CLAIRE PRIMO

CERTIFIED CANINE MASSAGE THERAPIST, CERTIFIED VETERINARY NURSE

Claire was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida. Packing only enough to fit in her VW Bug, she moved to Colorado and found ``home`` in 2006. The vibrant, close-knit and health conscious community was an easy ``love at first sight`` for her. Deepening the human-animal bond is profoundly important for Claire, and helps guide her in all that she does. She is proud to have over 9 wonderful years of experience as a veterinary nurse, and became proficient and certified in animal massage through Rocky Mountain School of Animal Acupressure & Massage in 2015. Claire believes strongly in the body's innate ability to heal itself, and is a strong believer in integrative medicine for animals. She specializes in senior animals, and it is her hope that the energy and knowledge she delivers will help change the lives of all senior animals surrounding the Boulder area, while also empowering guardians with all the appropriate tools and guidance needed for a healthy and nurturing relationship with their pets. Claire is always continuing her education and is excited to be currently working on her acupressure certification. When Claire isn't helping to care for the animals of our community, she is enjoying her time in Lyons, Colorado with her baby boy, husband 2 dogs, and kitty!
