Brooke began her career in the veterinary field because of a lifelong love of animals and medicine.  This love is driving her to pursue a specialized degree in Oncology, or perhaps even becoming an Oncologist.  Her favorite animal is the dog, including her two, “Vash the Stampede” and “Sissie”.  Welcome Brooke!

Outside of work, “D” enjoys hunting, fishing and camping, or staying home and taking care of her dogs “Taz” and “Onyx” and her many reptiles. “D” has a hard time choosing a favorite animal, because she loves them all, but she does have a soft spot for dogs, savannah monitors, bearded dragons, tortoises and geckos!

Alyssa joined Idaho Vet in 2015 after completing her externship as a Certified Veterinary Technician from Broadway University. She has always been interested in medicine, and fell in love with being surrounded by animals after working on a ranch in high school. After that, veterinary medicine was a natural choice.

Alyssa enjoys the variety of patients we see on a daily basis; swans, hamsters, tree frogs, birds of prey, reptiles, and of course cats and dogs! The most rewarding part of her career is working with doctors to get patients back to 100% and seeing the animal’s excitement to see their family.

Madi joined IVmsH’s front staff in February 2016. She’s always been interested in the veterinary field and being around animals. She loves being exposed to all their different personalities. Madi is looking forward to learning about the variety of critters we see on a daily basis, especially the ones she has no prior knowledge of.

Madi has a hard time settling on just one favorite animal; a dog is always a great companion, but a peacock is such a beautiful animal! She has one companion, “Kiva”, a 3year old Chocolate Lab/Husky mix.
