Dr Judy received her formal education at Colorado State University, including a bachelor’s degree in Zoology in 1984, and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1988. Following graduation, she started her career in a rural, mixed-animal practice in Pocatello, ID. She then relocated to the Salt Lake City, UT area before returning to Denver, CO in 2001. She purchased the Belleview Animal clinic in Englewood in 2003, which she transitioned from a conventional practice to one with a strong holistic foundation. She sold this practice in 2015 in order to pursue a new direction in her professional path.
She initially took a break from practice and learned the value of self-care in supporting her future endeavors. Her decision to specialize in caring for cancer patients stems from the dramatic increase she has seen in cancer cases, both in her pet patients, and in the people in her life. She is wholly committed to making a contribution that minimizes the prevalence of this devastating disease.
Using the knowledge gained in her 30+ years of practicing, Dr Judy has developed a unique whole-body approach to both treating and preventing cancer. She looks at the whole animal, and supports the natural healing ability of the body with proper nutrition, detoxification, and eliminating the underlying causes of disease. She then uses tools such as ozone, herbs, cbd, essential oils, and whole food supplements to optimize the health of the body and help it to eliminate the disease
She does not believe in a magic-bullet approach, whether it is using an herb or a conventional pharmaceutical. The body is a biological system and needs to be supported in many different aspects. Her wellness plans begin helping at a young age, addressing nutrition and reducing the use of vaccines and pharmaceuticals to help pets get off to a great start with a strong immune system.
In her personal time, she has found that spending time in nature is both inspiring and rejuvenating. She loves to spend time hiking, snowshoeing, and camping with her husband Chris. At home she enjoys reading, learning, meditating, practicing yoga and Qigong.
Her personal pets and teachers are Wylie and C-Jay, two Chihuahuas who are always in her shadow.
