Veterinary Tech School: Bel-Rea
My name is Hollie. I am a recent graduate from Bel-Rea Institute. I have three dogs and a cat. My fuzzy kiddos are my family. I am originally from a small town in Western New York, but I have been in Denver for the past 12 years. I am a country girl at heart that lives in the city. Hiking and spending time with my boys "dogs" is my favorite thing to do. Being around animals daily is what keeps me going, they are always there to make your day better no matter what.
