Dr. Rebecca Young Amesbury was born and raised in Gilroy, California. It was her plan from an early age to become a veterinarian.

She served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Santiago, Chile. Upon her return she received her bachelor’s degree in Bio-Veterinary Science from Utah State University in 2003, and her doctorate from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2007.

Dr. Hope Teyler was raised in the small town of Alamosa, Colorado. She decided in the 8th grade that she wanted to be a veterinarian, and never wavered from that course.

Dr. Teyler earned her doctorate degree from CSU in 2004. After veterinary school she practiced outside Palm Springs, CA for 3 years before relocating to a practice in Park City, UT.
