Dr. Lindsay Mamula-Crippen, DVM, MBA, CVPM,CVFT
Dr. Mamula-Crippen's Bio
I am a native of Colorado. In high school I was an avid athlete playing volleyball, basketball, and soccer. I, also, loved the piano and started playing at the age of five. For as long as I can remember I have aspired to be a veterinarian. My animal care career started in high school. I worked as a kennel “kid” at our family veterinarian. Even though my role was small, I learned firsthand the importance the client places on feeling confident and comfortable with their pet care provider.
I attended Colorado State University (CSU) in Fort Collins studying Biology and Zoology. During college I worked at Lambspun of Colorado, a fiber arts gallery. While working there it was a necessity to acquire the skills of knitting, spinning, weaving and crocheting, but I, also, learned and saw firsthand how important it is to manage a business. Those three years provided me the confidence and determination to become a veterinarian and a business owner. Upon graduation from CSU, I applied and was accepted at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine. I graduated in May 2003 with a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) and returned to Colorado. To enhance my entrepreneurial knowledge, I decided to continue school and graduated with a Master of Business Administration degree (MBA) from the University of Colorado at Denver.
What are those other letters behind my name? As you can tell I have a love of learning. Business was always something that intrigued me having two parents that were CPAs (Certified Public Accountants). So, I went further with my education to become a Certified Veterinary Practice Manager (CVPM). Once I dove more into veterinary medicine, I found I have a love for nutrition. I started exploring Eastern Medicine and obtained my Certified Veterinary Food Therapist Certification (CVFT). The love of learning never dies, so I will continue to be the best veterinarian I can be.
My doctor career started soon after my return to Colorado as an emergency and critical care veterinarian on the overnight shifts for a large Castle Rock practice. Since I was the only veterinarian present at night, I learned a lot of practical experience quickly. I worked my way onto the day shift as a general practitioner. After five years of practicing medicine there, I advanced in my career by becoming part owner of a practice in Castle Pines. I was a general practitioner as well as the primary manager of the multi-doctor practice for the next six years.
I moved to Parker in August 2014 and love it. I am calling my new home Veterinary Center of Parker, Inc. aka VCPI.
The final tidbit about me is my family. I am married with a charming and beautiful 10-year-old daughter. No doubt you will see her at the clinic volunteering her time, walking your fur babies and helping the clinic stay clean. The furry family members are Black Diamond, Chloe, and Everett (all cats), Bucky (Boston Terrier), Hazel (French Bulldog) and lots of lizards, turtle, hamster, guinea pigs and birds. I have a passion for photography, crafts, nutrition and CrossFit.
I look forward to meeting you and am excited to be a part of a dynamic team that offers compassionate care for your beloved furry or scaled family members!
P.S. We work as a team; you rely on my staff and me, the doctor, to prevent and heal, and I rely on you to tell me their story. We hope to gain your trust and confidence as your veterinary care provider to love and protect your pet.

When I’m not working you can find me hiking with my dog, Poe, or playing with my cat, Lila, and turtle, Flip. I can’t wait to meet you and your furry friends!
Dr. Carlos Lloveras-Fuentes, DVM
Dr. Lloveras-Fuentes' Bio
Hello, I am Dr. Carlos! I was born in sunny San Juan, Puerto Rico and have always had a passion for helping animals in need. I started working with the local animal rescue organizations when I was in high school and this helped me realized that I wanted to become a veterinarian. I moved to Florida where I got my bachelor’s degree in Animal Science with a minor in Zoology from the University of Florida. Afterwards I moved to Alabama where I met my wife Alba and received my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree from Tuskegee University. Colorado’s outdoor and pet friendly lifestyle caught our attention and, after participating in a few externships in the Denver area, we decided Colorado was the place to be!!
We share our home with 2 Spanish Water Dogs named Zoe and Hugo, a Weimaraner named Zahra, 3 cats named Poe, Spy, and Alyah and 2 Sugar Gliders named Bindi and Lune. On our days off, we enjoy exploring Colorado with our dogs or you can find me at home playing the drums. I am so happy to be part of the VCPI Family and can’t wait to meet you!
