Our Team


Hi, I’m Sarah. I am attending Colorado Preparatory Academy as well as CSU Global. I grew up on a small farm outside of Greeley, Colorado. Naturally, that is where my love for animals first began. As a kid, there wasn’t much you could do to get me off my horse’s back and even when you could, you were bound to find me hanging out with some form of critter whether that be my dogs, cats, or even a few chickens if no one else was around!

Today, things still haven’t changed! I am frequently hanging out or working with my horses. I have a dog named Sage who is the sweetest thing and a cat named Felix who is a crazy ball of fur! I plan on becoming a veterinarian one day, and in the meantime, I am here to learn as much as I can. Truthfully, I hope there is never a day where I don’t have an animal around.


I am a Colorado native and graduated from Greeley West High school in 2017. After graduation, I attended North Eastern junior college for a year and returned home to start my path as a veterinary technician. I attended Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology and earned my Associate of Applied Science Degree. I was then allowed to sit for the state credential testing. I officially became certified in April of 2021. I enjoy every aspect of working at a general practice.

When I am not at work you can find me outside enjoying activities, doing crafts, or spending time with my wonderful family. I have two adorable boxers that are my life and of course, I am always looking to add more to our silly bunch.


I grew up in a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri. My love for animals started because we went to my grandma’s farm every summer. I used to be a professional singer and my husband and I were the Worship Leaders at our biker church in Missouri.

I am married to my husband, Mark, of 31 years. We have one daughter together. Her name is Jenna Sue and she is almost 27 years old, talented, and beautiful. She also has epilepsy, which we are strong advocates for. She also works at a Veterinarian Clinic in Arvada, Colorado. We decided to move here almost 3 years ago to be close to kids and grandkids.

Mark had 2 children from a previous marriage. Kindra, who has given us 5 beautiful grandkids, 1 step-grandson, and 3 beautiful adopted daughters. Mark also had a son, Cayle, who passed away from alcohol poisoning at 21 years old, which we are strong advocates for alcohol poisoning awareness.

I’ve worked with animals and in 2 veterinarian clinics since 1991. I learned to groom dogs and did that professionally for many years.

Currently, we own 2 dogs, Roxie and Cuddles; 2 cats, Ringo and Luna. We foster our daughter’s bearded dragon named Baby and have 1 chicken named Rahab.

I have been working for Dr. Gabel for almost 2 years. It has been such a blessing to be part of her staff. I have learned so much and I have learned to love the clients and their pets with a passion! I look forward to helping Dr. Gabel in her practice and helping take care of animals for a very long time.


I am a Colorado native, I am currently studying to be a vet assistant. I have a 3-year-old German Shepherd Husky mix named Araya who is my whole world along with my three kittens, Theo, Jhett, and Sophie who I absolutely adore. My four fur babies definitely keep me on my toes. I have always enjoyed helping out where needed and being around animals and knew I wanted to advance my career working in the vet world. When I am not working I am spending time hunting with my amazing husband, going to country concerts, motocross races, and spending time with my rambunctious loving family.


Hello, my name is Teya, I am one of the receptionists here at Front Porch Animal Clinic. My love for animals started when I got my first job at The Humane Society as an animal care technician. While working at the humane society I adopted two lab retriever mixes named Harvey and Hadley.

When I am not at work you can find me spending time with my son and family. I love to be outdoors and I love going to concerts. I am very blessed to work for Front Porch Animal Clinic and enjoy every minute of my job!
