Dr. Alyssa Smith grew up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania where she spent most of her time enjoying the outdoors with her two sisters and dog, Zurphy. As with most veterinarians, she has wanted to be a vet since childhood. Throughout school she participated in swimming, soccer, and tennis, which she continued in college. She obtained her undergraduate degree from Lebanon Valley College in 2013, and attended Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 2018. During school she both worked for and completed an externship with NLVC. The highlight of her senior year was working within the specialty medicine departments, especially dermatology and oncology. She also enjoys the challenge of internal medicine cases.
Dr. Smith recently relocated to Wisconsin where her husband, Jared, grew up and they live in the town of Erin. Jared works as a mechanical design engineer at Midwest Engineering Systems. They have two adorable Goldendoodles, Theo and Milo, that keep them busy! Outside of working, Dr. Smith enjoys time with her friends and family, hiking, camping, gardening, and spending time in/on the water.
