Alena received her Associate in Applied Science from Fox College Veterinary Technology Institute in 2013. She was the secretary of the Veterinary Technology club as well as a kennel supervisor and animal trainer during her time there. She developed her passion for caring for animals at a young age when she used to go to work with her babysitter who was employed at Schererville Animal Control. After spending time there, Alena fell in love with helping animals, as you can tell from her passion she brings to work with her every day here at SJAC!
Alena has had her heart set on working at SJAC since she interned here during high school. She worked as a receptionist while she went to tech school and she has been working here ever since. We are very lucky to have her!
A fun fact you might not know about Alena is that her fiance proposed to her here at SJAC because this is where they first met and got to know each other as she care for his sick dog. They have plenty of pets between the two, Lucy the rat terrier, Gracie the dachshund, Archie the yorkie, and their cats Fletcher and Forrest!
