PAWS Team

 

Alyson 

Alyson has always had an eclectic mix of pets as a child and knew that someday she would have a career working with animals. Alyson entered the veterinary industry in 2000.   Despite being in the field for many years, continuing education is very important to Alyson.  Alyson is constantly attending online seminars and continuing education to stay up to date on veterinary technology and she is the lead technician at PAWS.  

She has a strong interest in canine behavior and nursing care. She treats each patient as if it were her own. Never enough cuddles in a work day.  Alyson has a wonderful way of allowing each pets' personality to be respected in the veterinary environment.  Calming the most fearful dog and respecting the boundaries of aggressive dogs.  

She is owned by 3 Australian Cattle Dogs....Cattle Brats as she lovingly calls them. Her Cattle Dogs were all adopted through ACDRA.org, a rescue that she remains very active with by fostering, transporting and helping out in other ways.

In her spare time she loves creating a unique mix of art, hiking with her dogs, hanging with her grandchildren, kayaking and just enjoying the quiet of her home in the woods.
 

Alexandria

After graduating, Alex found herself presented with the opportunity to start a career in the veterinary field. This career path quickly moved her from a role as a CSR to the primary Veterinary Assistant at a small veterinary practice.  

Alex has always had a love and compassion for animals but took a break from critter care to start a family! Her main focus for years was her family, raising two extraordinary kids...Lukis and Leigha.  She continues to juggle family life but has plunged head first into her new roles at PAWS.

Along with the active life of a working mom she enjoys rescue work, fostering and bottle feeding puppies.  She shares her home with Cro, the black lab and hunting buddy of her husband.  Oliver Franklin aka "Chicken Wing" is her snuggle buddy Chihuahua and Maui is her very quirky Chihuahua mix.  Rounding out her menagerie with three chickens...Dipper, Chicken Little and Big Foot.  In all of her "spare" time Alex enjoys photography, crocheting, creating beautiful hand crafted farm house signs as well as supporting her daughter's softball goals and playing Pokemon Go with her son! 

Tracie Lynn

Tracie graduated from Albright College with a BS in Psychobiology.  Shortly after graduating she fell in love with her work with animals in the veterinary environment.  With 25 years experience in all aspects of the field she most enjoys the care of pediatric, senior and special needs patients...particularly grumpy cats!  As PAWS practice manager her focus is to build a family like setting for all that enter the practice.  Creating an environment where the patients and their people know they are heard, well-cared for and valued.

When not at work Tracie is busy spending quality time with the most supportive family and friends anyone could ask for!  Her free time is filled with continued care of animals as she runs a small non-profit animal rescue/sanctuary and is an active foster for Australian Cattle Dog Rescue Association.  Tracie has a passion for Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) of feral kitties and creating unique cakes for family and friend's special occasions.  Tracie is most happy when surrounded by her family, friends and her fuzzy, furry and feathered babies!
