Alyssa has known her whole life she wanted to work with animals. She volunteered at a clinic in high school and from there decided to attend Durham College for Animal Care. Upon graduation she worked at an emergency veterinary clinic, but is now glad to be back in a small practice. She hopes to one day go back to school for veterinary technology. When not at the clinic she enjoys spending time with her boyfriend, her cat Nala and potcake dog Shilo.
