In her teen years, Alie spent her time as a dual-enrolled student who earned her Associates of Science in Biology prior to graduating from Coeur d'Alene High School in 2014. She returned to Montana to complete her BS in Biotechnology at UM. With the end goal of applying for Pharmacology school, she had a change of heart during her senior year and applied to a Veterinary Technology program. She earned her Certified Veterinary Assistant title in 2017, and graduated as a Certified Veterinary Technician in 2019. Alie has been at Pruyn Veterinary Hospital since joining us in 2015. A few of her professional interests include the human-animal bond, anesthesiology, emergency/critical care, orthopedics, multi-modal pain management, and exemplary patient care. Alie's future plans include completing a bachelor's degree as a Veterinary Technologist, and specializing in either emergency/critical care medicine, anesthesiology, or both! In her spare time, Alie enjoys relaxing with her fiancé, Connor, their two dachshunds, Ellie and Gromit, and Australian Shepherd, Groot.
