VCA Ocean View Animal Hospital Staff Profiles
Alyson Singer, RVT, TechnicianWhile earning her B. S. degree in Biology at Colorado State University, Alyson spent much of her free time exploring the Rocky mountains and southwestern states. Her love of travel, camping and adventure led her to some of the most beautiful landscapes in the U.S. After finally settling down on the central coast, she joined the Ocean View team in 2000.
After realizing she loved veterinary medicine and working with animals everyday, she pursued her A. S. degree in Animal Health Technology (at Hartnell College) and became a Registered Veterinary Technician in 2004.
In addition to volunteering at several wildlife rehabilitation facilities and animal rescue organizations, in 2005, Alyson fulfilled her childhood dream of traveling to Africa. While spending three months there, she volunteered at C.A.R.E. (www.primatecare.org.za), and had the rare opportunity to help injured native wildlife and play with orphaned baboons!
More recently, Alyson has gained experience working as a wildlife research assistant conducting fieldwork in the Coconino National Forest, AZ and as a clinical research assistant at a medical teaching hospital in Philadelphia, PA.
She spends most of her free time enjoying nature and the outdoors; so when she’s not working hard, you’d be sure to find her exploring the Big Sur coast, hiking Sobranes Canyon or cycling around town.
She loves her own babies and shares her home with her “children”, Harley and Louie, adopted “daughter” Smiglet and foundling parakeet, Birdie (and his girlfriend!).
Greta Stearman, Supervising TechnicianGretaGreta is from upstate New York. She graduated with a BA from college of Saint Rose, Albany, NY in biology 1994 . She interned in Florida at the Theater of the Sea in 1993, where she worked with captive marine animals including dolphins, sea lions, lemon sharks, three species of sea turtles, bat rays, and other vertebrates and invertebrates. Her second internship took her to Maui in 1995 with the Pacific Whale Foundation. There she assisted researchers in data collection of the humpback whale. Then in 1996, she drove from New York to California with her large shepherd husky mix, Max, to demand that the Monterey Bay Aquarium hire her. There she worked in the sea otter research and conservation program for a total of eight years. "Absolutely, some of the most rewarding work I've ever done. I cared for intensively, sea otters of all ages and ailments. Very cool stuff." In 2004, Greta joined the great crew at Ocean View for more animal experiences in the terrestrial sense. She spends most of her time off hanging out with the coolest dog ever, Clyde, a cheetah/antelope mix and her partner in crime, Miles. Show More

Holly’s interests include hiking, biking, and exploring the beautiful Monterey Peninsula and beyond! She and her husband, David, share their home in Pacific Grove with their cat “Penny”.
