Receptionist SupervisorAlisha Jones
Alisha is the "face" of our hospital! She is upbeat, friendly, and takes challenges with stride. She first started working for VCA in December of 2011 for about a year, then returned to us in March of 2014, and we are all so grateful that she did! Besides being wonderful to our clients, and keeping our front desk running smoothly, Alisha enjoys photography, traveling, crafting, and camping. Her biggest adventure lies in the near future as she is getting married in the fall of 2016. Alisha is originally from Eagle River, and grew up here with her sister and two brothers. She ventured out for five years and lived in Hawaii, but now back home, she plans to stay for a very long time. Alisha has her Associates Degree in Business Management, and is also a Certified Nutrition Advisor. She has two fur babies; Jake the Bichon Frise, and crazy Dolly the Pit mix that has a taste for treats that she is not suppose to have.
Kayla joined our team in January 2016 as our Receptionist, and is a wonderful addition to VCA Eagle River. She was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, but was raised right here in Alaska. She enjoys movies, crafting, camping and snowboarding, but her favorite past time is spending time with her family. Kayla has a 5 year old son, and a baby girl who is a year and a half. Kayla is in the process of obtaining her arts degree from UAA. She has a love for animals and kids, and her outgoing personality is contagious. Fun Fact: Kayla's favorite desert is orange sherbert and chocolate ice cream cones...not sure if that is at the same time....
Mariah has been with the VCA family since August 2015, and has worked both as a Receptionist, as well as a Kennel Attendant. Mariah is a team player, that is willing to help where ever needed. She was born and raised in Alaska, and loves running, hiking, art, and her guilty pleasure is watching Netflix. She is currently going to college with interest in Veterinary Science. She has one fur baby, Olaf, a two year old Siberian Husky. Fun Fact: Mariah hopes to one day spend a month in Africa and work at an elephant sanctuary.
Isabel always has a smile on her face! She joined us in June of 2014, and is a great asset to our team. She is wonderful with people, and can remember the smallest of details in which makes her a great face at our front desk. Isabel was born in Houston, Texas, and moved to Alaska in 2012. She has special interests in psychology, and different cultures. She enjoys singing, dancing, and plays rugby. She has three brothers and a sister, and was the true "middle" child, and the peacemaker in her family. She has four nieces and four nephews in which she absolutely adores. She has one pet, not a fur baby, but a water baby... a goldfish named Norman. Fun Fact: Although Isabel enjoys singing and dancing...she can't do either.
