Alyssa started working at Northgate Pet Clinic as a Veterinary Assistant in 2020. She got her initial training as a 68T Veterinary Care Technician through an 11 week course with the United States Army. She has been enlisted since June 2017 and is currently a Specialist rank. Alyssa has 4 crested geckos and an African fat-tailed gecko. What she enjoys most about veterinary medicine is being able to help client’s animals and the sense of community with the clients. Alyssa plans on continuing her education in the Penn Foster Certified Veterinary Technician program.
