Dr. Candice Akers
Dr. Candy was born in Dover, Delaware and studied Animal Science at The University of Delaware. During her undergraduate program she completed four summer internships at Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research, Inc. She discovered a passion for wildlife rehabilitation and studied husbandry, nutrition and medicine of native wild birds. Between undergraduate school and vet school, Candy worked full time providing professional oil spill response for affected wildlife. Dr. Akers attended veterinary school at Oklahoma State University. While studying for her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine she also taught fellow students about various subjects in wildlife and exotics medicine. Upon graduation in 2009, Dr. Candy moved to Denver, CO and worked in a small animal clinic. Here she focused on preventative medicine, surgery and client education. Over the years, Dr. Akers has observed the importance of holistic veterinary medicine, the effectiveness of an Integrative approach and the benefits of in-home care.
She began Journeys Mobile Veterinary Services with the goal of caring for pets with dignity and compassion. Her skills and experience bring together a well-rounded and respectful approach to her patients and clients. She believes that in-home care allows for a less stressful and more complete evaluation of each pet. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, The Colorado Veterinary Medical Association and The Parker Chamber of Commerce. At home Candy likes to spend time on her ranch, taking care of her dogs and chickens. She also enjoys gardening, cooking and watching football.
