanded her skill set as she went on to obtain an Associate of Science degree in Veterinary Technology from Colorado Mountain College in 2011.

She’s worked as a surgery, critical care, and lameness/sport horse technician for Wisconsin Equine Hospital in Oconomowoc, WI, and Legacy Equine Centre in Tulsa, OK.

Somer recently moved back to the Roaring Fork Valley in 2017 to join the newly established Roaring Fork Equine Medical Center. She is excited to be able to provide excellent care for the region’s horses.

When not at work, Somer enjoys spending time with her two toy Australian shepherds and any outdoor activity that has her exploring her backyard in the mountains of Colorado.
