Dr. Balius is from Jackson, Mississippi. She completed her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Mississippi State University in 2021. Having a strong passion for emergency medicine and loving all things outdoors, she found the perfect home in Colorado Springs with Powers Pet Emergency & Specialty Hospital. Dr. Balius’ professional interests include emergency medicine, neurology, Eastern medicine, and above all, high-quality patient care.
Outside of work, Dr. Balius enjoys kayaking, fishing, camping, and playing outside with her three scruffy, black dogs: Sigrid, Ava, and Loki. She also has two awesome cats, Jetpack and Lilah. In addition to her pets and the outdoors, she thoroughly enjoys football season and all forms of friendly competition. She will always love her Mississippi roots but is thrilled to continue her journey as a part of the Colorado Springs community.
