We are so fortunate to have Madison as a skilled and attentive veterinary and surgical technician, and she brings to Powder Paws experience in emergency veterinary medicine. She keeps us all laughing with her light-hearted sense of humor and happy personality. She lives in Salt Lake with her husband, Eli the cat, and dogs Bentley and Harley, and their baby, Hadley Faye.

Ashley Capps, Veterinary Technician
Ashley moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Park City, Utah in 2006. She brings to Powder Paws both pet sitting and supervisory experience from a local dog and cat boarding facility, and we are thrilled that she’s sharing her fantastic customer service, positive attitude, and passion for animals with our clinic and clients. She has two doggy best friends; Nani, a French Bulldog, and Wrigley, a Boston Terrier, and she enjoys laughing at their antics. In her spare time, she helps friends and family care for their pets.

Seeking new adventures, Courtney moved to Utah from her home state of Maine in late 2015 and joined the Powder Paws team in early 2016. Holding a B.S. in Wildlife Biology from Clemson University, she had originally spent most of her career in research, but later developed a strong interest in veterinary medicine. She began work as a veterinary technician in 2014, and is currently on her way to applying to veterinary school. Courtney loves the family feel at Powder Paws and is enjoying learning under the great tutelage of the doctors and staff at the clinic. In her free time she enjoys exploring the Western U.S. with her dog, Moose, and spending time at home with her deaf cat, Jasper.
