Ali was born and raised in Naperville, IL and always envisioned working with animals. In 2013, she transferred from the University of Illinois to Colorado State University and graduated in 2016 with a B.S. degree in equine sciences and a minor in business administration. Ali has been working for Banfield since 2017 and now gets to work with animals every day. In her free time, she spends as much time in the mountains as possible hiking, biking, running, (and more!) with her husky, Koda (@Thefluffiestpupper on instagram).
