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 wife.

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. In addition to having an interest in veterinary medicine, Regina is a volunteer puppy raiser for Guide Dogs for the Blind, plays volleyball, and has been studying Mandarin, culminating in earning a minor in Chinese Language along with her Bachelor of Science. Her future goals include attending veterinary school and specializing in animal behavior.

Martin grew up in the Renton-Maple Valley area but moved to Pullman in the summer of 2019 to pursue a veterinary education. He joined the Alpine team in February 2020. Martin started his veterinary education at Renton Technical College's Veterinary Assisting program in 2019 and worked at a veterinary clinic in Western Washington prior to starting at Alpine. He was drawn to veterinary medicine to help those who cannot ask for help, and to be there for them. Martin lives in a zoo of various reptiles, fish, mammals, and rodents, including ferrets and an Axolotl. The only one that he can claim as his own is a ten-year-old Ragdoll cat named "Opal". Martin, in his free time, loves exploring the Palouse going hiking, kayaking, and recently fishing! You might see Martin in downtown Pullman sipping on his favorite white coffee at Pups and Cups.

Sierra is from Grand Junction, CO and recently moved to Pullman with her significant other while he attends law school. She has been working in the veterinary field for the last five years, has a strong passion for the profession, and is pursuing admission into the veterinary college at WSU. Sierra loves working with animals and hopes to one day work with exotics. She also loves being in nature and hiking. Although she does not currently have any pets due to previous housing not allowing for it, she hopes to have some in the near future! Her love for animals has been a part of her life since a very young child, and she is incredibly happy to be continuing her work with them at Alpine Animal Hospital.

Reh was raised in Western Washington as an only child with no pets. That did not stop her from volunteering after school at the local animal humane society, however. After many years of persuading she finally got her first companion, a Shih Tzu/Yorkie “Hosier”. Reh later moved to the Palouse to continue her Bachelor of Science at Washington State University. Upon graduation she will move on to veterinary school, hopeful for admission to the veterinary college at WSU. Reh sees the world as a map to be explored and loves camping or hiking to connect with nature. She one day hopes the adventure will lead to volunteer work in Asia at Elephant Conservations to achieve her long-term goal of meeting and eventually working with her favorite species, elephants, along with many other exotic creatures. Reh is excited to join the Alpine team and looks forward to gaining useful skills that she will utilize throughout her entire career, wherever the adventure may take her.

Originally from Pasco, WA, Arielle moved to Pullman to continue her academic career and received a Bachelor’s of Science in Animal Science degree in May of 2020.

Arielle’s passion for animals and veterinary medicine began early in life as she was raised around animals and gained experience caring for both companion and agricultural animals. Her experiences volunteering in animal shelters, veterinary hospitals, and in the agricultural field are what solidified her decision of going into veterinary medicine and pursuing a career as a veterinarian. Arielle’s future career goals include becoming a small animal veterinarian and eventually opening her own clinic that provides affordable care to low income members of the community. Her favorite thing about veterinary medicine is that it allows her to play an active role in her community through providing care to animals and improving animal health. Some of Arielle’s hobbies include traveling and exploring around the Pacific Northwest, and game nights with friends & family. She is a huge fan of true crime, and really enjoys at-home movie nights with her husband.

Matt recently moved from his hometown of Springfield, MO to Pullman. He plans on applying to WSU to pursue a bachelor's in Zoology with a minor in Animal Science. From there, his goals include veterinary school and becoming a vet! When Covid shutdowns began, Matt decided he would start looking for a field to build a career in. He applied for a CSR/reception position at a veterinary hospital in Springfield. He then transitioned to being a veterinary technician and that's when he truly found an undiscovered passion for the field. Matt then made it his goal to save up enough to move across the country to pursue this passion, and now he's here! Matt has two pets - a Staffordshire/Border Collie mix named “Honey” and a cat named “Moonshine”. Previous pets include a quaker parrot, a corn snake, a leopard gecko, a bearded dragon, two goldfish, an emperor scorpion, and even a tarantula at one point. An aspect of veterinary medicine that Matt most enjoys is diagnostics - being presented with a problem and working closely with the doctors to come up with a solution. He also thoroughly enjoys meeting and building close relationships with clients and patients, seeing progress, and being there for them. He has an affinity for the scaly and the winged pets and plans on specializing in exotics care in school. In his spare time, Matt can be found hiking around Pullman with “Honey”, adding to his ever-growing vinyl collection, and spending time on his computer. Matt wants clients to know that he will always be there with a smile, a joke, a shoulder, or an ear.
