Our Veterinarians

Dr. Susan Ornitz, Veterinarian

Dr Susan Ornitz was raised in Kentucky and Tennessee. She started her undergraduate work at Western Kentucky University, but transferred to Colorado State University to finish up and apply to veterinary school. After graduating from Colorado State University with her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 2007 she moved to western North Carolina to work in a small mountain town for four years. Missing Colorado too much, she moved back in 2011. Feeling like something was missing in her practice, she attended CSU’s Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians course and then Options for Animal’s Animal Chiropractic course. Dr Ornitz works at the Nederland Veterinary Hospital full time. She lives at 8700 feet with her husband and stepson, along with 7 dogs, 4 cats, 3 goats, and a bunch of chickens. She loves to hike, ski, paddle board, garden, and read, but really just be outside!

Dani Dillon, Practice Owner and Veterinary Technician

Dani grew up on a farm in Vermont and started showing dairy goats in 4-H when she was 5 years old. At the age of 7 her interest turned to dogs and she began a successful career handling show dogs in the US and Canada. Dani began working at the Nederland Veterinary Hospital as a volunteer in 1996. When she is not caring for her community and their animals, Dani enjoys spending her time hiking, biking and horseback riding with her son.

Stevie Ames, Veterinary Technician

Lauren Clark, Receptionist and Veterinary Technician

Lauren moved to Colorado from California in 2017 looking for a change of scenery. Once here she adopted her first dog and found herself spending more time in Nederland than not and made the move from Boulder. She got her bachelors degree in biology and has a certification in human nutrition but has since found an interest in working with animals. She is enjoying life in Nederland, hiking with her pup and connecting with this wonderful little community.

Jennifer Travers, Veterinary Technician

I was born and raised in Pinecliffe where I currently reside with my boyfriend, two sons, two dogs, and my cat. I love the outdoors and hanging out in the sunshine.

Greta Balzer, Veterinary Technician

As a young child I loved working with animals. In middle school I was given the opportunity of an internship at Ned Vet with Joe Evans. After that I knew my future would involve working with animals. In 2011 I began by volunteering for a year and have been a part of the Ned Vet team ever since.

Rachel Schaub, Receptionist
