Growing up competing in El Paso County, 4-H allowed for Dr. Hensen to discover her passion for animals. She also focused on animal welfare and western heritage while promoting the El Paso County Fair and the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo as a rodeo queen. Being a Colorado Springs native, Dr. Hensen is excited to be back home after pursuing her educational endeavors. She graduated from Colorado State University with Bachelor of Science degrees in both animal science and equine science. She then completed her veterinary business certificate and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Midwestern University in Phoenix, Arizona. Dr. Hensen’s professional interests include pathology and epidemiology, and she takes pride in connecting with clients and their beloved pets in the exam room. Outside of the clinic, she enjoys spending time with her husband, son, horses, dogs who might as well be horses, and her cats!
