Alyssa Podaras, Client Service Specialist
Alyssa has always had a passion for animals ever since she was a child. She spent several years of her childhood growing up on a wolf reservation where she was able to listen to them howl every day. Alyssa moved to Charlotte a few years ago when she started attending college at UNCC. She first started working with animals in 2016 beginning at a doggy daycare and boarding facility. While working there, she adopted her first ever puppy, Azula, who became her whole world. Alyssa graduated from UNCC in May of 2018 with a bachelors degree in Japanese Studies. After graduating, she wanted to further herself by establishing a career instead of just working a job. Beginning in August of 2018, she made the switch to working in the veterinary field and has never looked back. When not working, she loves spending time with Azula and her two snakes. She likes working out and taking dance classes which she one day hopes to compete for! She also considers herself to be a bit of a nerd. She enjoys cosplaying, traveling to anime conventions, and playing video games when she's at home.
