Chappelle Vet Hospital: Dr. Sophie Nelson

Dr. Sophie Nelson

Dr. Nelson is originally from Louisville, Colorado, and grew up riding horses. She always wanted to be a veterinarian and received her B.S. from Colorado State University in Biomedical Sciences, followed by her M.S. in Student Affairs in Higher Education (she realizes this is quite a detour from the science route, but absolutely loves working with students!).

As of May 2019, she will have received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from CSU. Her interests within veterinary medicine include client education and partnership, emergency medicine, and cardiology. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her horse (Nolan) and cat (Dio), exploring local breweries with her family and fiancé, laughing at cat memes, and cheering on the CSU Rams. After working at Chappelles as a receptionist and veterinary assistant since 2012, she is ecstatic to continue her professional career at the place that it all began!
