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.

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?

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.
Alicia has been apart of our CVAC team for more than 15 years. As a little girl growing up in a household of pets, she always felt the strong desire to help them in any way she could. After spending her 8th grade career day at Palmer Veterinary Clinic, Alicia was hooked! She obtained her Associate’s Degree in Veterinary Technology from Pierce College, Washington in 2005 then immediately moved back to her home state of Alaska and joined the CVAC team. When not at the clinic, she enjoys annual family hunting trips and all the hiking and camping that can be possibly squeezed into an Alaskan summer. Her fur babies include her hiking buddy Kuro and a 13 year old kitty named Mau Mau.
