Customer Service Coordinator
Maria was born and brought up in Scotland and has lived in the US since 1991. She attended the University of Glasgow and graduated with a Bachelor of Science majoring in Botany. Her past careers have included retail management in San Diego, CA where she lived for 10 years. Moving east to Bloomington, Indiana in 2000 saw a career change to banking and latterly administrative support in The School of Public Health at Indiana University, where she also managed a youth swim team. Maria and her husband Scott moved to North Carolina in July 2014 and are very happy to be here. They cannot move any further east or they will be back in Scotland!
She shares her home with two rescued pups. Her other baby is her 21 year old son Ewan who is a senior at Indiana University. In her spare time Maria enjoys going to the theater and attending local arts and craft fairs. She also likes to explore the local restaurant scene, and of course walking the dogs.
Her fur babies are a timid little black lab mix who was a shelter rescue in Bloomington Indiana and a gentle sweet young Collie from the Collie rescue of the Carolinas.
Allison grew up in New England but is happy to be living in the Triangle where she has deep family roots and fond memories of visiting as a child. After obtaining a degree in the liberal arts, she enjoyed a short career working with adults with mental illness, and then eventually got around to pursuing her lifelong interest in working with animals. She has enjoyed varied experiences in the veterinary field which have included working in community medicine, working with horses, small animal emergency medicine and small animal general practice. She is excited about working in a hospital that promotes high-quality preventive care and enjoys building relationships as she gets to know individual patients.
Allison shares her life with her husband, cat, and dog. Outside of work she mostly enjoys relaxing pursuits that involve quiet time such as reading and being outdoors, especially if she can combine both when NC weather allows!
