Born and raised in the small city/town of Bethlehem, PA with four siblings, Alaina spent most of her extra time on the diamond or court. She never had pets growing up but found an immense passion for animals early on in life and now has 2 of her own furry critters – Julius Ceasar and Kookaburra (both cats). Now, she lives on the sweetest place on earth – Hershey, PA – and living the dream!
Dr. Loguidice did her undergraduate work at Saint Joseph’s University as a biology major and was a D1 softball player and the captain of her team. Her veterinary career took off on the beautiful Caribbean island of St Kitts at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. She completed her clinical year at Oregon State University College of Veterinary Medicine. This family-oriented Pennsylvanian loves to balance her life by hanging out with family and close friends, watching movies, being outdoors (i.e. hiking, biking, water activities), cross fitting, travelling, baking, playing sports, and going on missions trips! Whenever she can, she tries to visit her parents in her hometown to get some amazing home cooked Italians meals. She has strong interests towards nutrition, public health, and cardiology. Her liking towards soft tissue surgery continues to grow.
Dr. Steven Brady
Dr. Brady was raised on a family farm in Idaho with nine siblings and many pets. Living in rural America allowed him to enjoy horseback riding, canoeing, dirt biking, scouting, camping, and bird hunting. Dr. Brady solidified his decision to pursue veterinary medicine while volunteering on a church farm in England. Following undergraduate work in Idaho, he pursued a veterinary career at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine on the beautiful island of St. Kitts with a clinical year at the University of Missouri. He worked in Idaho at a mixed animal practice for 13 years before coming to us in 2018. He enjoys family life with his wife and five children. Recently, he has enjoyed exploring the East coast, and all its rich history and culture, while still maintaining a quieter remote setting that Palmyra has to offer.
Dr. Pamela Datsko
Dr Pamela Datsko grew up in Ebensburg PA and received her DVM degree in 1990 from Michigan State University. “I always knew I was going to be a veterinarian, no matter how hard people told me it was going to be, I was born to do this” is how she describes her calling. For most of her career surgery was what excited her but as she saw how often traditional western medicine lacked answers for her patients, she turned to eastern medicine, specifically acupuncture. She began offering acupuncture in 2016 and has enjoyed seeing so many patients benefit from treatments for things like arthritis, post op pain, aging issues and organ diseases. Dr Datsko is also passionate that the human animal bond be supported in all phases of life and welcomes discussions so that clients feel supported in making decisions that feel right to them. She is currently obsessed with fluid pour painting and lives in Linglestown with her partner Ross where they enjoy relaxing in the backyard, traveling and spending time with family. She has 2 horses, GQ and Maya, and Pip the cat to keep her busy as well. Dr Datsko is excited to meet a whole new group of co workers and clients to continue her passion that is veterinary medicine.
