Chief Operations Officer
Joe Hrabak has spent almost 30 years of his life in Veterinary Medicine. He started a LONG time ago as a kennel technician, quickly working his way through the ranks in the hospital from assistant to technician until reaching the level of director where he spent the better part of 19 years. Joe has had the profound honor of working with some of the biggest names in Veterinary Medicine throughout his career. Those opportunities have allowed him to learn from some of the best in the industry and allowed him opportunities to work on a huge variety of species of animals. He has worked with large cats, non-human primates, venomous snakes and lizards, raptors to parrots, and of course tens of thousands of dogs and cats. His unique career path has allowed him to see so much of this great nation and North Carolina ranks very high on his list of favorites. He enjoys spending time in “his second home, North Carolina”, but lives in the sunny state of Arizona.Read More
Joe was “that kid” that would see an animal on the side of the road and scream and cry until his parents would pull over so he could see if it was okay. He has always loved helping strengthen the human-animal bond and has committed his entire adult life to this effect. His favorite thing about Veterinary Medicine and working with animals is simply, that animals always show their appreciation for life, he has always enjoyed seeing pets come in very sick, not knowing if they will ever feel better, then the next thing they know they are wagging their tails or pushing their heads against you and they go home. His passion for management and training became very apparent to him early on. He enjoyed teaching and mentoring employees on new skills and techniques that they likely never knew were possible.
He knew this was the right profession for him because there isn’t a day going by where he says “I have to go to work”, rather he says “I have to go do what I love to do.”
Outside of work, he has a beautiful wife and 2 grown gorgeous daughters, 2 perfect grandchildren (1- is a heart warrior). They share their home with Gracie (Cocker mix), Smalls (DSH), and Bandit (Ball Python). He loves cars, baseball, camping, fishing, and all things Disney.
Alycia has recently joined the Creedmoor Road Animal Hospital as the new practice manager. She comes to us from CT where she finished her veterinary technology degree in 2015. She went on to work at one of the largest referral hospitals in CT. By the end of her five-year stay at the referral hospital, Alycia became the supervising technician for the specialty surgical department. She loved her job but left it to follow her family down to NC. Once down south, Alycia took an ICU nursing position at NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine.
Once again, she found herself loving her job however, she felt it was time she needed to step up and make a difference in veterinary medicine. That is when she made her way to Creedmoor!
Alycia has two dogs, Martin and Finnigan, who are the center of her universe. You can often find them at a dog park, hiking, or swimming in a lake somewhere. Things Alycia likes to do, that regrettably, she can’t include her dogs in, are kayaking, golfing, line dancing, and karaoke!
Ally attended the University of North Carolina Wilmington and graduated in 2018 with a marketing degree. She has always had a passion for marketing and absolutely loves connecting with the community and people. She was originally born and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina and has always felt that NC is home!
Her love for animals began with her very first pet, Millie. Millie was their household Beagle mix and Ally developed a strong bond with her that lead her to feel an intense passion for ALL animals. Throughout the years, she has spent a good chunk of time volunteering for animal rescue organizations and shelters and she feels it was an honor to be in a position where she could continue to pursue her passion for animals, professionally.Read More
She knew she was in the right profession when she could use her skills to help advocate for the proper care and treatment of animals. Ally feels honored to promote CRAH because of their great team and the high-quality service they provide.
Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her seven-year-old Yellow Lab, Mabel. They enjoy traveling and taking leisurely walks throughout the neighborhood and along trails. Mabel has been her fur baby since she was only a few weeks old and Ally is grateful every single day to have her in her life. She also enjoys gardening, running, reading, and spending time with her parents and younger sister!
Megan joined our team in March of 2021. Not new to the veterinary field, Megan started her career right out of high school in 2011. She has always had an immense passion for animals and has known that she wanted to work with them since she was young. She is experienced in a wide range of areas including small animals, exotics, and has even worked in an emergency setting. She has since left the ER clinic that she loved to join us and focus on her career and expanding her abilities further. She enjoys all aspects of her job as a Veterinary Technician, but her favorite is client education. She’s glad to sit down with you and answer any questions you have about what preventative care options work best and why you should spay or neuter your pets.
Megan is originally from Greenville but moved to Raleigh in early 2021. She’s very rarely away from her dog, an adorable Aussie mix named Turner who is also our daycare monitor. Megan also claims her girlfriend’s dog as her own, a Shih Tzu mix named Loki. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her girlfriend, Ashley, and their two furbabies, playing video games, and exploring new vegetarian restaurants around Raleigh.
