Meet the Team

Liza Pfaff, DVM, PhD

Dr. Liza grew up in the Chicago area and she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Environmental and Evolutionary Biology from Dartmouth College in New Hampshire.  She earned both a Ph.D. (Clinical Sciences, Cancer Biology) and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Colorado State University.  See her full CV here.

Dr. Liza worked at Homeward Bound Animal Hospital and Homestead Animal Hospital before deciding to open her own practice.  She
 is excited to be Fear Free Certified – this is a maturation of her gentle style of medicine and she looks forward to sharing it with all of her patients and clients.​

She loves seeing patients of all shapes and sizes – from reptiles, birds, and pocket pets to cats and dogs to small ruminants, llamas and alpacas.  In her spare time, you will find her golfing, trying to tire out her crazy dog family or playing with her vinyl record collection.

Bre Certified Veterinary Technician, Lead Technician

Bre graduated from the CVT program at Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology in 2016.

Since graduation, Bre has worked at two different vet clinics. Bre has been with Critter Care Animal Hospital since day one of opening. In her time with CCAH, she has moved up to become Lead Technician.

She is Fear Free Certified to work with dogs, cats, birds, and horses.

Turtles have a special place in her heart and reptiles are her favorite species.

When she’s not working, she’s either working out or working on her tan!

Becca — Certified Veterinary Technician, Practice Manager

I graduated from Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology in 2015 and I became Fear Free Certified in 2018.

I began my CVT career in a multi-specialty hospital spending time in many different departments but found I had a particular passion for General Practice. I love building a relationship with the pets and owners and seeing how they grow and change through the years.

When I saw that CCAH was looking for a CVT, I jumped at the chance to work with a Fear Free Certified Hospital and at the opportunity to provide care for not just fur-babies, but feathered, scaled, and quilled babies too!

I spent a two-year term as V.P. on the Colorado Association of Certified Veterinary Technicians (CACVT) working to advance and improve the Veterinary Technician field.

While with CCAH, I have worked my way up to becoming Practice Manager and continue working to improve my skills and knowledge.

In my free time I enjoy knitting, acrylic painting, spending time with my family and my four chihuahua mixes.

Amelia Certified Veterinary Technician, Equipment Manager

Amelia joined the Critter Care team in March 2021. She enjoys working with all the different species and is so excited to be at a clinic that can see them all. Her journey with veterinary medicine started with a seasonal position at a wildlife rehabilitation center. She felt so much fulfillment in being able to help animals feel better. She later went on to become a Certified Veterinary Technician after studying at Bel Rea Institute of Animal Technology. Years later, Amelia is still helping animals of all sorts, both wild and companion.

When she is not at work snuggling all the pets, she is at home snuggling her own pets: three birds and two kitties. In her free time, she enjoys singing, dancing, seeing live music, being in nature, and gardening. She loves plants of all sorts and may or may not have too many house plants (is there such a thing?).

Sabrina Veterinary Technician

Sabrina was born & raised in Memphis, TN, but has called Colorado home since 2014. She earned her bachelor’s degree in organismal biology from the University of Tennessee at Martin in 2010 and spent several years researching sea urchin & avian ecology. She has been in the veterinary field since starting out part-time as a kennel tech during her undergrad years and enjoys building on her knowledge and skills whenever she can. She loves all the critters, but has a soft spot for cats, Golden retrievers, & hedgehogs. In her free time, she enjoys birding, wildlife photography, calligraphy, and generally anything nerdy. She also loves hanging out with her husband and furry family: four dogs, two cats, one hedgehog, and one nutty ferret.

Tiffany – Client Services Representative

Tiffany was born in Illinois and moved to Colorado when she was in third grade. She’s had many pets while growing up including dogs, rats, sugar gliders, and she fostered many, many kittens for DDFL as a teenager.

She started out spending just one day a week with us as a receptionist. She has since established herself into a full-time role handling all the front desk, reception responsibilities as well as uncountable other tasks throughout the hospital.

In her free time, Tiffany enjoys acrylic pour painting and creating new things on her Cricut, gaming and playing basketball with her partner.
