Ever since Elyse could walk, she remembers following after all the pets her family had. The relationships she fostered with animals during her childhood helped shape er into the person she is today and helped her find her place in veterinary medicine. As a vet tech, Elyse has been able to combine her passion for medicine with her lifelong adoration of animals, and as it turns out, it’s the perfect fit!
After graduating high school, Elyse went on to study human medicine. Four years in, she decided to make the switch from two-legged patients to four, and she couldn’t be happier. Professionally, Elyse has a particular interest in working with felines. There’s just nothing better than seeing an anxious cat start to relax when you treat them with kindness, patience and understanding.
At home, Elyse has one rescue dog named Luna, who is her very best friend; four cats – Sunny, Mama, Cherry, and Jasper; and a leopard gecko named Zesty. In her spare time, Elyse enjoys watching things grow, so she has many houseplants that she tends to. She also recently started her own herb/vegetable garden.
