Alissa Tyminski, RVT
Start date: January 2014
What is your background?
I have lived in Cleveland all my life and probably will stay here until I am old and grey. I attended Ohio University and graduated in 2004 with an English Degree and years later went to Stautzenberger and graduated in 2011. My most recent job was working at Great Lakes Veterinary Specialists as an Emergency Veterinary Technician.
Do you have any pets currently?
I have 3 dogs; Duchovny, a 10 year old Chocolate Lab named after David Duchovny (she’s a girl!), Rowdy, a 7 year old Lab mix, and Ewok, a 3 year old Chow mix.
What is your favorite pet-related memory?
My favorite pet related memory would be when my neighbor's puppies escaped from the backyard and I had half a dozen puppies running and jumping all over me. It may have been one of the greatest days of my life!
What’s your favorite thing about Embrace?
My favorite thing about Embrace is that the employees are not just a number; the company cares about you and realizes you have a life outside of work. I also love that you can bring your pets to work. It makes the work day so much more fun.
What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time, my husband and I are big beer connoisseurs and we like to try new craft beers and attend craft beer shows. Pretty sure I have tried every pumpkin beer out there.
What is your favorite quote?
“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference” -Robert Frost
