Dr. Ashlyn Spring
Ashlyn was born and raised in Durham, North Carolina. As an undergrad at Elon University, she received her B.S. in biology. From a young age, Ashlyn knew that she wanted to work with animals. She grew up spending much of her time volunteering at animal shelters, the Duke Lemur Center, and a local big cat sanctuary. It wasn’t until college, when she began working as a vet technician, that she discovered her true passion for veterinary medicine. After graduating from Elon, Ashlyn moved to Colorado where she joined the The Animal Doctor team as a tech for two years. She then left to attend veterinary school at the University of Illinois. Upon receiving her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, Ashlyn was drawn back to Colorado by her love of hiking, skiing, camping, and the amazing friends she had made through The Animal Doctor. Ashlyn now lives in Denver with her two dogs, Lennon and Charlie, and her three-legged cat, Hiccup. She spends her days-off outside, whether it’s hiking with her pups, picnicking in a local park, or enjoying a beer at a local brewery.
