Alyssa Kaplan, Veterinary Assistant

Some people have a positive outlook and a lot of energy – then there is Alyssa! She is a Junior Technician who joined our staff in 2014. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Child & Adolescent Development, and is currently enrolled in the RVT (Registered Veterinary Technician) Program at Pierce College. But her excellent credentials do not begin to describe or define her. We knew the minute we interviewed her that her incredible motivation, interest and caring personality would become a treasure for our clients and their pets.

Alyssa describes herself as ‘power hungry,’ noting that her favorite thing about her job is “having the power to aid in making patients feel better, tending to boarders - making them feel more comfortable - and getting them to eat when they are in an unfamiliar place.” The ‘power’ to give to others is arguably the greatest power of all, which makes her very powerful indeed! She and Significant Other, Brandon, live with a colorful variety of pets: Suzi (not to be confused with the Doctor with the same name), a six-year old Terrier mix, Roxy, a seven-year old Chihuahua mix and Olive, a one-year old Jack Russell. Alyssa tells us, “Suzi is my wing-man, and would go everywhere with me if she could. Olive is new to us but makes sure she sleeps next to me as close as possible every night. Suzi and Olive love to play together.” When she finds personal time, Alyssa can be found in Zumba class – or hiking with her pups. All we can say about Alyssa is, “you’re gonna LOVE her!”
