Dr. Vernon joined the staff in 2011, and in 2020 became the owner of the practice. After graduating from veterinary school at Western University, she completed an internship in equine practice at Southwest Equine Medical and Surgical Center in Scottsdale, AZ. In addition to her DVM, Dr. Vernon holds a bachelors degree in Equine Science from Colorado State University. Although she is a horse girl at heart, Dr. Vernon is passionate about all aspects of mixed practice. She has completed specialized training in small animal orthopedic surgery, large and small animal ultrasound, equine lameness, surgery, and dentistry, among many other interests. Additionally, she serves our community as the President of the Cheyenne Animal Shelter, and is an active member of the AVMA and AAEP. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family, competing with her cutting horses, and working with her 2 dogs in agility and stock work. On top of this, she serves us as the WORLDS BEST PIE MAKER!
