Alyson has always had a love for animals since a very young age when she would rescue all the kittens and dogs in the neighborhood. She started her career in 1998 as a Veterinary Assistant at Antelyes Animal Hospital which is now a part of VCG. She attained her AAS in Veterinary Technology from LaGuardia Community College and and received her NYS Veterinary Technician license in 2004. She continued her career in general practice then specialty medicine where she found a love of internal medicine. Eventually Alyson branched out into veterinary management where she discovered her passion for leadership and mentorship. In her free time Alyson enjoys running and spending time with her two amazing children, while they wait for a dog to choose them as their forever home.
