Originating from upstate New York, Dr. DePauw attended Cornell University for her undergraduate and veterinary degree, which she completed in 2003. After performing an internship in Atlanta, she moved to NYC where she treated the pets of the rich and famous. She then volunteered at a spay/neuter clinic in India, where she developed a passion for shelter medicine and serving the under-served.
When she returned to the United States, she worked at a humane society in Washington D.C. before the mountains drew her to Colorado. She worked at a humane society and low cost clinic on the Front Range for 7 years before recently moving to the San Juans. She loves being able to provide care for those animals who otherwise may not get it, and during her free time, she enjoys exploring the mountains on foot, bicycle, skis, or with rope and harness.
