Dr. Ley was born and raised in Cañon City and attended Colorado State University where he earned his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 2001. Upon graduation, he returned to Cañon City to join father Dr. Donald Ley at the clinic where he thoroughly enjoys the never boring aspect of a mixed animal general practice. He is married to Sarah who keeps busy as a part time athletic trainer at Cañon City High School and in helping out in the clinic when not wrangling their three children, Madelyn, Jackson, and Olivia.
Dr. Ley says his family's passion for God and the blessings he has provided them drives their lives as they enjoy the outdoor activities they are so fortunate to have available in such a wonderful place like Cañon City. The Ley family stable of animals currently includes Remy, the lab; Grit and Abner, their trusty horses; Mouse, a brown Swiss cow; Gabby and Tucker, fearless mouse hunters; and an ever changing population of goldfish.
Dr. Menegatti grew up in Cañon City and, with her father's veterinary practice in the back yard, it was inevitable that she follow suit and pursue the family business. She graduated from Colorado State University with her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 2006 (now 1 of 6 "Ley Family Vets" to graduate from CSU!). Dr. Menegatti joined her father, Donald Ley, and brother, Jeremy Ley, at Fourmile Vet where she practiced full time for 2 years. She then married her wonderful and supportive husband, Jeff, who is a full time ranch manager for the Twin Peaks Ranch west of Aguilar, CO. They live at the base of the beautiful Spanish Peaks along with their son Joe, and furry family of dogs, cats, horses, and cows. Dr. Menegatti now practices part time at Fourmile and serves as a relief veterinarian for several practices in the Southern Colorado region.
Dr. Doug Nicodemus was born in Wheatland, Wyoming. He went back east to play college baseball at a small agriculture school in west Tennessee for his undergraduate work, then went on to the University of Tennessee for his veterinary education. While there, Dr. Nicodemus met his future wife, Dr. Maranda Nicodemus, who is also a veterinarian. He always had an interest in returning to the West to practice, and, after graduating in 2011, Doug and Maranda moved to Wyoming and began working for a mixed animal practice. He enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, with a specific interest in beef cattle. In 2015 Doug and Maranda moved to Cañon City and began working at Fourmile.
In 2015, Doug and Maranda welcomed son Easton to their family. They also have three dogs: Marley the Pointer, Roper the Aussie, and Badger the Dachshund. Together they enjoy camping, fishing, hiking, snowboarding - pretty much anything outdoors! They are excited to become part of the Cañon City community and look forward to settling into such a beautiful area.
Dr. Maranda Nicodemus was born in Tennessee and raised on a small cattle farm, which gave her a love for animals at an early age. She graduated from Lee University in Cleveland, TN, with a degree in Biology and then attended the University of Tennessee where she received her DVM in 2012. After graduation Dr. Nicodemus moved to Wyoming where she enjoyed practicing alongside her husband, Doug. In 2015, they moved their family to Cañon City and after settling in, began working for Fourmile in May of 2016. They are very thankful to be a part of the Fourmile family!
In March 2015, Doug and Maranda added little Easton to their family, who keeps them busy at all times! Their family is completed by three dogs: Marley the Pointer, Roper the Aussie, and Badger the Dachshund. Doug and Maranda enjoy camping, fishing, hiking, snowboarding, and pretty much any outdoor activity.
