Janel Moore – Head Receptionist
In her free time (hah!), Janel enjoys hot springing and camping with her boyfriend Brian, writing poetry, knitting, yoga, meditation, sewing, lap-swimming, TUBING, anything art-related of any sort, and cross-country skiing. At home in Oak Creek, she lives with her 2 border collies Trixie and Palmer, and her older kitty, Simba. Janel is a big health-food junkie (mostly vegetarian since 1995) and Neil Young junkie.
Ineke is originally from the Netherlands, was educated at the School of Life, and has traveled extensively. Steamboat Springs became her home in 1986, where she lives with her husband, Dave, as well as 2 dogs (Sam and Millie) , one great mouser named Kat, horses, cows, and a donkey. Her passions in life are family and friends, travel, horseback riding, camping and, of course, animals.
“I am a member of many self-help groups, but I am not a licensed therapist! No, really, went to college for graphic design, but I don’t use my degree. I am a professional dog nanny. I used to own my own pet sitting business, but now I just work for one family and for Pet Kare Clinic”.
Sarah’s hobbies include: FISHING, horseback riding, FISHING, walking her wonderful hound dogs Ida Mae and Minnie Mae, FISHING, skiing, FISHING, travelling to warm & sunny beach places…and…FISHING. She is also a volunteer for the Marine Mammal Conservancy and has helped pilot whales and dolphins that have suffered from mass stranding. She was, in fact, filmed by Miami News while helping a staff vet with a pilot whale. Sara is also a self-quoted ‘bird-nerd’ and was in a Jacques Cousteau film with Deluga whales at the age of 6 years old.
A self-proclaimed “cat person”, Megan moved to the high country from Delaware in 2000 and never looked back. She lives in Steamboat II with her husband, two boys, her cat Butters, and her chiweenie (Chihuahua/Daschund mix), Radder. Megan loves the summer and spends most of her time mountain biking, camping and spending time with her boys. Her cat is locally famous for being one of Steamboat’s only “camping cats”. She also enjoys downhill, cross-country, and skate skiing.
Sharon joined the Pet Kare front desk staff in August of 2016. She moved to Steamboat Springs in June and is thrilled to be back in Colorado after a three year stint in Rock Springs, WY.
Sharon is an Air Force brat, but claims Ohio as her home state. She has been a Science and Math educator for more than 20 years and is happy to be learning more about medical science here in the clinic. She enjoys hiking, camping, playing silly games and self-referencing in the third person. Look for her, her husband and Labradork at Rita Valentine park on almost any day of the week.
Rosie moved to Steamboat from Atlanta, GA in March of 2014, six months after marrying her husband who has lived in Steamboat for 25 years. She began working at Pet Kare 2 years later as a part-time receptionist.
She has had a love of animals since she was a little girl. Vet school seemed like an impossiblility because of the expense so she elected to go to Animal Health Technical School, a 3-year program at both Harcum College in Bryn Mawr and the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. She graduated in 1983 and has been in the animal health industry every since. She has been a vet tech, a lab tech mixing children’s vaccines, and an animal hopital manager, among other things.
Rosie has a combined family, moving here with her 2 cats to live with her husband and his cat. Since then, they have been adopted by another frisky feline as well. Rosie’s passion has been wildlife rehab which she started shortly after graduating college. She looks forward to continuing to do wildlife rehab here in Colorado.
Some of her hobbies include playing ultimate Frisbee, disc golf, mountain biking, skiing, hiking and sailing. Rosie’s extensive experience in the veterinary field and her calm demanor make her an excellent addition to the Pet Kare Team!
Holly joined the Pet Kare team shortly after moving to Steamboat in August 2015. She had been working in the veterinary field for 5 years, mostly as a receptionist, where she was raised in Arkansas. She was so immediately proficient and knowledgeable at our front desk that she became cross-trained as a vet tech shortly thereafter.
Outside of work, Holly spends all of her time with her vivacious 4-year-old little girl. They enjoy swimming, watching movies, and going to the park. When she gets the chance, Holly’s favorite pasttime is relaxing. She also enjoys skiing.
Whether charming clients with her bubbly personality at the front desk or running the show with fiery spirit in the back, she has become an indispensable member of our team.
