Dr Alice Groner, veterinarian at Woodland Animal Hospital in Jefferson City Missouri

Dr. Alice Groner:

I grew up in Jefferson City and had every intention of leaving small town life once I left for college.  I earned my BA from the University of Notre Dame in 1987. From there I moved to Chicago, IL and worked in finance and investments for several years.  It was at this time I realized that there was no position on the corporate ladder that I wanted more than pursuing a career combining my love of animals and life long interest in medicine.  After graduating from the University of Missouri School of Veterinary Medicine I worked in Springfield, Illinois as a General Practitioner by day and an Emergency Clinician at night.  The hours were grueling but the experience I gained translated into the skill set necessary to open Woodland Animal Hospital in Jefferson City in 1998.

Coming back to my home town was actually an easy decision.  I feel fortunate that I can raise a family, be a business owner, and practice veterinary medicine in this great community.  Many of my clients have watched my daughter grow, and I have watched their puppies and kittens mature into senior pets.  The rewards of knowing my clients, their families, and their pets are immeasurable.

He believes strongly in giving a positive experience to every pet that comes into the hospital.
