Registered Veterinary Nurse
When Alli was three years old, Santa surprised her with a puppy, whom she named Brutus. She vividly recalls waking up early on Saturday mornings and accompanying her mom to his vet appointments. She remembers being in awe of the clinic and everything the vet was doing. Brutus became Alli’s very best friend, and sparked her interest in dogs, the human-animal bond, and veterinary medicine. As a veterinary nurse here at HVHC, Alli honors the memory of Brutus every day by helping our patients live happier, healthier lives!
Alli worked at a vet clinic during high school and college, and fell in love with the ever-changing, fast-paced environment. She has always been fascinated by medicine and science, and has an unquenchable desire to learn new things, both of which have served her well throughout her career. Alli joined the Hodes Veterinary Health Center team in February of 2023. Clinically, she has a special interest in internal medicine and enjoys “solving the puzzle” of illnesses and diseases through diagnostic testing.
Outside of work, Alli resides with her husband, whom she married in May of 2021. Together, they have three dogs: Harvey, a miniature Schnauzer/Yorkie mix, who has been with Alli since college; Bandit, a German shepherd, and Smokey, a lab/husky mix, both of whom came into the marriage with Alli’s husband. Harvey’s favorite activities include playing ball, going for walks, and hogging the bed. Bandit is a wise soul who loves football, belly rubs, and pouncing on ice cubes. Smokey is into critical thinking, problem-solving, and eating anything and everything, which makes him a bit of a troublemaker.
When she’s not busy at work or playing with her pups, Alli enjoys spending time with family, staying active, and being outdoors.
