Meet Our Staff

Practice Manager

Kelly Alvarez, CVT

Hi! I'm Kelly and I am happy to be a part of the Mt. Nittany Team! I am originally from Lycoming County, PA but have lived in Gainesville, Florida (where I received my degree in Veterinary Technology) and most recently in Lancaster, PA where I was a technician and manager at a large multi-doctor day practice. I love helping the staff reach their personal and career goals as well as being hands on with the clients and patients. I am excited for our next chapter here at Mt. Nittany and can't wait to build long lasting relationships with our clients and patients! When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my husband, three children and our dog, Molly.
