Alicia has always been interested in working with animals – especially dogs. Unfortunately, growing up with a father who was allergic, Alicia had to admire them from afar. This didn’t dampen her passion, though, and her love of animals has led her to a lot of different places, from working at clinics and volunteering at shelters, to fostering dogs, transporting for rescues, and now, as an adult, having her own herd at home. Taking care of animals is what Alicia is meant to do!
When Alicia’s son started college, she felt it was time for her to look for a full-time job. Having worked at veterinary clinics in the past prior to starting a family, she felt that returning to her first love was the perfect path for her to take. As one of our client service representatives, Alicia enjoys being a smiling face or a supportive shoulder for people when they are dealing with tough emotional situations with their pets. She also enjoys getting to spend her days with some amazing animals.
At home, Alicia is happily married to her husband, Brent, with whom she has one son, Judah, and two dogs, Samson and Harrison. Samson is a 75-pound super-mutt who loves hiking with dad and making friends on the trails. Harrison is a Golden Retriever who appreciates anything fluffy and squishy. He always has a “baby” in his mouth wherever he goes.
In her spare time, Alicia loves being creative, whether it’s knitting, crocheting, making pottery, or baking. Her greatest achievement in baking was being featured on a baking competition show on Hulu called Baker’s Dozen

Janette is well-loved by her colleagues as well as our clients and their furry family members.
