Alyssa grew up on a small dairy farm in Scipio, New York. At a very young age she was riding horses and milking cows. Her passion and curiosity for veterinary medicine began during those young years when she would spend lots of her time nursing tiny barn kittens back to health.
Alyssa graduated from Alfred State College in 2016 with a Veterinary Technology degree, and started working at Brookside Veterinary Clinic immediately after.
Alyssa has a golden retriever named Reyna and a long-haired flame point named Oliver. She enjoys country music concerts, hiking with her dog, horseback riding, and playing soccer.
