Alix- Veterinary Technician

Alix has known Dr. Swearingen since she was only 8 years old. Alix began her technician career 4 years ago interning at a vet clinic in Island Lake. She began her first job in Mchenry at an animal clinic that was traditional medicine and also holistic. She then decided to join our team here at Village Vet. The staff members are happy to have her and Alix is thrilled to be a part of our team. Alix was just recently married to her long-term high school sweetheart. She loves all animals, and she is a horse girl. She does a sport called “Eventing” with an Irish Thoroughbred Mare named Kiwi. They have 2 fur babies. The first is Alli their 5 ½ year old they rescued from Gary Indiana. She is French Bulldog Jack Russell mix. She loves to play fetch but she could also sleep all day. Their second fur baby is Sierra a 3 ½ year old Black lab they rescued from Janesville Wisconsin. Sierra is full of energy, she loves anything outdoors. Swimming is her favorite activity to do, if she could live in the water she would. Alix and her husband are expecting their first child on July 4th, 2015!
