Boarding Manager - Holly

Working previously in the field of domestic abuse and sexual assault for almost 20 years and loving it, Holly ultimately found herself emotionally drained. Holly decided she needed to do something that made her happy every day, so she joined our animal care team at Alpine in 2022 and was promoted to manager in 2023. She loves it and feels so lucky that this job allows her to play with doggies and kitties (and the occasional lizard or bunny) for a living. Here, Holly is pictured with her sweet Pittie, “Jenny”, and "Garph", her rescued Schnauzer. Like you, Holly thinks her dogs are perfect. She also has a kitty, but he’s a typical cat and has no interest in family photos. Holly would like Alpine’s pet parents to know that everyone here loves your pet too! Even if your pet is grumpy (because who likes shots?!), everyone at Alpine expresses compassion and love towards even the grumpiest fur baby. In early 2024, Holly obtained her Fear FreeⓇ Boarding and Daycare Certification to expand her knowledge and help make stays more comfortable for pets at their home-away-from-home. Fear Free’s Mission is “to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress in pets by inspiring and educating the people who care for them”. Holly works hard to make sure all pets are cared for as if they were her own, while also providing a clean and safe environment. Holly hopes to meet you and your pets soon!

Desi recently moved to Pullman from Olympia to pursue a bachelor’s degree in human biology, with a goal of attending medical school for a career as a Physician’s Assistant. Desi has an extensive medical background – she has worked in a trauma center ER, volunteered at a fire department, and worked as an EMT at horse shows and drag races. Although she loves taking care of humans, animals are her passion and what calms and relaxes her after a long day. At home, Desi has two children and a Sheltie named “Bentley”, who is a good balance of both sassy and cuddly. In their free time, they go hiking and bike riding, and are always on the hunt for good bubble tea. Desi feels working with animals is special because, although we don’t speak the same language, we are still able to communicate and understand each other. She enjoys getting close to every animal she works with and learning their unique quirks. Desi looks forward to loving our clients’ animals as if they were her own, while they are in our care.

Amelia is originally from Monroe, about 40 minutes from Seattle. She has known she wanted to work with animals since she was about eight years old. Amelia grew up having pets and now has two cats, “Dude” and “Lilith”, and two guinea pigs, “Crunk” and “Smudge”. Amelia’s first job was as a dog exerciser at a very large kennel when she was 16. She has also volunteered at an animal shelter before starting college. Now a student in Zoology at WSU, Amelia hopes to further her education and pursue becoming a veterinarian. During school, Amelia has stayed busy by volunteering at the Whitman County Humane Society and being an active member of the Raptor Club, the Pre-Veterinary Club, and the Association for Women in STEM. However, what really solidified that veterinary medicine was the choice for her was working at Sultan Veterinary Clinic as a veterinary assistant over the summer of 2023. She fell in love with watching surgeries and medical procedures. Her favorite part about being at Alpine Animal Hospital is getting to know each pet and how they are each special in their own way. This allows her to get closer with each patient and further her knowledge about animals, which she will apply in her future career.
