Dr. Irace grew up in a small town called Goshen, New York. She first had the opportunity to be involved with horses during high school when she had the privilege of volunteering at a therapeutic riding center. Her experience there solidified her dream of becoming a veterinarian. These horses provided a foundation of healing for their riders and inspired her goal as a veterinarian to be able to give back to the animals that provide so much. She moved to Colorado in 2014 with the goal of attending veterinary school, she was accepted and then graduated from CSU’s veterinary program in 2022. During veterinary school, she developed a passion for equine sports medicine and rehabilitation. Her goal for her internship here at Colorado Equine Clinic is to continue building on the skills and experiences she gained through school to become a proficient mixed animal practitioner. In her personal life, she has an adorable calico cat named Lucy, and outside of the clinic she enjoys baking, reading and spending time outdoors.
