    Alece has been in the veterinary community for over 20 years. She began her career as a Veterinary Technician but soon found an interest in Hospital Management. Alece began her career with VCA at West Shore Animal Hospital in 2006 where she spent 4 years as  Hospital Manager. Alece is thrilled to  have recently rejoined the team at VCA West Shore after spending 3 years at a General Practice / Emergency Hopsital in Springfield, PA. She is dedicated and passionate about providing all patients and clients the highest level of care.

    Alece shares her home with her husband Brian, their three Pulik, Stella, Rocket and Charlotte, and three feline companions, Frankie, Blossom and Stuart. In her spare time Alece enjoys competing in confirmation and herding events with Rocket and Charlotte. She is also an avid hockey fan and spends many weekends supporting the Hershey Bears and Washington Capitals.

    Special note from Alece: I truly love being a hospital manager and the interactions I have with our patients and clients. Nothing makes me happier than to see their smiling faces and wagging tails as they walk through our door. I never look at what I do as a job, because it is my passion.
