Niky grew up in rural Wisconsin, about 20 miles east of Hudson in a small farming community with her parents, sister, and many cats and dogs. Growing up surrounded by animals helped mold Niky into who she is today and set the expectation that because animals are family, they should be treated with love and respect. After a few stints in education and human medicine, Niky found her way back to her calling and hasn’t looked back since!
Rachel grew up in rural Minnesota with her parents and two older brothers. As a kid, she always loved animals and even dreamed of one day becoming a veterinarian. As she grew older, her passion for pet care also blossomed and pushed her further toward her goal of working with animals professionally. As a veterinary technician here at River Ridge Pet Clinic, Rachel has finally found her true calling in life and is loving every minute of it!
Alyssa grew up idolizing her older sister, who is a nurse. While she felt a pull to follow in her sister’s footsteps, she also knew that it wasn’t human patients she preferred to work with, but rather those of the four-legged variety. As a veterinary technician, Alyssa gets to experience the best of both worlds, helping animals while also helping their humans. It’s a win-win!
Animals have always played a central role in Cassidy’s life. Growing up, her family worked with a local rescue organization. Seeing all the precious souls who needed her family’s help and working hard to win their trust instilled a passion within Cassidy that still burns to this day. As one of the receptionists here at RRPC, Cassidy’s friendly face and welcoming nature set the stage for a positive patient experience.
Alissa grew up in a family that bred dogs, so she’s technically been working with animals since birth. When she was a small child, she helped her grandfather rescue a baby deer that had been orphaned. They bottle-fed and raised him until he was healthy enough to be relocated to a nearby deer farm. This experience sparked an interest in Alissa that would ultimately shape her career path.
