With Blue Sky since: 05/31/2019

Hi, my name is Nadya! I was born and raised in the moody weather of Colorado, and I grew up surrounded by animals.

My dog and my cat, Binky and Rudy, have both helped me through tough times. I have been fortunate to have loved and lost and I know how important it can be to have animals in our lives. That is why I pursued a job at Blue Sky, to help those animals and the wonderful people that love them. I graduated from Front Range with an Associates degree in Arts, but for now what I enjoy most is spending my time helping the people that help animals: Veterinarians and Veterinarian Technicians!
