Alyssa joined the Animal Eye Care family in the spring of 2019. She is a Washington State native before moving to San Diego, CA, where she graduated from the Pima Medical Inc. Alyssa always had a love for animals and her interest in the veterinary field was sparked during an internship in high school.
She married her high school sweetheart of 10 years who is in the Navy, which brought them to Suffolk, VA in 2015. The couple proudly shares their home with three rescued Siberian Huskies (Miko, Summit, and Juneau) and two cats (Stanley, an Orange Domestic Short Hair, and Prusik, a Maine Coon).
When not at work, you can find Alyssa backpacking, dry land mushing, rock climbing, hiking, camping, fishing, gardening, horseback riding, and anything else that involves the outdoors!
