Dr. Evelyn Iacono comes to Colorado from her hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. A childhood filled with animals and a passion for science and learning made veterinary medicine a clear career choice.
Dr. Iacono began her veterinary training by shadowing her family’s equine veterinarian in high school and college, Dr. Susan O’Brien. She completed her undergraduate education at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio where she competed on the university basketball team and spent summers continuing her pursuit of veterinary medicine by interning at the Cincinnati Zoo working with elephants and giraffes.
Dr. Iacono received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. During her time at OSU she was able to take part in a course abroad, studying in Thailand where she learned about Thai culture along with veterinary medicine, focusing on elephant care. Also at Ohio State, Dr. Iacono acquired two furry family members, her dog Rumi, and cat, Earl. After graduating from OSU, Dr. Iacono completed a one year mixed animal internship at Alpine Animal Hospital in Carbondale, Colorado.
Professional interests include preventative health care, sports medicine, equine reproductive medicine, and internal medicine.
In her spare time she enjoys hiking, rock climbing, biking, snow sports, and spending time with her friends, both furry and human. She is thrilled to be joining Colorado On-Site Veterinary Services and to be a part of the Eagle County community!
