Allyson is from Fayetteville, NC but was raised in Seattle, WA. She moved back to the Carolinas in 2008 to be closer to her family. Allyson's love and passion for animals is what led her to start her career with Banfield in 2017 as a veterinary assistant. She has a special interest in taking the extra time to build relationships with pets to help ease the anxiety associated with visits. In her spare time, she enjoys working on cars, doing DIY projects and outdoor activities with her 8-year-old son, and visiting her local Starbucks.
