Hi! My name is Carma, and I’ve worked with Dr. Ali since 2004. I started working in the kennel at Alma Animal Hospital just a few months after it opened, and gradually started learning more of the technician side. I currently work mostly at our new 121 location, but I still enjoy going back to my old “stomping grounds” when I can. I really enjoy working closely with our patients, as well as getting to know their stories and meeting their families. I’ve always had a soft spot for animals, which is why when we were younger, my sister and I would bring home any type of creature we thought was in need of assistance. I believe that pets have the ability to bring love into anyone’s heart, and it is up to us to ensure their well-being, just as they do for us. I understand that each one brought into the clinic is playing a very important role in someone’s life. My future goal is to bring my hands on experience to school, and continue my veterinary technology education. But in between working and learning, I like to read all kinds of books, play Tetris, go to concerts and movies, drink smoothies, or just enjoy the company of my 4 legged companions.

We had everything from dogs, birds to even a goat. As an adult I continue to surround myself with animals. We currently have a Pit bull named Veda Bear, a mixed breed named Dirk Sandwich and a Yorkie mix named Tater Tot.
