White Oaks West Animal Hospital Alexa Hello, my name is Alexa and I started my journey at White Oaks West in May 2014. I started as a kennel technician but have been promoted and am now a Veterinary Technician. I completed my Bachelor’s degree at the University of Illinois-Springfield in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. Ever since I was a little girl I knew my passion was with animals. My next goal is to go to vet school to become a veterinarian. I have one Chihuahua, named Oliver, and an adopted kitty, named Kit-Kat. I love coming to work and meeting all the furry friends! "
