Tarina L. Anthony, DVM

Owner, Medical Director

Growing up as a kid in Wyoming with posters of cute kitties all over her walls, Dr. Anthony never would have thought she could make a living taking care of cats. After begging her dad for a kitten when she was 9, she hasn’t had a day without a cat in her life.

Many years later, in 2007, Dr. Anthony graduated with her DVM from Colorado State University. Immediately after graduation, she and her soon-to-be husband packed up their three cats and meager belongings and moved to Chicago. She started at a feline-exclusive practice and fell even deeper in love with cats. Dr. Anthony worked as an associate for a few years before becoming the Medical Director.

After a decade helping kitties in the windy city, Dr. Anthony and her husband moved back to Colorado, this time with two children. She worked at a couple of other clinics before finding Aurora Cat Hospital & Hotel. She is thrilled to be able to help the cats of the Denver area as the new owner and medical director of ACHH.

When not at the clinic, Dr. Anthony can be found with her family (complete with three young cats), often doing crafty projects or hiking the trails behind her house. Don’t hesitate to reach out–helping people take care of their feline friends is her biggest passion.

Sam White, CVT

Veterinary Nurse

Sam grew up in Golden, Colorado. Her mother was a vet tech, so she quickly became comfortable around many different types of animals and decided to spend her life dedicated to their care.

Sam graduated from the Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology in 2014, and worked both in small animal and feline-exclusive practice. She found her calling with cats and has never looked back.

Sam started at Aurora Cat Hospital & Hotel in January 2020 with Dr. Anthony. In her free time, she enjoys working out, watching movies with her husband and kids, and playing with her handsome mini-panther Bagheera.
