Robin Downing,

Hospital Director of the Downing Center for Animal Pain Management, LLC and Windsor Veterinary Clinic, PC

Tell us about your business.
The Downing Center for Animal Pain Management, LLC was the first comprehensive pain prevention and treatment center for pets in Northern Colorado. We offer “state-of-the-heart” pain care and rehabilitation in a state-of-the-art facility. Windsor Veterinary Clinic is a full-service primary care practice. Evening hours twice a week increase the convenience of accessing our care. In addition, we mentor veterinary students, veterinary technician students and post-graduate veterinarians and technicians.

Describe your background and education.
I am a pioneer in animal pain management and palliative/hospice/end-of-life care for pets. I have earned two human pain management credentials and am a board-certified specialist in animal rehabilitation. I am also a Fear Free professional and am certified in human-animal bond studies. I am a clinical bioethicist, currently pursuing a doctorate in that discipline. And I am an affiliate faculty at the CSU College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, teaching veterinary students both at the university and in our facility.

What sets you apart?
What sets us apart includes our commitment to excellence in veterinary care as an American Animal Hospital Association accredited practice, and the delivery of that care in both a Fear Free and a cat-friendly practice environment.

What is your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of my work is facilitating, lengthening and strengthening the human-animal bond. Whether I am serving a newly adopted puppy or kitten in the primary care practice, or visiting with an aging pet experiencing chronic pain in the specialty referral practice, my prime directive is to do all I can to help that pet be as healthy, happy and comfortable as possible.

What inspires and/or motivates you?
The ever-changing landscape of veterinary medicine both inspires and motivates me. Transformational changes have occurred during my 33-year career. It is so exciting to embrace (and sometimes to contribute to) those changes that enhance life for pets and the people who love them.

What makes you successful?
Success comes from my commitment to excellence, keeping an open mind, pursuing life-long education and educating others along the way both formally and informally.

Jaclyn A. Munson, OD, FAAO
Optometrist, Fort Collins Family Eye Care

What sets you apart?
Fort Collins Family Eye Care is an enthusiastic group of national thought leaders bound by a culture of clinical excellence and advocacy. The patient’s optimal wellness is the hero of the story. Our preventative mindset and collaborative approach resassures patients. We share relationships with national leaders, college faculty, industry developers and a local panel of clinical advisory board members. My life’s work is to ensure patients are without symptoms and disrupt disease as early as possible.

In what ways do you support the community?
I support the community by hosting preventative workshops, supporting youth athletics, and belonging to United Way of Larimer County’s Community Impact Committee, the Fort Collins Chamber of Commerce, St. John XXIII and Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Churches, and Founder of Colorado’s Dry Eye Society.

What inspires and motivates you?
We impact people’s lives by protecting their vision. What brings me joy is the impact patients have had on my life. This pushes me to guide preventative conversations, dispel fears and anxiety and exceed expectations.

Karen Kinnes, Manager
Pet City

3663 S. College Ave., Suite 10
Fort Collins, CO 80525

What inspires and/or motivates you?
I have been working with animals since 2005. I love animals – I love puppies! The best part of my day is finding a wonderful, loving home for one of our happy, healthy puppies. We strive to not be your everyday pet shop. We work closely with more than 100 breeders to be sure our puppies come to us ready for their forever homes.

What sets you apart?
We require that all puppies spend at least two nights at the shop, to make sure everything is working properly. We visit our breeders. We have a staff that takes the health and well-being of all our puppies very seriously. Our priority is our animals, and we work very closely with our vet to help ensure each puppy has a wonderful start in its forever home. I think my love for animals and my staff’s commitment to our animals helps us find the best possible homes for all of our animals.

Tell us about your business.
At The CBD Store, our first priority is not to simply sell our CBD
products — it’s to educate others and advocate for the safe and sensible use of natural health remedies. With personal experiences and extensive industry knowledge serving as the base of our organization, we are committed to helping people experience the side-effect-free use of CBD oil.

Describe your background, education and/or certifications.
Having suffered from the debilitating effects of Crohn’s disease for many decades, I finally found relief when I tried medical cannabis as a natural treatment. At age 22, I was able to ditch my prescriptions, and I have virtually eliminated my symptoms for the past 30 years. My personal experience with medical cannabis has driven me to develop a personal mission of education and advocacy for cannabinoids and their benefits. Through public outreach efforts such as workshops and seminars, my team and I work to disseminate information regarding CBD oil and its benefits. In addition to opening The CBD Store in Loveland and Greeley, I am the former CEO of Medical Cannabis Outreach, which is a safe, professional clinic where patients with chronic or debilitating health conditions can gain legal access to medical marijuana treatment.
