    Princess Muffy

    Muffy, a.k.a. the Princess of Park Hill, is a Denver native and has been in the vet industry since 2001. Muffy is the de-stress coordinator at VCA Park Hill and demands daily meetings with each employee. Her extensive education has been predominantly acquired in the doctor's office. Her expertise in radiology is her strongest contribution to the clinic, which is why she spends much of her time sleeping in radiology and helping interpret films. Her other veterinary experience includes shedding on doctor's chairs. Outside of veterinary activities, she enjoys breakfast and dinner, vomiting on the only carpeted areas of the hospital, feline modeling, and sun bathing.
