Alexa grew up in south Florida, but moved to Georgia to attend the University of Georgia in 2011. She graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor's degree in Biology and a minor in Spanish with plans to work in the marine biology field. To further follow her dream, Alexa moved to the Florida Keys and was a research intern at the Dolphin Research Center observing mother and calf development of Bottlenose dolphins. This was where Alexa discovered her interest in dealing with the medical aspect of animal care. She moved back home to Jupiter (yes it's a real town), FL to work at a small animal veterinary hospital to gain experience. In January 2016, Alexa found her way back to Georgia to be closer to her boyfriend who is finishing school in Athens. Currently, she does not have any pets of her own due to a very small apartment, however, she has puppy fever and hopes to adopt one soon. In her spare time, Alexa loves anything outdoors, cooking, and being active.
Why she does this: "I have always had a love for animals and am so excited that I get the chance to help them on a daily basis".
