While you may have heard of crazy cat ladies, D.J. can accurately be described as a crazy monitor lizard guy. D.J. is an Idaho native who developed a love of animals at a young age living on a ranch. As long as he can remember he has tried to catch and keep everything that creeps or crawls, and now has a sizable reptile collection in addition to his three dogs. About half of his many pets are rescues, and he is passionate about ensuring every critter under his roof is properly cared for and loved. In addition to reptile husbandry, D.J.'s hobbies include camping, 3D modeling and animation, martial arts and cooking for his fiancé.

Regina joined the Alpine team in the spring of 2019. Originally from Southern California, Regina moved to Pullman to attend WSU in 2015. She became interested in veterinary medicine in high school after helping care for some of the sick residents at her local animal shelter. She became more intrigued on how she could aid in treating animals to prolong the human-animal bond. Regina currently owns two cats named “Pearl” and “Lilac”. One of her favorite things about working in veterinary medicine is educating clients on topics that she is familiar with in veterinary medicine and changing the way they view their pet's health.

Her future goals include attending veterinary school and specializing in animal behavior.
