Dr. Nick Ruocco - Veterinarian, Owner

Dr. Nick Ruocco III grew up in Lexington, MA - the home of the Minutemen and the Battle Green. He studied hard to follow in the footsteps of his parents, Dr. Cathy Rosenfield, a Pediatric Oncologist and Dr. Nick Ruocco Jr, an Interventional Cardiologist. But as his Grandpa used to say, he never met a dog he didn't like! So after completing undergrad at Colby College in Maine and playing four years of collegiate baseball, Dr. Nick followed his true passion, veterinary medicine. 

He graduated from Cornell University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2018. With his wife, Dr. Lauren Luedke, they recently returned to Lauren's home state of Colorado. Dr. Lauren, a CSU grad, started as an Assistant Professor in Equine Surgery at CSU in the fall of 2022. The Rammies hold a special place in the Luedke family. Her brother and sister-in-law, both CSU alum, own Heritage Equine in Thornton  ( Their father, also a CSU alum, owned Glenwood Veterinary Clinic for nearly 30 years ( 

Nick and Lauren are often found outdoors with their three dogs, Lucy, Drake and Ellie, along with their adventure kitty, Liv. Besides starting a new practice, the busy couple recently welcomed their first child, Nicky IV, into the world. We hope you'll get to visit the whole family at CRVC and Join the Pack!

Dr. Albane Fauron - Veterinarian, Owner

Originally from France, Dr. Fauron completed an undergraduate science degree in Paris before graduating from the Royal Veterinary College (London, UK) with a degree in veterinary medicine in 2015.  Immediately following graduation, she went on to complete a busy 12-month small animal rotating internship at the RVC Queen Mother Hospital for Animals.

In the summer of 2016, Dr. Fauron moved to the US after being offered a position at Michigan State University’s Veterinary School. After almost three years in the midwest, she moved to Colorado in 2019. While Dr. Fauron enjoys every aspect of general practice and urgent care medicine, her special interests include orthopedics, soft tissue surgery and wound management. When not working, Dr. Fauron can typically be found on some trails, either running with her wife and their two (equally wonderful and mischievous) Labradors, Heidi and Ralph, or mountain biking.  She also has two adorable Snowshoe cats named Lemon and Caper.
