Nina T. Clow, DVM, Owner

Although born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in May of 1960, Dr. Clow’s family moved to California in 1963 where it was “a little bit warmer”.  The majority of Dr. Clow’s childhood was spent on an Almond Ranch in the San Joaquin Valley, which taught her the importance of hard work and perseverance.

Dr. Clow’s first BS was from Fresno State University in Surveying and Photogrammetry out of the Civil Engineering Department in 1983.  She worked for Pacific Gas and Electric Co. for 3 years as a Land Surveyor, then was promoted to Crew Chief.  The life of hotel rooms did not suit her, so she resigned and started the long journey to become a veterinarian.

Dr. Clow attended Fresno State University from 1983-1986, taking PreVet courses.  She graduated from Washington State University, Pullman, Wa, School of Veterinary Medicine in 1994.  She first practiced in Reno, Nevada for 3 years at a small animal practice where she discovered the challenge of exotic animal medicine, soft tissue surgery, and treating lots of Parvo/Distemper cases.  In 1998, the family moved to Denver, CO, where she has been practicing at Quebec Highlands Animal Clinic ever since.  Dr. Clow lives with her husband in Highlands Ranch Co, has a wonderful son in college, and live with a Smooth Fox Terrier named Mikey, and a Maine Coon cat named Theo.  Dr. Clow enjoys flyfishing, gardening, biking, hiking with the dogs in the Rockies, and great outdoor concerts.

Dr. Megan Lowthorp

Dr. Lowthorp has been an associate veterinarian with Quebec Highlands Animal Clinic since June of 2019. She earned her Bachelors of Arts, Biology and Japanese at Wellesley College, and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine.

Dr. Lowthorp’s passion that brought her to the veterinary field was to be able to combine her extensive knowledge of science with her knowledge of animals. She knew that she was in the right professional the moment she had done her first solo surgery.

Her professional interests include anesthesia, analgesia, ophthalmology and preventative medicine.

Outside of her practice, Dr. Lowthorp enjoys spending time with her furry family, Miki (Dog), Lily and Marshall (Cats), as well as skiing (downhill & water) and bicycling (road & mountain).

Erik, Office Manager

Before becoming the Office Manager of Quebec Highlands Animal Clinic, I was (and still am) a veterinary technician. I am a native of Denver, Colorado, and I have been in the veterinary field for 18 years. I have an Associates of Science degree in veterinary technology and am currently finishing my Bachelor of Science in Business Management.

I knew as a kid that I wanted to work with animals, but I’ll admit that I did not know what I was getting into when I chose to become a technician. I never thought of myself as a student of biology. However, I really enjoy working with the animals, as well as their human family. I especially enjoy it when I win over a grumpy cat.

I have two cats: a calico named Sally, and a black cat named Kasey. I also have a large family, which I enjoy spending time with. I also enjoy learning about different types of animals, most anything to do with arts and music, and I love to sing. I also enjoy traveling whenever I get
the chance.

Anny, Technician

Anny has been with Quebec Highlands Animal Clinic since 2017. She earned her Bachelor of science from NMIMT in 2013 and earned her Associate of Applied Science in Veterinary Technology from Bel-Rea Instutute in 2015.

Since she was little, she has always had a passion for animals which lead to her interest in the veterinary field. One of the things that she loves most about her job is how happy it makes her to see how excited dogs are from the smallest gesture – it’s contagious!

When she’s not at work, Anny spends time with her boyfriend Jonthan and her lovely mutt Mack (Mikachu), playing video games, reading,  enjoying food and growing succulents.

Lynzee, Technician

My name is Lynzee Nielsen. I am a CVT at Quebec Highlands Animal Clinic, and have been here since February 2011. I am originally from Utah. I came to Colorado in 2008 to attend Bel Rea Institute of Animal Science, where I received my Associates degree in Animal Science in 2010. I first worked at Harrison Memorial Hospital, and then got hired on at QHAC. Like most techs, I love animals and have always wanted to work with them since I was a little kid. I bandaged my stuffed animals and use my computer and mouse as an ultrasound machine. I always made sure they had the best of care! Growing up on a small farm, I had all sorts of animals, including: goats, llamas, chickens, ducks, cats, dogs, and a couple of geese! Apart from loving animals, i also enjoy client education. I love helping the animal parents understand whats going on with their furry four legged children and what they can do at home to make them more comfortable and happy and just making sure that they leave our clinic with confidence and the knowledge they need to better the lives’ of their animals. Currently I have two cats, Stache (11 year old female) and Spencer (7 year old male) both domestic short hairs. I rescued Stache when she was about 3 years old and Spencer when he was 8 weeks. When I’m not working or hanging out with my babies, i enjoy mountain biking, snowboarding and hiking. I love the outdoors and what better state to enjoy it in than Colorado!
