Dr. Evelyn Fitzpatrick

Dr. Fitzpatrick's Bio

Dr. Evelyn Fitzpatrick (AKA “Dr. Fitz”) grew up in Glendale, AZ, and started her multi-college career. First, she headed to Colorado State University to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Wildlife Biology. Then she started a Master’s Degree in PathoBiology and Infectious Diseases at the University of Arizona just prior to being accepted into the Veterinary Medicine program at CSU. In 1999, she graduated from the CSU College of Veterinary Medicine – but she wasn’t done yet. She started a Master’s degree in Epidemiology at CSU only to be interrupted a year later by the birth of her first child. At that point, she decided that small animal practice was safer for her family than playing with BioLevel 4 viruses like Ebola, Hemorrhagic Fever, and Plague. And after a few years working in Arizona, she and her family moved to Colorado Springs in 2006. She has been working in the area ever since.

Dr. Colgate has worked in a number of companion animal veterinary practices in Colorado, Idaho, Montana and New Mexico filling in for Doctors who are sick or on vacation. In recent years she has confined her “relief” work to Colorado exclusively to be closer to family, have more time for her pets and to enjoy the many attractions of our area. Dr. Peggy’s current pet family includes some unruly terriers, a turtle and a salamander who is 21 years old! After having worked at some 40 different practices over her career, Dr. Colgate finds that the staff makes or breaks a clinic and says she especially enjoys working at Centennial because of the excellent crew.
