Dr. Natalie Wells (professionally known as Dr. Sodaro) has been working with animals both large and small from a very young age. Before receiving her undergraduate degree in Animal Science from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo she worked with horses, dogs, and cats through various rescue organizations. After receiving her degree in California she moved abroad to Scotland where she was able to continue her pursuit of a veterinary career whilst traveling all over the U.K and Europe. She graduated from the University of Glasgow with her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 2016.
After graduation, she returned to the U.S. and completed a one-year small animal rotating internship at Animal Specialty and Emergency in Los Angeles, California. With a growing interest in surgery, she then completed a one-year surgical internship at Mission Veterinary Specialty and Emergency in San Antonio, Texas where she met Dr. Wells.
They moved to Fort Collins, CO with their Border Collie mix, Swagger, and a ball python, Glenn, in 2018 where Dr. Sodaro began working in small animal general practice. It was not long before Dr. Sodaro became established in the community and they gained another family member, a Golden Retriever mix, Hank. Dr. Sodaro enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine and is passionate about meeting new patients and clients in order to build relationships with, educate and care for the furry members of their families.
When not at work, Dr. Sodaro enjoys being outdoors. Whether it be she hiking and camping with her two dogs, gardening, swimming, or paddle-boarding in Horsetooth Reservoir. Natalie also enjoys yoga, reading, and cooking with her husband.
