Heather wanted to be a vet since she was a little girl. She had her first pet at 10 years old, and loved grooming her and pretending she was a show dog. After a high school opportunity to shadow a Veterinarian for a year at Cross Keys Animal Clinic, Heather began her career in pet care. She worked at the veterinarian office for over two years as a receptionist and vet tech. Heather graduated from Mizzou with a degree in animal science.  A move back to St. Louis, brought Heather to Kennelwood Pet Resorts and we’re thrilled to have her as part of our management team. “My favorite part about my job is the dogs- they make the day enjoyable.” Heather has three Chihuahuas, Titan, Apollo, and Leo. “My mom always tells me that I need to live on a huge piece of land, so that I can have all the pets I want to rescue.”
