Born in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada… Alanna moved to Clearwater, Florida early in life. She has always been an animal lover and has had at least one pet. She began her career volunteering for a number of different shelters and before long she was working as a receptionist at a vets office! She became part of the team with AHVC and absolutely LOVES IT!!!!
Alanna has a cat named Maia and a Cheagle (Beagle/Chihuahua mix) named Dexter. She enjoys baking, horror movies and spending time with her family and friends!
Andrea has been in the small animal veterinary field since 1997 and also has experience with birds and exotics since 2003. Andrea has 2 dogs of her own, a Chihuahua, named Haus and a Pit Bull named Marley. She also has 2 cats and a Ball Python snake. Her hobbies are canoeing with her dogs, boating and motorcycle riding with her friends. She also enjoys staying at home watching movies and playing pool. We feel so blessed to have her at AHVC as she has become such an asset to all the staff and clients.
Colleen joined AHVC in December, 2012. Born in Philly moved to New Jersey and then to Pinellas County, Florida where she was raised. Colleen has a lifetime of experience caring for and owning horses, dogs, cats, snakes, lizards, fish and birds. WOW, that’s a long list! Colleens hobbies include volunteering for a Pit Bull rescue group called Rugaz Rescue, Inc. Also, arts and crafts, reading, movies going to the beach, training rescue dogs and just hanging out with her animals and fostering for Rugaz. She has 3 Chihuahuas named Neo, Luna & Tekno and an American Bully named Stabler. Plus, 2 cats – Flynn and Sheldon. We are so happy to have her at AHVC! Her knowledge and experience is 2nd to NONE!
Tracy, who is born and raised in Florida, lives with her 2 daughters and 7 pets. She has been in the veterinary field since the mid 90’s and couldn’t imagine doing anything else!
Outside of work she enjoys going to the beach, movies, car events and horseback riding.
Tracy enjoys the challenge of trying to figure out the problems of each patient, since they do not talk or “tell” you what is wrong. It takes LOTS of training and compassion to care for pets and she is one of the BEST! We are so fortunate to have her with us at AHVC!
Jacki was born in Illinois with a HUGE passion for animals! She started taking horse riding lessons at the age of two and rode competitively for over 2 decades! Her family moved to Florida when she was eleven, but that was just the beginning of her travels…
In 2015, Jacki went oversees and studied at the University of Florence in Italy. Traveling around Europe for months, she finally found her way back to Florida and recently graduated from the University of South Florida with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology.
Joining our team in January, 2016, Jacki fills the clinic with JOY and a BIG BEAUTIFUL SMILE each day!
