Alicia

Alicia is a 2016 graduate of Truman High School. After which she attended EMU for animal psych for two years and then transferred to HFCC to start pre-reqs for Vet Med with a goal of attending vet school at University of Florida. Since she was a little girl she had great role models that help mold her into who she is today; a sister who is a zoologist and has worked with the conservation of wildlife, a mother who fosters kittens and feral cats, & cousins who have their LVT degree.

Ever since she was younger, Alicia has wanted to become a veterinarian. After high school, she began her vet experience as a vet assistant at a local clinic to gain knowledge and skill to help get acquainted with the field. She spent 1-1/2 years until leaving that job to focus on school. She has also volunteered at a farm for a few months gaining large animal experience. Alicia is currently pursuing a Licensed Veterinary Technician degree at Penn Foster. Her goal is to obtain her LVT degree and then return to HFCC to finish the other half of the Veterinary pre-requisites. Once completed, she plans to move to Florida to pursue vet school. Alicia knows it is a long journey, but is always up for a challenge!

At Southpointe, Alicia works as a veterinary Assistant in the treatment room.

Alicia feels that Southpointe has great teachers that are willing to share their knowledge and feels lucky to have gotten this opportunity. Alicia makes a promise everyday to try her best and do all that she can to help give the best care to every patient that walks through our doors.
