Our Careteam

Alicia Godwin
Customer Service
Alicia 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, and in her free time she likes to garden, spend time with friends and family, and create art.
Karen Gelling
Financial Manager
Karen has a background in management and budget control. She worked as the site coordinator at the KC branch of the IRS for 32 years. After retiring, Karen was looking for something to help keep her occupied and her skill set fit our needs perfectly! You’ll find Karen greeting you when you visit and fielding your phone calls, but she’ll also be doing tons of background work to keep Perimeter Veterinary Center running smoothly.

Karen and her husband, Lou, live in Shawnee with their dog Conner. Conner is a shih tzu with a gentle heart and adorable fluffy face. Karen and Lou enjoy evening walks and gardening in their free time, and Conner loves to help out!
Sebastian
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!
