Alyssa, a Madison native, studied performing arts with a minor in radio broadcasting at Colombia College in Chicago. After returning to Madison she started her interest in the animal field, gaining employment at a local veterinary clinic. Alyssa has held a number of jobs related to the field including dog walking, pet sitting, veterinarian reception & assisting, and OSHA coordinator for a veterinary clinic. Her life has always been filled with animals, even before she joined the MVS team in January 2020 as a client care specialist. In October of 2020 she started working part time with the dermatology team and, as of December of 2020, became their full time assistant. Alyssa is excited to pursue gaining even more knowledge as she continues her career with Madison Veterinary Specialists and Emergency.
Alyssa currently lives in Madison with her black Domestic Short Hair cat, Gir, who she rescued in 2016 when Gir was 6 years old. In her spare time, Alyssa enjoys conventions, cosplaying, game nights with friends, kayaking, cooking, and baking.
