Dr. Maura planted her veterinary career seeds during her dog-filled childhood. Maura’s mother regularly bred and showed dogs; and seven-year-old Maura took an active role in feeding, grooming, and training these high-value canines. She also actively participated in classes and practice shows. Maura soon discovered that dogs were masters at showing unconditional love and acceptance. By the time Maura turned nine, the dogs’ love and affection had made a profound impact on her. She developed a burning desire to embark on a veterinary career, as she wanted to give back to the wonderful animals who had enriched her young life!
After graduating with a degree in accounting from the University of Richmond and working in Washington, D.C., as a Certified Public Accountant for several years, Dr. Lisa Tornes realized that her heart just wasn’t in the business world. In the summer of 1999, she took a two-week-long backpacking trip in the mountains of southwestern Colorado. It was there, after having a chance to reflect on her long-term goals and career desires in the middle of the wilderness, that she realized something: animal care was her true passion! Dr. Tornes hasn’t looked back since—now, she’s proud to serve as an Associate Veterinarian with the Moore Animal Hospital family.
