Caylen Alexander, our dedicated Associate Veterinarian, has been making a difference in the world of veterinary medicine for the past 3 years. Her journey into this field began in 2013 when she worked as a veterinary assistant in Landrum, SC while pursuing her undergraduate degree. She grew up riding horses and initially dreamed of opening her own barn, but it was a fateful shadowing experience in a veterinary clinic that truly captured her heart, steering her towards a career focused on caring for both patients and clients.
As an Associate Veterinarian, Caylen plays a vital role in our clinic, providing exceptional care to our four-legged companions. Her daily responsibilities include conducting comprehensive exams, diagnosing and treating a variety of conditions, and performing surgeries to ensure the well-being of our beloved patients.
Her most cherished achievements revolve around personal growth and a commitment to becoming a better veterinarian each day. At the heart of her world are her beloved pets: Lettie, a sweet and goofy 7-year-old Catahoula, Lucy, a feisty 10-year-old Heeler mix, and Oakley, her 6-year-old Quarter Horse with the BIGGEST personality!
When she’s not helping pets and their parents at Riverside Vet, Dr. Alexander enjoys riding horses, playing guitar, singing, and crafting. She’s a loving mother to her son and daughter and enjoys spending quality time with her family. And while she’s not a fan of Mexican food, she was once part of an acoustic band. Caylen’s passion for veterinary care and her rich, diverse interests make her an invaluable member of our team.
