Dr. Alida Baroco's love of animals began at an early age. At age seven, she learned to ride and maintain horses at a local barn in the Atlanta suburbs. Her childhood love of animals led her to Berry College where she obtained a Bachelor's degree in Animal Science. While in college, she adopted her first rescue dog "Lucy," who was full of love and companionship, and confirmed she was on the right path to pursue her passion in a career working with animals. After college and before attending vet school, Dr. Baroco enjoyed working for small animal veterinarians and was a biological research field technician for the National Park Service. In 2005, she graduated from the University of Georgia's College of Veterinary Medicine and has practiced in this area ever since. She resides in Buford with her husband, Dallas, their son and daughter, and two rescue dogs, Mackey, and Nico. Dr. Baroco is a current member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Georgia Veterinary Medical Association, and the Gwinnett County Veterinary Medical Association.

Courtney graduated from Georgia Gwinnett College in December 2020 with her Bachelor’s degree in Biology with a concentration in Biochemistry. She plans on continuing her education at veterinary school where she can achieve her lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian.
