Alicia is from the small town of Azalia, Indiana, where she grew up on a farm and spent time around all kinds of animals—she even cared for raccoons, squirrels, and a pet deer. Her lifelong love for animals and her innate people skills made one thing very clear: a career in veterinary medicine would suit Alicia perfectly! Her journey has come full circle: she’s a proud member of the hospital’s Veterinary Technician team.
Alicia launched her veterinary career by signing on at a clinic in Indianapolis, where she would remain for the next seven years and learn the ropes of the veterinary profession. After moving thanks to her husband’s job, Alicia continued to develop her Veterinary Technician skills at a hospital in Seymour for six months before looking for her next opportunity—that’s when she found an open position here at the Animal Hospital of Lanesville. Alicia joined the clinic family in the fall of 2017, and has been tending to the area’s pets and animal owners ever since.
In addition to her duties as a Tech, Alicia is in charge of ordering all inventory for the hospital. One of her favorite parts of her job is the skilled, compassionate team she’s fortunate to work alongside every day—she loves that the hospital’s goal is simply to provide what patients and families need, rather than competing with larger companies for revenue or client numbers!
Away from the office, Alicia enjoys spending quality time with her family; together, they enjoy visiting flea markets, festivals, and yard sales on the weekends. She and her husband share their home with seven cats—Dee Dee, Dot, Judy, Tracey, Frank, Karma, and The Bean—as well as a pair of dogs named Scrappy Dap and Stryker James, three hamsters who go by Queen, Elsa, and Anna, and two large aquariums of fish.
