Alissa Madden (Veterinary Tech/Assistant)

Alissa joined the Monon Animal Hospital team in 2010. She attended Purdue University where she earned a degree in Wildlife Science.  Having grown up in Indianapolis with lots of pets including everything from iguanas to rabbits and horses, she always knew she wanted a career involving animals.  Over the years Alissa has worked at animal shelters and several veterinary clinics, including a couple of specialty centers.  Alissa enjoys working with people who care about their animals and never minds taking that extra call or answering a question if it will help ease the minds of our clients.  When she isn’t working, Alissa enjoys spending time with her husband Jim, their dog Winston, cat BifCat, and any number of rescued foster dogs who may be staying with them temporarily.
