Clinic Cat

Meow!  Woody came to us in March of 2013 by way of some wonderful clients who rescued him.  Boy-howdy did this hospital need a clinic kitty!  Woody is a sweet maine coon mix who lost his leg in an accident but while he is a tri-pod kitty that doesn’t slow him down a lick!  He has become the love of all our lives (don’t tell our home fur babies!) and we couldn’t imagine a lunch break or meeting without his input.  You have only to look into his gorgeous green eyes to see why we are helpless to his charms.  Woody hangs out mostly in the office area and break room upstairs with our practice manager, where he is especially helpful with the paperwork!


Practice Manager

Taylor’s mom knew she was in trouble when at the age of three Taylor found and brought home an Irish Wolf Hound. “Can we keep him?” were probably her first words. Love and compassion for animals fueled her desire to foster and care for every stray that entered her life. Today as Practice Manager for CVAC, Taylor gets to blend her two passions, pets and people, into one amazing career.

At home, along with her husband and son, Taylor has a very spoiled cat affectionately known as “Ms Thang”, a cohort of small animals and fish and an African Spur tortoise named Beaches. When not at work, you can find Taylor out enjoying this amazing state by biking, hiking, camping, running and fishing. In addition, she volunteers in our community and at her church.


Facilities Coordinator

Born and raised in Anchorage, Ryan was on skis as soon as he could walk. Harnessed to his Dad, Ryan zoomed all over Mt. Alyeska in Girdwood – maybe it was this experience that made Ryan want to follow his Dad into the veterinary field?  As soon as he got his driver’s license Ryan started working at CVAC and has been a part of the team ever since.  Ryan loves to learn new things and as such he is cross trained to multiple roles in the clinic.  He is a bit of a cat/dog whisperer and enjoys bonding with and caring for our patients.  Ryan is especially attentive to Woody our clinic kitty – during lunch breaks they can be found hanging out solving the problems of the world.  Ryan is currently working on his undergraduate degree at UAA focusing on mathematics and statistics.


Client Service Representative

Linda moved to Alaska sight unseen in 1993 and knew she had found the place to settle down and raise her family. Linda worked in a variety of positions while her children were growing up; always looking to combine her love of animals and nature with her commitment to increasing awareness and understanding of wildlife and the protection of our wilderness. When Linda is not busy helping our clients and their pets at the front desk, she loves to spend time with her family, play her guitar and root for her favorite sports team (Go Cubs!).  We can also add walking her dog to her list of favorite activities as Linda recently rescued a mini dachshund/chihuahua mix named Tikka.  While the two are still getting to know each other, Linda is already wondering: who rescued who?


Client Service Representative

Danna was born in the lower 48 but has spent most of her life in Alaska. She enjoys spending time outside but also can be found indoors cuddled up with her husband watching Netflix or reading a good book. Her love of animals brought her to College Village in January of 2019 and she has enjoyed being able to see the fury, scaly, and feathery friends that come in to the clinic daily. Danna’s own fur family currently consists of a domestic feline named Midnight and a quirky little poodle mix named Happy. This family will surely expand because she has a soft spot for puppy eyes and all things small and cuddly.
