  • Alice

    Dr. Alice grew up in Lexington, Massachusetts and completed her undergraduate studies at Middlebury College. She traveled down south to attend veterinary school at the University of Pennsylvania where she studied small animal and equine medicine and finally understood why people love Spring (no mud!).

She now lives in Fletcher with her husband, coonhound mix Clark (pictured above) and two cats, Pepper and Benton.
