Our Careteam

Alexis
Veterinary Assistant
Alexis was born and raised right here in Las Vegas, where her grandmother was her earliest and most powerful influence. Alexis’ grandmother always encouraged her to take in strays and nurse them back to health—these experiences left a permanent impression. Alexis has been passionate about helping pets ever since!

Alexis was still a teenager when she first began working as a receptionist in a local animal hospital. After moving to Reno to attend college, she returned home and signed on at the PIMA Medical Institute to study veterinary medicine. Alexis graduated as a Certified Veterinary Assistant, and was thrilled to join the Aloha Animal Hospital family in the fall of 2017 on the recommendation of a friend.

Around the clinic, Alexis especially enjoys helping with surgeries and learning about the different techniques and procedures she can use to return a pet to full health. She’s also fond of the fast-paced challenges of emergency medicine. Most of all, Alexis loves to meet pet owners and their companions on a daily basis!

Aside from her interests in animal care, Alexis is an avid photographer and particularly likes taking pictures of children and animals together. She lives with her older sister and their three cats—Oscar, Missy, and Pickles—as well as a rescued dog, Belle.
Amy
Client Care Specialist
Amy was born a natural caregiver; it’s simply the essence of who she is! She’s adored caring for both people and animals ever since she was a child, and is thrilled to make a difference as a member of the Aloha Animal Hospital family.

A native of Youngstown, Ohio, Amy is currently attending school to study nursing. She first heard about an opening here at Aloha Animal Hospital through a coworker, and was thrilled to join the team shortly after applying. Amy especially enjoys interacting directly with clientele and their beloved animal companions.

Amy lives with her wonderful daughter, Carly, and plans on adopting a dog in the near future. When she has a spare moment between family life, work, and her school studies, she likes traveling, camping, and hiking through the beautiful scenery of Nevada.
Angela
Veterinary Assistant
Angela always wanted to be able to help those that can’t speak for themselves. Coupled with the fascination she felt when watching Animal Planet programming at home, she realized that a career in veterinary care made perfect sense! Angela hasn’t looked back since—she’s proud to now serve as a part of Aloha Animal Hospital’s Veterinary Assistant team.

Angela was born in Detroit but moved with her family here to Las Vegas at the age of five. She attended the PIMA Veterinary Assistant program and took an externship at a local animal hospital, where she would hone her skills for the next six years. Angela then moved to Reno and worked in specialty surgery before relocating again to Seattle, Washington to perform emergency work in the Intensive Care Unit.

After a time spent focusing on general practice and supervising surgery and dental procedures at a clinic in New Jersey, Angela returned to Las Vegas to be closer to family. She joined the Aloha Animal Hospital in January of 2018 as a Veterinary Assistant. Medically, Angela likes the fast pace of emergency care, and she’s also fond of anesthesia work and the learning opportunities it provides.

At home, Angela lives with one pet of her own: Dippy, a cat who has a unique penchant for biting the bridges of her human subjects’ noses.
Ann
Client Care Specialist
Ann grew up in rural New England, where she spent plenty of time exploring the forests, fields, and ponds of the area. These experiences, combined with her adoration of the family pets, made one thing clear: Ann wanted to do everything she could to help the earth’s creatures! For her, a career in veterinary medicine simply makes sense.

After earning her college degree in science, Ann went to work as a Veterinary Technician for a friend who had opened her very own animal hospital in Connecticut. Ann cared for pets there for several years before moving to Europe, where she continued to gain experience in the veterinary world. Next, she returned to the United States and settled in the Las Vegas area, joining the clinic family in the fall of 2016 on the recommendation of a friend, Aloha Animal Hospital’s very own Julie.

