Dr. Kelli Space - Medical Director
Dr. Kelli Space grew up in Estes Park, Colorado but spent many summers on her grandfather’s cattle ranch in Missouri.
It was there that she decided she would like to become a veterinarian at the age of 7 years old. She realized her dream graduating from the Colorado State University Veterinary School in 2001. Afterwards, she worked at a mixed animal practice in Longmont for 3 years and as a relief vet for a few practices along the front range before finding her ideal fit at Jasper Animal Hospital in May of 2007. At Jasper she has been able to refine her skills in her interest areas which include small animal soft tissue surgery, oncology, and internal medicine. She enjoys seeing dogs, cats, and pocket pets. She has loved her career so much that she was delighted to become the owner of the Jasper Animal Hospital January 1, 2018.
Dr. Space is fortunate to have a wonderful family at home including husband Mike and two children Ava and Aidan. She loves living in Boulder County where her interests of road cycling, running, skiing and hiking abound. Her current pets include Riley, an Aussie mix from a rescue, three rats, and two budgies.