Amy Edwards, CVT
Certified Veterinary Technician
I share my life with my husband, daughter, 2 dogs (Tuesday, a Tibetan Mastiff and Murphy a Pit Bull mix) and 3 cats (Bling, Zip, & Wasabi). I love spending time with my family outdoors. In the winter you can find me snowboarding and in the warmer months I enjoy gardening, hiking, and exploring the mountains and nature.
Shanyn Cascia, CVT
Certified Veterinary Technician / Lead Technician
Hello! I am very proud to be a part of VCPI, doing what I love alongside a work-family I adore! This is a second career for me, as I originally spent ten years working as a 9-1-1 dispatcher and manager. Growing up, I always had animals surrounding me and wanted to become a Veterinarian. While attending college, I had two amazing children and chose to focus on raising them while working at the 9-1-1 center. I am so thrilled to be here fulfilling life-long goals within the Veterinary Medicine community. I have a deep passion for leadership and helping others grow to see their fullest potential. When I’m not at work loving on your amazing furry family members, I am at home on our farm in Eastern Colorado alongside my wonderful husband. We grow our own produce and have critters that range from goats and llamas to dogs, turkeys, ducks, chickens, and a turtle named Edna! You could say that animals truly are my life, and I LOVE IT!
I look forward to seeing you and your wonderful pets at VCPI!
Rachel Acuna, CVT
Certified Veterinary Technician
Hello, my name is Rachel and I have been working in the veterinary field for over 9 years. I started as a kennel technician in 2013 and gradually worked my way up to the CVT (certified vet technician) I am today. I graduated from the University of Central Florida in 2014, with a Bachelors’s in biology. While there I also got to spend 2 years assisting with undergraduate research on water snakes, I would spend many nights out catching them from ponds or off the road, quite a time! I graduated from St. Petersburg University with an AA in Veterinary Technology in 2019. Working in the animal field has been my passion since I was a little girl, I have known no other form of work.
I am a Florida native who traded the ocean and warm weather for mountains and snow. I live in Colorado with my fiancé and our 4 lovely fur-children: Yahtzee (8yr old Siamese), Stella (7yr old domestic shorthair), Ravi (male leopard gecko), and Mochi (female fat-tail gecko). When I am not in the hospital, I spend my free time playing ultimate frisbee or volunteering at Nature’s Educators. I love the outdoors; I am excited to have my first full season to try new outdoor activities like snowboarding and ice skating. I look forward to caring for your fur-children at our hospital!
My name is JC Kaufman, and I was born and raised in Colorado. I grew up in Denver, then moved to Castle Rock in fourth grade. I grew up playing baseball, basketball, and soccer but decided to pursue club soccer competitively with the Men’s 1986 Olympic developmental program. I graduated from Highlands Ranch high school in 2004, then went on to play 2.5 years of collegiate Div. II soccer for Cal State Chico in northern California. I earned my bachelor’s degree with a double major in psychology/sociology from the University of Colorado at Denver in 2011. After graduation, I began volunteering/working at a local vet clinic, where I found my love and passion for animals. I have a dog named Koda (six-year-old shepherd/husky mix) as well as two cats at home, all of which I love spending my free time with, taking them for hikes, walks, camping, etc. I also enjoy traveling, going to the gym, hanging out with friends/family, and anything outdoors. I also still continue to play competitive soccer for the Denver Kickers and a few other leagues during the week to stay active and busy. I look forward to meeting you and your furry family here at the Veterinary Center of Parker, Inc.!
Aloha! My name is Lesley Perry. I am a native Hawaiian, born and raised on the island of Oahu. Though I miss the beautiful sandy beaches and lush green mountains of Hawaii, I have happily called Colorado my home since 2007. I am a graduate of the University of Hawaii at Manoa with a BA degree in zoology. I have worked in the veterinary field as a veterinary technician/assistant since 2005. My experience in the veterinary field has been with both general practice clinics as well as emergency hospitals. The hours that I have spent communicating with clients and helping to treat their pets have taught me the importance of compassion, empathy, strength, knowledge, and trust, all of which I strive to bring to each individual case.
