About Amanda Hensley

Dr. Amanda Hensley is an adventurous scientist, as at home in a barn as on an ice shelf. A Virginia native, she earned her DVM from Ross University and completed her clinical studies at Virginia Tech. She is certified in rehabilitation (CCRT), acupuncture (CVA), and the Human-Animal bond. She’s also studied Chinese herbs and food therapy. Most recently, her intellectual voraciousness led her to earn a Master’s in Public Health (MPH) from the Colorado School of Public Health.

Dr. Hensley has worked in a mixed animal practice in Wyoming and in small animal clinics in Colorado. Most of her veterinary career has been in her own practice as a rehab and acupuncture specialist. Passionate about science communication, she recently shifted her career to focus on medical writing.

On the human side, Dr. Hensley is a fearless leader in STEMM initiatives. In 2018, she was one of 100 women selected for the 4th cohort of Homeward Bound, a year-long leadership and communication training that culminated in a three-week voyage to Antarctica.

When she’s not trekking around the world, Dr. Hensley enjoys her thriving gardens and endless woodworking projects at her Colorado home.

My Dog

My heart dog was a Gordon Setter named Tucker who came to me as a very willful puppy when I was just 19 and had no idea how to deal with such a puppy. He taught me so much and forever changed my trajectory, including leading me to a fulfilling career of giving old dogs new life during their golden years. Without his influence, I would not be who I am today and he will forever hold a huge piece of my heart.
