Dr. Jennifer Regis was born and raised in Boston, MA and made the move to Colorado after falling in love with the Rocky Mountains. Dr. Regis received her BA in Biology with a minor in Anthropology from Boston University in 2004 and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Florida in 2008. She has completed the Small Animal Acupuncture course at the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine and is currently pursuing her Masters of Science in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine at the same location.
Dr. Regis has always loved learning and is a self-professed “science nerd.” She loves reading about the animal kingdom and learning about how different animals are related to each other. At an early age, much to her mother’s chagrin, Jennifer began caring for neighborhood strays and inheriting other people’s pets. Her nurturing nature and love of natural science grew into a passion for veterinary medicine, and by high school, a career goal. Prior to veterinary school, she volunteered at the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston and worked as a veterinary assistant at Angell Memorial Animal Hospital. Her special interests include acupuncture for internal medicine and food therapy.
Her passion is to practice fully integrative veterinary medicine, incorporating both Eastern and Western Medical approaches to provide the best care for her patients. In her spare time Dr. Regis enjoys hiking and yoga and would love to run a marathon some day. She greatly enjoys music, both listening to and singing, and truly believes in the power of music to soothe the soul. She lives with her boyfriend and their two very rambunctious dogs, Miles and Midori.
