Credentialed Veterinary Technician Supervisor LVT

Alexis was born in Mount Vernon Washington, but grew up in central and southern California. She attended the University of California, Santa Cruz (just south of San Francisco) where she received her Bachelors of Science in Marine Biology. Her main scientific interests are research based on isotope analysis and fisheries management. After graduating, she spent the next two years in Alaska working on commercial fishing boats for the National Marine Fisheries Service as an observer collecting management data. She was in need for a change of pace and to be around living animals, which brought her to VCA Alderwood Companion! She spends most of her free time hiking, fishing, hunting, and discovering new craft breweries. At this time her only animal companion is Francisco Optimator-her bearded dragon, but in the coming years she is hoping to find a Chesapeake Bay Retriever to raise and take on her outdoor adventures!
