She dedicated her time there helping the abandoned, abused and unwanted pets to find new and forever homes. In 2011, she moved to Denver to attend the Bel-Rea Institute. After graduating in 2014, Katy started her career working in the Dentistry Department at VCA Alameda East. She is excited to take on a new position at Tall Grass Animal Hospital with Dr. Fordham and make it her new home. In her spare time, Katy enjoys spending time with her family; husband, Sam, and their two young children, Bodhi and Temperance. They enjoy hiking, kayaking, horseback riding and spending time at their local Buddhist temple. They have four pets, two arabian/appaloosa mares named Makita Jo and Nesse, a German Shepherd/Husky mix named Mindy and a cat named Mogo Gi Pan.
Courtney Olsen, CVT
Courtney’s love and passion from animals began as a child when she would go to work with her uncle who is a veterinarian. She began her career volunteering with various shelters and zoos around Colorado and even an elephant rehab in Thailand. She is a graduate from Bel Rea Institute with an Associates in Science, in 2015. After graduation she than went to work in the dentistry department at VCA Alameda East Veterinary Hospital. When she is not working she spends her free time hiking, traveling, dabbling in photography and trying new restaurants! Her forever baby is a blue heeler mix named Maya, whom she adopted in 2014.
Katy was always to be found with the pets when she was a little girl, no matter who’s house she was at. Her passion for dogs and cats ventured on to snakes, rats, and then horses. She eventually went on to win National Champion in her division in horse jumping when she was 15 years old. Her love for horses also turned into a love for giant breed dogs. Katy first met Dr. Matt Fordham as his client with her first Great Dane in 2009. After graduating from Bel-Rea Institute with an Associate’s Degree in Animal Science in 2011, she started working for him as a technician. She officially joined the Tall Grass Family in September of 2017. Katy’s favorite thing to do is spend time with her husband and three kids whether that be camping, going to car races/shows, or just watching a movie at home in their pajamas!
