Dr. Alyssa Nelson grew up in northwestern Pennsylvania, where she also completed her undergraduate studies. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology at Allegheny College in 2017. She then went on to graduate with her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine.
She learned at a young age the role that pets play in humans’ lives – they’re part of the family! – and so knew early on her passion for companion animal veterinary medicine. She loves that she can explore many aspects of small animal veterinary medicine as a general practitioner, but also has special interests in behavior and nutrition and wildlife rehabilitation.
During her free time, Dr. Nelson enjoys weightlifting, completing puzzles of all kinds, and spending time in nature. She resides in East York with her pictured fur baby Cashmere.
