Hello, MVS family! My name is Maria Brock and I am so excited to be joining this wonderful practice as an associate veterinarian.
I grew up in Colorado and participated in a wide variety of equine activities. I was a proud member of Douglas County 4H and competed in several different western performance disciplines. I worked as a polo groom throughout high school and regularly volunteered with equine therapeutic riding programs. I even had a short stint in the hunter-jumper ring!
I started working with the wonderful people at MVS during the summer of 2016 and had the privilege of being Dr. Hartman’s technician for a few months. Over the past six years, all of the doctors and staff at MVS have played an incredible role teaching and mentoring me throughout my veterinary school experience. I feel so incredibly lucky to be able to come back and join a team that I already know and love so dearly!
During my schooling, I have developed strong interests in dentistry, nutrition, reproduction, and preventative medicine. I believe that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and enjoy working with people to create thoughtful, realistic plans that will help keep their equine partners in top shape. I also have a strong interest in cattle and ruminant medicine.
In my free time, I enjoy exploring this beautiful state we live in. During my time off, you will find me riding a mountain trail with my horse, hiking with my loyal partner (and the newest member of the MVS truck dog crew) Moxie, or tending to the small herd of Black Angus cattle that my partner, Harrison, and I co-own.
I cannot wait to get out on the road and start meeting you all!
