Tony Bartels


Tony Bartels, DVM, MBA, is a 2012 Colorado State University graduate and employee of the Veterinary Information Network (VIN). He and his wife have more than $400,000 of veterinary school debt they manage using the federal income-driven repayment plans. By necessity (and now obsession), his professional activities and interests include researching and speaking on veterinary student debt, providing guidance to colleagues on loan repayment strategies, contributing to the VIN Foundation cost of education map and student loan repayment simulator initiatives, as well as small and exotic animal practice.

When he’s not staring holes into his colleague’s student loan data, he enjoys camping and exploring Colorado with his wife Audra, a small animal internal medicine specialist practicing in Denver. Other family members include two rescued canines, Herbie and Addi, as well as a tortoise named Leo, who now occupies a rather large territory in Arizona. During his rare instances of free time, you might find Dr. Bartels playing ice hockey or fly fishing.
