Dr. Brewster is originally from Nebraska. She earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Iowa State University in 2011. During veterinary school she came to Colorado for several weeks for an internship and knew she wanted to live here. After graduating, she packed up her four-legged family and moved to Denver. Dr. Mindy worked in private practice for 7 years honing her diagnostic and surgical skills while also volunteering in shelter medicine. Dr. Mindy became aware of Caring Pathways in 2011 when she had to say goodbye to her first pet, a very special senior cat named Jack. That experience taught her the value of a peaceful, at-home passing. The experience impacted her so much that she knew she wanted to help others in this way too. Dr. Mindy is truly honored to be able to provide this service for people and their beloved pets as part of the Caring Pathways Team. Dr. Mindy is committed to life-long learning and is always looking for ways to better serve her clients and their pets. She recently completed over 100 hours of continuing education in end-of-life care and earned her certification in hospice and palliative care (CHPV).
Dr. Mindy has 3 fur-kids: a Doberman named “Rip”, a Collie mix named “Ruca”, and a stray Pitbull she picked up while working who’s named after “Reba” McEntire. Even though she has 3 dogs, she’s really a cat person….shhh don’t tell the dogs! In her spare time, Dr. Mindy enjoys hiking, pretending to be a runner, reading, and cooking gourmet meals for friends and family.
