Former intern Stegemoller joins Alpine Animal Hospital

Veterinarian Associate Dr. Jolee Stegemoller, DVM, has been hired by Alpine Animal Hospital in Carbondale. Stegemoller joins us after a successful year as our full-time intern. A graduate of Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine and a native of southern Indiana, she and her husband Derek have fallen in love with the area and the people of the Roaring Fork Valley — as the staff at AAH have with her. Stegemoller will be serving companion and large animal clients in the treatment and care of their dogs, cats, equine and bovine friends.

In her spare time, she and Derek enjoy hiking and camping with their dogs Jethro and Junie. Stegemoller is looking forward to the continued relationships she has established with her clients and their animals and to the new people and pets she will get to meet moving forward.

Wells now an ALine certified expert

Midland Fitness personal trainer, AT and certified strength coach Steve Wells is an ALine certified expert. This means that Glenwood Springs and New Castle area residents can now get access to a professionally fit, patented foot suspension insert. Most people suffer from misalignment from the feet, ankles and knees. What is described as lower back pain, sore feet and aching knees can often be traced to poor alignment. Other common problems such as plantar fasciitis, neuromas and shin splints can be minimized or eliminated with Aline inserts. Professional personal trainers at Midland Fitness and NCFF are experts at teaching practical biomechanics to reduce joint wear, fatigue and injury due to poor alignment, abuse and age. Call 945-4440 or 984-3200 to schedule an appointment.
