Alycia was born in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia and lived in Truro while completing her diploma in veterinary technology. She currently lives in Dartmouth with her spouse Tyler, their two dogs Nala and Baby and their two cats Lily and Ash. She dreams to add a Golden Retriever to the mix in the near future.

Alycia joined the veterinary career because she loves puppies and kittens, but she also loves nursing sick pets back to health. She is specifically interested in anesthesia, surgery, nursing, critical care and weight loss in pets.

When Alycia is not working, she enjoys soccer, baseball, hiking, swimming, camping and going to the beach.
