Dr. Amanda (Swogger) Simonson
I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. I then earned my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine
degree from Colorado State University in May 2003. I came to Norterra Animal Hospital with a strong commitment to helping people and their pets live
long healthy lives together. In May 2011, I completed my certification for veterinary medical acupuncture, also from Colorado State University. We
are very excited to be able to help more pets by offering this unique therapy. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends which
includes my husband and two stepchildren as well as our dog named Maggie and my Morgan horse named Fiera.
