Dr. Karla Lombana was born and raised in Salt Lake City, UT and fell in love with horses early on. She started her equine journey in the show ring, and has ridden and shown a variety of horses and disciplines over the years. Owning her own horses was always a priority for Karla, and she is certain that her work ethic and responsibility come from her equine foundation. Karla completed her undergraduate education at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon where she double majored in Biology and Science studies, with minors in Chemistry and German. She relocated to Colorado and completed Veterinary School at Colorado State University, graduating in May of 2013. While in veterinary school she performed stem cell research at the Equine Orthopaedic Research Centre. Research has always been intriguing to Karla, and she has been involved in multiple projects and papers, ranging from neuroendocrine pathways to equine stem cell growth. Karla was well aware of the challenges equine specific practice would present, and elected to complete an internship after completing veterinary school. She selected the internship at Arizona Equine Medical and Surgical Centre in Gilbert, where she met Lindsey. Dr. Lombana has multiple equine veterinary interests. She enjoys all aspects of routine ambulatory practice, but truly excels at lameness diagnostics and advanced regenerative procedures. Her experience with stem cells and other biological agents is unlike any other veterinarian in Tucson.
