Cynthia is truly our hospital ambassador. Everyone loves Cynthia. She is a very special, caring person. She brings out the best in everyone she’s around, and I can’t imagine our hospital without her.
— Dr. Mike

Cynthia was born and raised in Reno, Nevada.  She moved to Santa Fe in 1995 and started with us two years later when we were still a 4 doctor practice. Everyone in Santa Fe seems to know Cynthia; she is the bright face our clients see first thing they walk in the door. You probably know her by her pink lipstick, bag of candy, poofy bun, and great conversation.

“Not only do I love the people and all of the animals, but Smith Vet has changed my life. I wouldn’t be half the person I am today if I had never worked here,” Cynthia says.  “The owners Mike and Kathy Dobesh have welcomed me into their family.  I’ve been so lucky to have seen their daughters, Kelsey and Kaitlin, grow into beautiful women.  I wouldn’t trade this job for anything.”

In her free time, Cynthia enjoys spending time with her fiancé Joe, and their dog Sam at their ranch observing all of the wildlife and hiking. She also likes to cook for the office, ride her motorcycle, and watch movies