Ann lives with two rescued dogs at home: a poodle named Roxy, who loves exploring during her long walks; and Little Una May, a Maltipoo, who loves to cuddle up next to Ann while she’s reading. When she isn’t enjoying her own companions’ company or tending to the area’s pets here at the hospital, Ann likes writing—she was even asked to read her own published short story on NPR!—and organizing donation drives for local animal shelters in order to give back to the community’s needy pets.
Bill
Animal Care Specialist
For as long as he can remember, Bill has had an interest in the medical field. He’s also owned various animals his entire life. Why not combine these passions, Bill thought, in a rewarding and challenging career?

Bill is a Las Vegas native and first joined the Aloha Animal Hospital family in December of 2014. He’s particularly fond of assisting with surgeries and meeting the multitude of animal personalities that visit the hospital.

In his time away from work, Bill enjoys gaming and playing music—he’s able to play five different instruments, and has even written his own choral piece! He shares his home with three dogs, a cat, a pair of rats, a bearded dragon, a rabbit, and 16 desert tortoises.
Candise

Candise grew up right here in Las Vegas, where she always had at least one pet around the house. She’s had a soft spot in her heart for animals ever since she was a little girl—working with the area’s pets as a Licensed Veterinary Technician is a dream come true!

After working in the hospitality industry for a time, Candise knew that she wanted a change. That’s when she decided to take the leap into veterinary medicine—she enrolled in the College of Southern Nevada’s veterinary technology program, working graveyard shifts overnight to gain real-world experience during her studies. Now, she’s a Licensed Veterinary Technician and has been serving the pets and animal owners of her hometown here at Aloha Animal Hospital since September of 2017.

When she isn’t tending to her own pets’ needs at home or caring for animals here at the hospital, Candise enjoys working around the house, gardening, reading, exercising, cooking, and baking.
Dani
Veterinary Assistant
Dani decided at a very young age that she would one day work in the field of animal care; taking care of everything from cats, dogs, and rabbits to guinea pigs, rats, hamsters, and fish made a lasting impression. For her, veterinary medicine was simply the only choice that made sense! Dani gets to help not only pets, but their loving families as well, as a member of the Aloha Animal Hospital family.

Dani was born here in Las Vegas but also spent many of her formative years growing up in New Jersey.

She and her husband share their home with a Beagle/Pitbull mix who goes by Galahad as well as a bearded dragon named Shenron.
David
Client Care Specialist
David is no stranger to caring for animals since he grew up on a farm in his home state of Oklahoma. At one point his family also raised Shar Pei dogs and they took every litter to the local veterinarian’s office shortly after the pups were born. It was during those many office visits that David realized something: working in the field of veterinary medicine would be a challenging, rewarding, and fun career! He’s been dedicated to the animal-care world ever since.

David’s veterinary career began in dog kennels, and he first started here at Aloha Animal Hospital in the boarding section when his daughter started daycare in 2010. Now, he’s a Client Care Specialist and greets every visitor to the clinic—human and otherwise—with a welcoming smile.

David and his wife, Charlene, have two wonderful daughters: Marissa is an aspiring actress, and young Olivia is already writing fantastic stories. The family shares their home with Tyson, a pug who constantly wants to be next to David, as well as Trixie the lazy Chihuahua.

Outside of his interests in the animal-care world, David is a fan of mathematics and has a special passion for teaching the subject to others. He even used to serve as a math tutor at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas and as a teaching assistant with the Clark County School District’s adult education program!

Samantha
Client Care Specialist
One day, Sam found a cat on the side of the freeway with an injured leg. She took it to a nearby animal hospital to get the poor critter medical attention. When she got to her place of employment later that day, Sam found herself bothered by the fact that many of her coworkers seemed to think she should have left the cat on the road. It was then that she realized she wanted to devote herself to helping pets live the best lives they possibly could!

Sam is a Las Vegas native and began her journey at another local pet clinic, where she worked for three years. She had heard great things about Aloha Animal Hospital from a friend, and when an opportunity opened up, she jumped at her chance. Now, Sam is a proud member of the clinic’s front-desk team! She likes learning new things in the medical side of the clinic and is particularly interested in microbiology, medication, and parasitology.
