Kayala AyalaPractice Manager
Hi, my name is Kayala and I’m a native to Colorado. I’ve been a receptionist with Coal Ridge for 2 years and have taken upon the role of being the new practice manger. I have been working in the veterinary field for 5 years and I’m currently going to school for an associate degree in business management and veterinary technician. When I’m not working, I’m enjoying family time with my husband and 2 boys (age 11 and 16) as well as taking care of my mini ranch that I have that consists of many farm animals and my pets. I love gardening, crafts, beekeeping and taking care of my family.
Nine years ago, I began my journey in the world of animals, working at a boarding facility as part of their kennel staff. Starting as a bather, I discovered my passion for pet care, eventually becoming a dedicated groomer over the past three years.
Outside of the grooming studio, my life includes two cats and a ball python. Beyond pampering pets, I find joy in hiking and rock climbing, embracing the beauty of Colorado since my move from Illinois in 2017.
Committed to creating a positive grooming experience, my goal is to blend expertise with compassion, ensuring every pet leaves my care looking and feeling their best.

Hello, my name is Erik. I am a vet tech that works throughout every aspect of the hospital, so you will see me wearing multiple hats throughout the year. I have been here since the animal hospital opened. I love working with the animals making sure that they are provided with a fun and safe environment. There is nothing more rewarding than getting a nervous dog to become comfortable with the staff.
