Alex Mays, CVT

Project Director

Alex met with the founder of The Serengeti Foundation back in late 2018. They brainstormed on the most effective ways to tangibly make a difference in underserved communities. By the end of the meeting, the makings of a low cost/by donation mobile spay and neuter clinic were in the works. The Serengeti Foundation provided a blank slated cargo trailer, and Alex got to work designing the mobile surgery unit. Throughout her career as a Veterinary Technician, she has worked primarily in both shelter medicine and high volume spay and neuter. She first was introduced to the director of The Serengeti Foundation while working at The Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Now, you will most likely see her driving the project’s 32ft trailer across The Navajo Nation with her chihuahuas in tow. She has dedicated her entire life to this project, and wants to only see it continue to grow.

Malyn Gilbert, CVT 

Medical Coordinator/Lead Veterinary Technician

Malyn has been a Veterinary Technician for 9 years. In that time, she worked at a variety of clinics that allowed her to gain an impressive amount of diverse skills and knowledge. Between working at a specialty hospital, volunteering with RAVS on the San Carlos Apache Tribe, and working in the clinic at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, she came to The Parker Project with the experience very few have in just under a decade of this work. She was hired as medical coordinator in April of 2022. While she has helped immensely in the continued development of our spay and neuter clinics, her role as medical coordinator is just kicking off. Recently, the Banfield Foundation granted us a fully equipped mobile veterinary clinic. Malyn will now be growing our wellness and vaccination outreach program on top of all of her roles with the spay and neuter clinics. We don’t know what we did to deserve her, but we are thankful every day we have her on our side!

Eva Wilson

Clinic Lead

Eva has been volunteering at our clinics for the last two years. When she wasn’t working as a technician at High Country Humane, she was spending her weekends with us saving lives. After graduating from NAU, she began her work at the shelter. She was the clinic’s “do it all” gal, and there wasn’t anything she wouldn’t handle. Late in 2022, she began working for High Country Humane remotely, allowing more time for outreach work with The Parker Project. Starting in January 2023, she began working with us at clinics full time. As clinic lead, she manages the flow of patients through our clinic, is the point person for volunteers, and handles just about anything one might need throughout the clinic weekend. The addition of Eva has allowed Alex and Malyn to focus on their medical and surgical teams while knowing that the clinic itself is running smoothly. This natural ray of sunshine has been the perfect for our project, and we couldn’t be happier to have her with us.
