Our goal is to provide high-quality, individualized, integrative medical care for your horse. EPIC actively participates in the local equine community as we believe that the philosophy of integrative medical care includes aiding the community as a whole. We also believe that learning never ends, so Dr. Finn continues to pursue education in practices new and established, Eastern and Western, to provide the most complete and comprehensive care possible for patients and clients. Call us today — we will be happy to explore with you the ways that our services will benefit your animal.
JAMES & SKYE
James is a 6-year-old black and tan Jack Russell terrier, and Skye is an 11-year-old Siberian husky. They often accompany Dr. Finn on her calls as they love riding in the car and meeting new people.

Dr. Finn grew up outside of Boston, Massachusetts. She developed a love for horses at a young age, riding, participating in 4-H, and volunteering with a therapeutic riding program. Dr. Finn graduated from Tufts University in 2007 with a BS in Biology and Spanish. She soon moved to Philadelphia to attend the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. Her studies focused on sports medicine and surgery, and she was awarded the Large Animal Surgical Award.
After graduation, Dr. Finn returned to New England for an internship at Fairfield Equine Associates in Newtown, CT, where she received in-depth training in equine sports medicine and also managed medical and surgical cases. There she got her first taste of the value of acupuncture and chiropractic medicine for the sport horse. Dr. Finn returned to Pennsylvania after her internship, where she worked for two well-regarded practices: Sports Medicine Associates of Chester County and Blauner, Vecchione, Buchholz and Associates. While there she continued to practice sports and general equine medicine and completed her training in acupuncture through OneHealthSIM (now CuraCore) and her chiropractic training through Options for Animals.
Dr. Finn moved to Colorado to start her own practice in the early fall of 2016. When not helping horses achieve their full health and best performance, she can be found enjoying the Colorado outdoors. If you see her hiking with her two dogs, James and Skye, trail running, or riding her bike around Golden, please say hello!
