Certified Veterinary TechnicianAlisa Montague
Alisa is pictured with her 4 cats she fostered since they were 2 days old. The kittens were not able to find homes, so they found a forever home with Alisa. The rest of the family at home includes a Pekingese named Wicket, a Bearded Dragon named Xena, and 2 guinea pigs, Shelly and Flay.
Alisa knew she wanted to work in the veterinary field since she was 5 years old and completed that goal in 2007 when she graduated from the Minnesota School of Business with a degree in veterinary technology and started working for VCA that same year. Exotic pets have always been a passion of hers and she was very thankful to have started her dream job straight out of school.
Outside of work Alisa enjoys reading, hiking, any and all movies, sketching/painting, gardening, and works with kids ranging in preschoolers to 12th graders at her local church.
