Katie Vella - Hospital Manager


Hey, everyone! I have had the privilege of working at Faithful Friends Animal Hospital since 2016.

I started out as an extern after going to school for my veterinary technician degree. Immediately, I fell in love with the clinic and what it stands for, and have been here ever since! I now hold the position of Practice Lead and have the opportunity to work with the best veterinary team in Colorado Springs (maybe I am slightly biased).

My husband and I are originally from a small town in Southeastern Michigan. After several years of living in Washington state (love you, Seattle!), we moved here to Colorado which we now call our home. We live here with our three dogs (Mistake, Ireland, and Henna) and two cats (Marilyn and Si) who always keep life interesting! My favorite things in life include coffee, gardening, exploring the outdoors, having my nose stuck in a book, and my early morning meditations.

I am very proud to work at a practice that ensures such a high standard of care. I am truly grateful to be able to work with our lovely patients, our wonderful clientele, and our amazing staff. Here is a quote I try to live by from one of my favorite authors, Sylvia Plath: "Remember, remember, this is now, and now, and now. Live it, feel it, cling to it. I want to become acutely aware of all I've taken for granted."
