Our Careteam

Alicia Godwin
Customer Service
Alicia joined us at Perimeter Veterinary Center in February of 2021. She was born in Marion, Ohio. Her family then relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina, where she lived for six years. The family relocated again to McPherson, Kansas, and Alicia has called Kansas home ever since then. She moved from McPherson to Lawrence to attend college at the University of Kansas where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a focus in Textiles, and a Minor in Art History.
Alicia has always had a love for animals, and was nicknamed “Dr. Dolittle” when she was little. After graduating from KU, Alicia decided to pursue her passion for animal welfare and started working at Lawrence Humane Society. She worked at LHS for three and a half years, facilitating adoptions, and later running the Volunteer Program. Alicia then decided she wanted to expand her horizons and gain even more experience working with animals, which is how she found Perimeter Veterinary Center. Alicia loves working in an environment where she can be surrounded by animals every day and where she knows that every single pet that comes through the door is going to receive the specialized care that they deserve.
Alicia currently lives in Lawrence with her fiancé Kevin and their dog Doris, and in her free time she likes to garden, cook, create art, and cuddle with Doris.
Jessica Garrett
Veterinary Technician/Hospital Manager
Jessica joined the Perimeter Veterinary Center team in May of 2017. She has lived all over the country but is originally from the midwest and claims Kansas as home. She received her registered veterinary technician credentials from Brown Mackie in 2014. She loves providing attentive, focused care to all our patients, as well as educating clients and working with them to develop the best wellness and medical care plans for their four-legged family members. Since joining Perimeter, she has also taken on the responsibilities of clinic manager and helps keep us all organized and ready to serve our clients and patients! In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing volleyball, and snuggling with Wilbur, her sweet and goofy Doberman Pinscher.

Taylor Handshy
Veterinary Technician
Taylor joined the PVC family in March of 2022. She has lived in the KC area most of her life. After her undergraduate schooling, she earned her EMT certification and worked in that field for a couple of years. After some time working in the human medical field, she realized she really wanted to work with animals. She began work at Mission Veterinary Emergency and Specialty in Mission, Kansas, and was employed with them for two years. After gaining essential experience in that field, she decided she'd like to use her knowledge and skills in a different type of setting with additional focus on preventative and wellness care. In the general practice setting, she loves developing long term relationships with our patients and clients and taking part in their lifelong care. In her free time, Taylor enjoys crocheting, playing video games with her friends, and spending time with family. Taylor currently lives in Lenexa with her kitties, Toad and Roach.
Jordan Clark
Veterinary Assistant
Jordan joined the Perimeter team in May 2022. She had recently earned an Associate of Arts degree and her certification as a nurse assistant, as well as certification in CPR and first aid by the American Red Cross. Additionally, Jordan is fluent in sign language! After earning her degree and certifications, she initially worked in home heath care. However, having always loved animals, she realized she wanted more from her job. She went looking for something that combined her knowledge and skill set with her passion for animal care. Thankfully, she found us! She loves assisting with patient care and providing pets with plenty of TLC along with their other treatments. In her free time, Jordan enjoys kayaking, drawing, playing Guitar Hero with friends, and spending time with her sweet one-eyed Great Pyrenees mix, Jo.
Night Watchman
Sebastian joined the Perimeter Veterinary Center team in June 2017. In his free time (and frequently during working hours) he enjoys naps, belly rubs, making biscuits, and eating. Although he happily volunteered to watch over the clinic at night, we suspect he does more sleeping than guarding. Despite his shortcomings as an employee, he has snuggled his way into all of our hearts and will remain in his current position for life!
