Our Staff


Jill is our head technician

Jill, VT:

Jill is our head technician, chief ordering officer and general know-it-all. She grew up in Durango on the banks of the Animas River. She began working at BBVC in 1994, a short six months after the clinic opened. Jill enjoys canine agility, hiking, recreating at Lake Powell and about anything outdoors. She has A BUNCH of border collies. Too many to name, really. And as if she doesn't have enough, she also fosters for Western Border Collie Rescue.  


Becky, RVT:  

Becky joined BBVC as a registered veterinary technician (RVT) in 2020 and brought with her 20+ years of experience in the field. Becky moved to the Durango area from Northern California where she was working as a vet tech. Shortly after moving here, she took a hiatus from the vet world, obtained an accounting degree and worked at Easy Care Inc. After spending 7 years behind a desk, she decided it just wasn’t the right fit and came running back to play with the puppies and kittens. She’s known for her exceptional organizational skills, and if she’s left alone for the day, she will reorganize every cabinet space in the clinic. Becky enjoys all things outdoors, and is a very talented self-taught crochet artist.  Becky lives with her dog Indy, and cats, Bruce, Campbell, and Archi. 



Morgan is a veterinary assistant and has begun training to become a certified vet tech. She’s well known in the Durango dog world from her longtime work with Willow Tree Kennels and The Gentle Canine. She is a wonderfully talented Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT/KA),  and is currently working on her cat-whispering skills. Morgan is also very good at coming up with jingles to sing about every staff member so if you hear her voice echoing from the exam room, that’s probably why. In her free time, she loves playing volleyball and running. She lives with her two dogs  Nephy Noodlehead and Gussy Wussy Baby Boy. 



Hannah is a veterinary assistant and is currently attending San Juan College to become a licensed technician. She grew up in Chicago and graduated from Colorado College in 2014. Hannah is in love with the mountains and spent several years as a mountain guide before returning to school. Hannah lives with her husband Chris, two dogs Porg and Artoo, her perfect one-eyed kitten Rae Mei, and 9 chickens. She is an avid rookie musher and guides sled dog tours with the Durango Dog Ranch on her days off. In her free time, she’s usually trying to train her high-drive herding dogs to be upstanding citizens or dreaming about running the Iditarod someday.



Patty considers herself a local of Durango since residing here permanently in 1996.  Born and raised in Phoenix, AZ and serving in the US Army for 6 years provided an opportunity to travel in the US and abroad.  Patty received a B.S. from Maryland University and worked previously with State Farm Insurance for 15 years, then with our local La Plata County Humane Society for 3 years before joining the fantastic team of Baker's Bridge Veterinary Clinic in 2007.  She has 2 children, 1 goofy labrador named Cooper and a 3-legged Mexican street dog named Henry.  She enjoys traveling, biking, skiing, and just about anything to do with being outdoors!

Olivia is a receptionist and has begun training to become a vet tech. She’s known in Durango for the work she's done with various community based non-profit organizations. She's delighted to be at Baker's Bridge working with her favorite community members - everyone's pets! In her free time, she loves participating in all of her favorite outdoor hobbies with her dog. She lives with her perfect pup Max, a sweet, floofy and goofy Pyrenees Mix.



Grace was a talented receptionist and has moved on to bigger and better things and is currently in vet school at Ross University. She occasionally joins us on her school breaks to continue to gain experience and hang out with the squad. She graduated from Fort Lewis College in 2019 with a degree in cell and molecular biology and a minor in forensic anthropology. She aspires to practice naturopathic animal medicine and we hope some day she will come back and join us as a doctor. Grace lives with her cat Soy Sauce and is in search of a cute little cuddly under 8lb chihuahua to join her pack. She enjoys yoga, hiking, skiing, and spending as much time with animals as she can.
