Meet Our Doctors

  • Dr.
    Cor VanderWel, DVM

    Dr. Cor developed a love for science & animals while growing up on a farm in southern Wisconsin. He did his pre-vet work at Dordt College and then graduated from Iowa State College of Veterinary Medicine in 1987. Fillmore Veterinary Hospital was founded by Dr. Merle Watts in 1956, and after being here a year, Dr. Cor then bought him out at the end of 1988 and became the sole owner. Dr. Cor loves animals & is fascinated with how they work.  He is also a people-person, and being a small animal practitioner allows him to do both at the same time. 

    Dr. Cor met his wife, Brenda in college and they were married in 1985. She is a Physician’s Assistant at a local family practice.  They have 3 children who are in their 30’s; two are physicians and one is a mechanical engineer. They now have 6 grandchildren and thoroughly enjoy their role as grandparents for these little people. His other interests besides medicine include getting together with family & friends, staying active in his church, reading adventure fiction and anything outside; working around the house, jogging, tandem biking, hiking, and model railroading. He loves living here in Colorado & is thankful every day for health, family & friends, work, and the beautiful state we live in.

  • Dr. Connie Lee, DVM

    Born and raised in California, Dr. Lee attended UC Davis with a Bachelors in Animal Science, earned her DVM at St. George's University in Granada and finished her education at the University of Pennsylvania. 

    For the last ten years she worked in Michigan where she enjoyed treating dogs, cats, and exotic animals. A great opportunity came along that brought her family back west in the summer of 2022. 

    When she is not working, she is spending time with her husband, two kids, and two dogs. They love to explore the outdoors, enjoy new cuisines and the occasional musical theatre. 

  • Dr.
    Amanda Hensen, DVM

    Growing up competing in El Paso County 4-H allowed for Dr. Hensen to discover her passion for animals and taught her the basic skills she needed to become a veterinarian. She also focused on animal welfare and western heritage while promoting the El Paso County Fair and the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo as a rodeo queen.  Dr. Hensen graduated Magna cum Laude from Colorado State University with Bachelor of Science degrees with Honors in both Animal Science and Equine Science, and minors in Biomedical Science and Business Administration. She then completed her Veterinary Business Certificate with Honors and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Midwestern University in Phoenix, Arizona. 

    Being a Colorado Springs native, Dr. Hensen is excited to be back home after pursuing her educational endeavors. She is very excited about joining the Fillmore Veterinary Team to focus on high quality medicine with a family-friendly atmosphere. Dr. Hensen’s professional interests include pathology, epidemiology, giant breed dog care, and preventative medicine, and she takes pride in connecting with clients and their beloved pets in the exam room. Outside of the clinic, she enjoys spending time with her family and her hobby farm including horses, dogs who might as well be horses, a miniature horse who should be considered a dog, cats, goats, and a pot-bellied pig!
