Bekka Hopkins, DVM – “The Chocolate Lab”
I have lived in Colstrip for as long as I can remember. I originally set out to become a pediatric nurse but became a veterinary technician in the spring of 2022. I love being able to work with animals of all sizes. In my free time I enjoy reading, hiking, traveling, and camping.
Heather Grimm, DVM – “The Cattle Dog”
I have been practicing veterinary medicine since 2011 and previously attended Colorado State University. I pride myself on providing personalized and intimate veterinary care to my patients and clients. Veterinary medicine is rapidly changing every day, and I try my best to stay up to date on advances in veterinary medicine to deliver the best care possible to my patients. The best part of veterinary medicine is playing an important role in fostering the human-animal bond. I feel very fortunate to serve a key role in helping animals maintain their health and well-being to see the joy they can bring to peoples’ lives. I enjoy walking my dogs, horseback riding, gardening, fishing, hunting, and traveling in my free time.
Pam Zimmerman, Office Manager – “The Yorkie”
I have lived in Colstrip, MT, for 30 years, raised 5 children, and now enjoying 12 grandbabies! I came to work at High Prairie Vet Services in the fall of 2019 as the Office Manager. With a background in business, I did not realize how much I would enjoy working in the veterinary clinic world. Who doesn’t love cuddling puppies and kittens? After all, I love it! Every day is a new adventure, and I get to learn about our patients. Working with fur friends and their owners warms my heart. In my free time, I enjoy family weekends at the lake, spending time with my grandbabies, and even doing hands-on projects like designing and decorating. Bring on the power tools!
Marvin Matlack, Veterinary Assistant – “The Great Pyrenees”
I have been a veterinary assistant since the fall of 2020 and I love the diversity of animals seen and caring for patients watching them grow from youth to geriatrics. In my spare time, I love to go fishing, shooting, reading, and spend time playing video games.
Gavyn Zimmerman, Veterinary Assistant – “The German Shepherd”
I joined the HPVS family in June of 2021. What I enjoy most about veterinary medicine is seeing all of the animals that come in and helping them to feel better. I like to go outside, dirt biking, helping on the ranch, and playing video games in my spare time.