When I’m not working, I enjoy simple pleasures, such as taking my dogs on long walks/hikes, going on bike rides, and relaxing in front of a movie. I share my life with my loving husband Chad, crazy anxious American Cocker Spaniel named Bosco, a handsome German Shepherd named Max, and sneaky Maine Coon/Tabby mix named Atticus.
Hi there, my name is Hayley Provencal! I was born and raised in the ocean state of Rhode Island. I moved to Colorado in 2020 with my husband and our four pets. I originally earned a Bachelor’s in Animation at the Art Institutes of Pittsburgh and wanted to be a concept artist. However, my true passion is working with animals and helping their owners!
Ever since I was a kid, I wanted to be in the veterinary field, and I have been caring for all kinds of animals my whole life. So, I decided to earn my Veterinary Technician Assistant certification through Auburn University and pursue my career in the veterinary world. I’m currently studying to become a Certified Veterinary Technician and eventually earn my bachelor’s degree in Animal Science.
I take great pride in helping owners and their pets in need, and I love what I do. When I’m not at the clinic, I like to collect crystals, draw, play video games, and hang out with my pets and husband! My dog, Radar, is a Chihuahua/Jack Russell mix who’s spunky and full of energy. Lucy, my orange long-haired tabby, is the queen of my household. Cooper is my long-haired black and white tuxedo who is a big cuddle bug. Ozzy is my bearded dragon who is awesomely chill!
I can’t wait to meet you and your pets!
Hi there! My name is Hayli Kuta. I spent most of my life growing up in Hells Canyon, Oregon. It is a beautiful little place right on the Snake River bordering Idaho and Oregon. My whole life, I have grown up with dogs in the home which I loved! I had the opportunity to assist my dad in training his Labrador retrievers for hunting. One of my best memories is being present while our family dog Tar gave birth to beautiful puppies! I guess I have always had a love for animals. After I graduated high school I did a couple of semesters at BYU-Idaho studying animal science. Then I decided I was needed elsewhere and served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint out east. I got to know the people (and their animals) in the states of Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware for 18 months! After that, I moved to Colorado and graduated from Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology in 2021, and am working on getting certified as a Veterinary Technician!
I enjoy spending my spare time dabbling in all sorts of crafts from stain glass work to woodwork to even some paper quilling. I love snuggling with my dog ( Chewie an 11-year-old pug) and watching some good Disney movies!
ALBA ARZÓN PEREIRA
Hi, my name is Alba. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico and I have been helping animals for as long as I can remember. I started working with wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and conservation in Puerto Rico since I was very young, and slowly transitioned into the veterinary medicine field while completing my B.S. in Biology. I have been working in different fields of veterinary medicine as a veterinary technician or assistant for more than 10 years. I have worked in shelter medicine, internal medicine, emergency and critical care, sports medicine and rehabilitation, and general practice. I love working with all species but I particularly enjoy working with feline patients and exotics. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband Carlos and our little home zoo.
CLIENT CARE REPRESENTATIVES
Hi there! I’m Kaleigh, and I am a Colorado native. I have been an animal lover for as long as I can remember. My compassion and empathy toward animals is the reason I chose to enter into the veterinary field. Right now, I am currently in school to pursue a career in Radiologic Sciences, but I plan to stay with veterinary medicine moving forward. Someday, my dream is to open an animal rescue for senior pets who need a second chance at life! I am beyond thrilled to be joining the Veterinary Center of Parker, Inc. team! Each day, I love meeting our new patients and continuing to grow bonds with our current patients. My favorite part about VCPI is our group of loving and dedicated staff members.
During my free time, I enjoy going hiking, jet-skiing, fishing, or riding my dirt bike! In the summertime, I spend a lot of time at Bandimere Speedway watching the drag races with my boyfriend and wishing I was a professional NHRA driver!! I also love to travel and sightsee, so you’ll find me on a road trip with my camera and ready to capture the moment. Thank you for reading a little bit about me, and I am so excited to meet you and your furry family!
