Altos Veterinary Clinic offers a work environment that values diversity, and the importance of our employees’ contributions to our hospital cannot be overstated. Our staff thinks of themselves as a big, happy family, and we are excited to welcome you and your pet as part of that family. We hope you enjoy meeting them.
Wayne, El Presidente de Magnifico, TLWLT Inc (parent company of Altos)
Initially believed to have been born on Earth, Wayne later learns that he is a member of an extraterrestrial warrior race called the ‘Guitar Heroes’, which is also the reason for his superhuman strength. As Wayne grew up, he became the Earth’s mightiest warrior and protects it from those who seek to destroy it. During his mission, he met and caught the eyes of Dr. Tamara White and since then has brought about a mess of children who are all entirely too precocious. Since then, he has taken a break from his journey and spends his time working at Altos as a general handyman, tech geek and client liaison. In his spare time is the CEO for Altiam Digital, lead singer in an 80s rock band, serious Harley Davidson enthusiast with pipes that are entirely too loud, amateur brew master continually tinkering with beer recipes, author and blogger. He has a house full of children, a handful of dogs & cats, and enough KISS albums & paraphernalia to open a museum.
Rachael, General Manager
Born and raised in Colorado (and at Altos) Rachael started her animal career as soon as her family bought the clinic. She started just cleaning kennels and “helping” the technicians as best as she could. In recent years Rachael has started helping with all aspects of the business, whether that be as an assistant, helping with front of house, or working in the back office. She is currently attending school for human resources and business management. She enjoys painting and embroidering, spending time with loved ones, and her crazy little cat Madchen(who is impossible to take pictures with).
Tracy, Registered Veterinary Technician
A rare born and raised Florida native, found her calling in the veterinary field while living in New York in 2011, where she left a management career in retail to become a Veterinary Assistant. Tracy graduated tech school, became a Licensed Veterinary Technician in 2014, and has been “Living the Dream” ever since! Tracy moved to Colorado in 2018 after reconnecting with her high-school sweetheart and worked at another animal hospital, prior to joining the Altos Team/Family. She has experience with all small animals including exotics and really enjoyed working with the farm animals during tech school. Her long-term goal is to have enough land and resources to create a rescue/rehabilitation home for all animals in need. She feels Colorado is the best place she’s ever lived, and it truly is an animal loving state! Tracy specializes in all things vet-tech related, really loves assisting with surgeries/dentals, building client relationships, helping to train coworkers, and learning new skills/techniques as well. On her days off she enjoys spending quality time with her partner and two boston terriers, Sully & Sophie, catching up on shows, taking hikes, trying to be crafty, and working on puzzles.

Mr. Man, Hospital Greeter
Mr. Man was a feral cat brought in by a client after being in a bad accident. When he came in, his name was “Old Man,” however Mr. White felt that was rude so now he goes by Mr.Man! After Dr. White helped get him all healed up, he got his first and only job as our lovely clinic cat. He would be ecstatic if you decided to say hello next time you come in.
