Alessandra grew up in the Bronx, NY and worked as a veterinary assistant for several years before going back to school and becoming a Licensed Veterinary Technician in 2008. She worked at the Animal Medical Center in New York City for 10 years with equal time spent between the Emergency and Critical Care department and Internal Medicine. In 2017, she accepted a management position at the ASPCA Animal Hospital in New York City where she gained experience in shelter medicine, forensics, and animal cruelty cases. During this time she also became certified as a level 2 Fear Free Professional. In May 2021, Alessandra relocated to Florida and joined the Atlantic Animal Hospital family. Her obsession with Chihuahua’s is apparent and her two fur children, Little and Pants, are perfect examples as to why!