Client Care Representative
Outside of school and work, I enjoy hiking, playing video games, baking and reading. I’m married to my undergrad sweetheart, and we have a wonderful cat and small dog who is the embodiment of mischief. Together, we have gotten to live in many parts of the country and have greatly enjoyed the adventure and opportunity to experience so much of the country—but the Denver Metro area must be one of our favorite places yet. I’ve lived in the Parker area for about two years now, and we both enjoy all the fun community events that happen in downtown Parker.
Client Care Representative
I’ve recently become interested in the benefits of canine nose work. I’ve taken several scent work courses and have seen the benefits first hand. It’s a great way to bond with your dog, provide mental stimulation, and give them the opportunity to use their primary sense!
For funsies, I like to bake, cook for friends and family, and enjoy all the outdoor activities Colorado has to offer. I hope to see you and your adorable pets soon at VCPI!
Hi, I’m Brooke! I’ve been in Colorado for the better part of 20 years. I love animals, and I’m so excited to be a part of the VCPI family. In my spare time, I enjoy running my small online clothing/art business, raising my one-year-old Cavalier King Charles/Maltese puppy Noodle, and staying involved in the community by doing charity work. I’m very passionate about music, cooking, and travel. I love meeting new people, and I take pride in making connections for others as well. I’m a lover of coffee, wine, and local Colorado craft beers. In the past five years, I’ve gotten a lot more involved in my kitchen, and I pride myself on feeding friends and family when they visit. I enjoy staying busy and learning and exploring beautiful Colorado.
I look forward to meeting you and your pets here at VCPI!
Amy Jaquinta, CVT
Hi! My name is Amy. I have always had a love for animals and knew from a very young age that working with them was the right career for me. I attended the Bel-Rea Institute, where I completed my schooling in March 2007 with an Associate of Applied Science degree in animal technology and from there went on to get my state certification in June 2007. I have had the pleasure of working in small and large animal clinics, a specialty clinic specializing in neurology, and even enjoyed some time working in the pet insurance industry. I am happy to call the Veterinary Center of Parker, Inc. my home!
After years working in the clinic as a Certified Veterinary Technician, I was given the opportunity to manage the clinic’s Inventory. I currently work remotely from my home in Iowa…Yes, you read that right. I do not currently live in Colorado. My husband and I were married in September 2020,and he swooped me away to Iowa. Thankfully I was given the wonderfully amazing opportunity to stay on with the Veterinary Center of Parker, Inc with my Inventory role. I did happily take on a few other tasks as well.
My husband Ty and I live on a beautiful little acreage in Iowa and have two fur babies. Dierks a Labrador Retriever and Benelli an American Bully. In our spare time, my husband and I love to be outdoors! A few of our favorite activities are hiking, camping, riding horses and boating. Oh! And traveling back to my home state…Colorado! Although I don’t get to see you and your pets in the clinic as often as I used to, I love knowing that I get to support you in other ways!
Heather Allman, CVT
Marketing & Creative Director
Hi! My name is Heather Allman. Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved animals and dreamt of working with them in one way or another. That dream came true when I became a certified veterinary technician. I have been a CVT since 2005 and have worked in research, small animal, nonprofit, and as a practice manager for a large general practice clinic. Since becoming certified, I obtained my associate’s degree in business and my bachelor’s degree in marketing. I love the business side of the veterinary world and have loved working as a marketing director for several years. I have lived in Colorado all my life and love being outdoors enjoying all it has to offer. In my spare time, you will find me crafting, reading a book, watching a movie, or going for a hike. I love spending time with my amazing son Hunter and my pup Paisley. I look forward to meeting you and your furry family!
I live at home with my parents, my Yellow Labrador Retriever Jager, and the feral cat wandering our fields that I’ve adopted into the family. Whenever I want to relax, I love to play video games and draw. When it’s wintertime, I enjoy skiing and, in the summer, I love to go paddleboarding and rock climbing!
