Dr. Zubrod has been working in Grand Junction, CO for the last 7 years and is pleased to come back to her Cheyenne roots. Ruby’s family originally homesteaded in Cheyenne in 1906. They owned the Plain’s Dairy that was a staple of Cheyenne for many years. Her great-grandfather, Neils Christensen, was the engineer responsible for the 4-8-8-4 Big Boy #4004 that is now located in our beautiful Holliday Park. Kody’s family came to Cheyenne in 1978 and co-owned Zubrod Brother’s Meatmarket. Dr. Zubrod’s history in Wyoming is very rich and she feels this helps her to have a unique connection with many of her patients since they can share similar memories.
