Dr. Leigh Jason was born and raised in the Hudson Valley of New York State. She grew up around animals – numerous dogs, cats, horses, squirrels, birds and reptiles have felt her love and care from the time of her youth until today.
Leigh graduated from the University of Richmond in 2005 with majors in Biology and Philosophy. An active member of Pony Club and Captain of the Richmond Equestrian Team, she went on after college to work as a veterinary technician at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky. Intending to be an equine veterinarian, Leigh received her DVM in 2012 from Ross University.
Dr. Jason worked at a busy mixed animal practice in New York, where she developed a love for small animal surgery and a passion for educating clients about the care of their pets, leading to her decision to convert to small animal practice. Feeling a sense of adventure, she relocated out West a few years ago – first to Arizona, and now to magnificent Colorado! She is excited to be here, and is ready to explore everything Denver and the surrounding mountains have to offer.
Considering herself equally a dog-person and cat-person, Leigh shares her house with a dog and a cat, Toby and Bart. Outside of work, Leigh enjoys playing polo, nature photography, and she hopes to take up skiing in the beautiful Rockies!
