While at CSU, she worked on an NIH program to help better understand and treat cancer in dogs. Since 2002, she has been happy to be a part of the skilled, caring staff at Blue Sky Animal Clinic!

Education: Colorado State University

Dr. Zubricky is a proud Colorado native and grew up in the mountains near Boulder. She attended Colorado State University in Fort Collins for her undergraduate, master’s and DVM degrees. GO RAMS!!

She currently lives in Loveland with her 2 labrador retrievers, Lily & Bill. She is a huge fan of labs but love dogs (and cats!) of all shapes and sizes!

Her professional interests include dentistry, surgery and client education. She loves contributing to the special human-animal bond by providing quality care to her patients.

In her free time, she enjoys hiking with her dogs, camping and staying active at the gym. She is excited to get into mountain biking this year.

Dr. Victoria Tanguay – Veterinarian

With Blue Sky since: 11/9/16
Education: Colorado State University

Dr. Victoria (Tory) Tanguay has wanted to be a veterinarian for as long as she can remember. Born and raised in Silver Spring, MD, she received her bachelor’s degree in biology from Hood College in Frederick, MD. Deciding she had had enough of Maryland, she moved to Nashville, TN where she worked for several years as a veterinary technician before moving cross-country yet again to attend veterinary school at Colorado State University.

Her professional interests include sports medicine, rehabilitation, and chronic pain management. She is certified in veterinary medical acupuncture and plans on pursuing certification in canine rehabilitation therapy as well. She is excited to bring these skills to Blue Sky’s patients to help them live as full and pain-free lives as possible.

Dr. Tanguay currently lives in Johnstown with her fiancé, Trevor, their “tri-pawd” wonder-dog, Bandit, their diva of a cat, Fancy, and their newest addition, fearless kitten, Salem. When not at the clinic, she is a self-proclaimed “nerd of all trades” who loves reading, antiquing, Comic Cons, crafting, museums, hiking, history podcasts, crocheting, and cross-stitching.

Dr. Megan Gleeson – Veterinarian

With Blue Sky since: 6/15/17
Education: Colorado State University

Dr. Gleeson spent the first 25 years of her life in Lawrence, Kansas, where she watched many hours of college basketball, played drums in the high school marching band and did a lot of dog sitting. She attended the University of Kansas, where she was a rower on the crew team for four years and graduated with a degree in journalism. She quickly decided she needed more animals and mountains in her life, so she moved to Colorado in 2011 to pursue a veterinary career. She later graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in Veterinary Medicine.  

Her professional interests include soft tissue surgery, pain management, preventative medicine and client education. When she’s not working at Blue Sky, she also enjoys volunteering for the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program. 

She resides in Fort Collins with her family, which includes her husband (Sam), two dogs (Oatmeal and Allen) and one cat (Edd).  She enjoys brewery patios, comedy podcasts, backpacking, Netflix, bonfires, Terry Pratchett novels and board games. 

Dr. Stephanie A. Schwarz-David – Veterinarian

With Blue Sky since: 1/10/17

In my youth, I always dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. Growing up in the rural San Luis Valley near Alamosa, Colorado, and participating in 4-H provided a wonderful environment for learning about my chosen career path.

I received my DVM from Colorado State University CSU in 1992 and began my veterinary career in the small town of Estacada, Oregon. My patients included a variety of companion pets, horses, exotics, and farm animals. As a full time “mixed” general practitioner, I managed patients both within a hospital setting and in the field and was very often on-call for emergencies.  

In 1996 we returned to Fort Collins for my husband’s career and to be nearer to relatives due to parenthood. I resumed with only small animal part-time work as it allowed me to continue to practice veterinary medicine and also be able to take care of my growing family. My husband and I recently celebrated 27 years of marriage. Our five children, ages 13-23, fill our lives with adventure and joy. Our pets include a 3-legged German Shepard, 2 cats, a bunny, a hamster and a goldfish.

I am so excited to be pursuing my lifelong dream of being a veterinarian. Blue Sky Animal Clinic has an excellent staff dedicated to the health and happiness of pets and their families. It is a pleasure to be part of such a fine group of wonderful people.
