Dr. Lupole received her Masters of Science and Veterinary degree from Colorado State University. At graduation, she was awarded the "Gentle Doctor Award'. Her professional interests include internal medicine, surgery, rehabilitation, and physical medicine. She is certified in Medical Acupuncture for small and large animals and enjoys incorporating alternative therapies for her patients. In her free time, Dr. Lupole enjoys spending time with her husband, CJ, and their four dogs (Abby, Molly, Stanley, and Oswald).

We hope you come in to meet her soon!
