Sydni grew up wanting to be a veterinarian, and discovered quickly after she began working in the field, she much preferred to be the one being told what to do, rather than the one making decisions. She now enjoys working with our team members, and watching them turn their passion for veterinary medicine into a fulfilling and rewarding career.

Sydni’s dog, Bunsen, is a Bernese Mountain Dog, who is the goofiest dog she’s ever loved. He doesn’t understand the fundamentals of fetch, but is utterly obsessed with any kind of water. He desperately wants every cat that’s ever existed to be his best friend, and has never met a stranger he didn’t immediately love. The UPS driver is his favorite person in the world.

When she’s not at work, Sydni loves to bake, especially complicated, difficult recipes that put her skills to the test. One day she’s going to figure out how to fake UK citizenship so she can be a contestant on the Great British Bakeoff. Until then, she’ll settle for sharing her bakes with her team at Alpine. If she’s not in the kitchen, she enjoys trail riding on a good mountain horse, watching Lord of the Rings over and over again, and playing video games. She’s also a massive baseball fanatic, and though she is a San Francisco Giants fan, she just loves the game, and will watch any team play.
