Heidi joined us in 2015 as a kennel attendant but has become one of our best technical assistants. Heidi provides the best nursing care to our hospitalized patients and also makes sure all of her clients are just as well taken care of. Her background with animals includes shelter medicine and exotics including Tigers, Rhinos, and Bongos, but she has become an asset to our small animal care team. When Heidi is not at the clinic she enjoys spending time with her family, baking, and taking her dog, Jake, on hikes through the Blue Ridge. We are so happy to have Heidi on our team!
