Alyssa is a kennel assistant with Petersen Pet Hospital.  She graduated from Linn-Mar High school in 2021 and grew up in Cedar Rapids her whole life. Alyssa started her love for animals with her black lab Tess, that is where she developed her dream to work and help animals.

Alyssa is a student at Kirkwood Community College where she’s pursuing her dream of becoming a vet technician.

While going to school in Cedar Rapids, she is living with her family and two dogs, her golden retriever Maggie and her German Shepard Moon.

In her free time, she loves to spend time with her family and taking her dogs on long walks, and spends countless nights in her Jeep taking rides. She is always up for an adventure and meeting new people.
