Dr. Alicia Finger DVM
Dr. Alicia is originally from the suburbs of Syracuse NY, and
grew up riding horses and volunteering at the local shelter which is how she
became interested in veterinary medicine.
Dr. Alicia received a BA in Biological Sciences and a Minor
in Environmental Resource Management from Binghamton University while on an
athletic scholarship in Track and Cross Country. After
graduation, she moved to Northern New York and worked as an assistant herdsman
on a large dairy farm for almost a year until deciding to go back to veterinary
school with interests in mixed animal medicine.
During her rigorous studies at the University of Missouri,
she was employed by the Emergency and Critical Care team as an assistant on
nights and weekends to gain more experience.
After graduating with her DVM, Dr. Alicia’s interests changed from mixed
to small animal medicine as she became more compassionate for the human animal
bond that small animal medicine is centered around.
She recently moved to the west coast as a longtime dream of
hers has been to get “out west.” Dr.
Alicia has three pets and an amazing human companion, named Ryan. Together they
share two dogs, German Shepard Huxley and Lab mix Byron, and a kitty named
Arthur. In her spare time she is out
hiking the beautiful surrounding trails, biking, camping or running. She also loves to travel and meet new
