Dr. Alice grew up in the mountains of North Carolina on a small farm and then studied biology and sustainable agriculture at Warren Wilson College near Asheville, NC. She then completed her veterinary degree at North Carolina State University. As a veterinarian, she very quickly began to realize that she did not have all of the answers with the training she had received. Being a health and fitness enthusiast herself and being the type to want to help her patients reach their highest possible level of health and performance, Dr. Alice began pursuing complementary and alternative medicine techniques to discover new ways to further enrich the lives of her patients and the joy of their human companions.
Dr. Alice is certified in Animal Chiropractic through the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association and did her studies through Parker University in Dallas, Texas. She is also a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist and studied the Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine techniques and Animal Acupuncture through Dr. Shen Xie and the faculty of the Chi Institute of Chinese Medicine in Florida.
When Dr. Alice is not working hard to improve the lives of her patients and the happiness of their humans, you will find her riding her endurance horses, herding sheep with her dogs, rock climbing with her husband, running, and practicing yoga.
