Simon grew up in Colorado on a farm with goats, horses, cattle, pigs and many other animals. He was very involved in 4H which led to his love of animals and, in turn, veterinary medicine. The veterinarian for his 4H club, Dr. Jim Friedly, allowed Simon to tag along with him on road calls. Eventually, Simon started volunteering in the clinic and he soon became a veterinary assistant, helping with treatments and surgeries on all animals, big and small. Simon continued working at Countryside Veterinary Clinic while attending Adams State College in Alamosa, Colorado. At his job, he learned a lot about dedication and hard work, sometimes spending 72 hours straight at the clinic sleeping there to keep an eye on a horse recovering from colic surgery or a very sick dog in need of constant overnight care. After graduating from Adams State with a double major in Biology and Chemistry, he pursued his love of veterinary medicine and was accepted at Colorado State University’s School of Veterinary Medicine. Simon continued to work through school, volunteering with 4H groups and working at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital as a surgery technician, large animal technician, and radiology technician. After graduating in 2003, he decided to move to New Hampshire and see a new part of the country. He started working at Wadleigh’s Falls Veterinary Clinic under the tutelage of Dr. Irving Salkovitz. Simon learned much about medicine and surgery for both large and small animals. He found he truly enjoyed equine dentistry, small ruminant medicine, and small animal surgery as well as practicing medicine with caring guardians and their pets. After having his first child, Elayna, Simon decided that he needed to change his life in order to spend more time with his family. Deerfield Veterinary Clinic was begun. His goal is to practice high quality, affordable medicine in a caring, compassionate atmosphere. With the house attached, his family will always be around and he will always be available for his patients’ needs. He hopes that you come by, meet his family, and take a tour of the clinic sometime.
