Rachael Emerson, DVM

Rachael Emerson began working at Ridge Runner Veterinary Services after graduating from Colorado State University’s veterinary program in 2008.  She purchased the practice in 2012. 

Rachael spends most of her time working with our dog and cat patients, but she also occasionally gets the opportunity to see some of our large animal patients.  Her veterinary interests include internal medicine, oncology, and small animal dentistry. 

Outside of Ridge Runner, Rachael shares her home with two rambunctious Labradors, a sweet kitten, and two of the best kids on the planet.  You can usually find her running, hiking, or skiing depending on the season.
