Dan Smith and his family consider this area home. After spending some time in the Springs, he has been living on the west side of Pikes Peak since 2011. He appreciates the majestic setting, unique people and hearty nature of this environment.
He started out in the suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Needing to warm up, he left to obtain a journalism degree from Arizona State University. Love of the outdoors, mountains and family eventually drew him to Colorado where he has been for more than 10 years. His diverse professional background includes newspaper reporting, print publication design, outdoor education, educational administration and website design.
When he is not at the office, he is enjoying his family, getting outdoors, freelancing websites, and building his mountain permaculture homestead business. He considers Rocky Top Vet Service a great opportunity to bolster this much-needed service in an under-served rural area so clients can live the mountain lifestyle that they love, with the animals that help make it home. It also affords him the opportunity to glean knowledge from a team of accomplished professionals.
He and his counterpart Hannah Estes handle the office side of the business focusing on client communication, accounting and appointment coordination. He also often handles the digital needs of Rocky Top–like building this website. He looks forward to continually strengthening Rocky Top’s positive impact on this remarkable community.
