Certified Veterinary Technicians
Kim Froman, RVT
Kim moved to Steamboat from Claremore, Oklahoma and joined the PKC team in November 2018. She has 14 years of experience in the veterinary field. She became a registered technician in 2005 and has worked as a veterinary assistant, a veterinary technician, a hospital manager and an adjunct instructor. She values striving for excellence, taking pride in her work, upholding a high standard of veterinary medicine, and client education for their pet’s best care. Her strengths include strong technical skills, leadership, teaching and training among others.
Kim lives here with her husband, twin 3rd-graders (a boy and a girl), a 13-year-old Shih-Tzu mix named Makana, and a 3-year-old Hound mix named Gwen. She and her family enjoy spending time together, weekend adventures, soccer games, and nature walks. They’re a close-knit group, and value their time together; whether work or play.
We enjoy drawing from Kim’s experience and we are always happy to learn from her and what she brings to the team.
Jamie Simpson, CVT
Jamie was born and raised in Hayden. Her love of animals began at an early age and she was destined to become a certified veterinary technician. Jamie is one of our long-term technicians, having been with Pet Kare Clinic for over ten years. She is skilled at literally everything she does and manages to do it with a quiet and gentle touch. She is known as the “IV catheter queen” because we’ve never seen her fail to get one in. Her professional interests are in dentistry and surgery and she has many years of experience in both. Jamie’s favorite part of working at Pet Kare is being surrounded by such loving and compassionate people who are always willing to go the extra mile. We appreciate that she is one of those people as well!Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family. Home life involves her two young children, her husband Scott, 2 Italian greyhounds, 4 kitties, 2 bunnies, 2 chinchillas, a cockatiel, and chickens! Jamie also enjoys sewing, beading, and gardening.
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 Tulsa, Oklahoma. 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 past time 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.
Lyta Foulk has been volunteering in various animal hospitals since she was 12 years old. She officially joined the Pet Kare Team fall of 2016 as a high school intern and then was trained as a technician after graduation. She is valued for her dependability, her willingness to jump in and help out, and her ability to pick up new skills so quickly.
Lyta grew up in Steamboat Springs and spends her days outside of the clinic backpacking with her 4 year old Australian Shepherd and skiing. She is even a member of the United States Telemark ski team and has won several National Championships in Telemark Racing. She is currently working at Pet Kare while also going to school to get her undergraduate degree. She hopes to continue onto vet school once she is finished with her degree. Wish her luck!!
