Dr. Heavey joined our team in June of 2018, shortly after graduating from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine. She is focused on nurturing the human-animal bond and finds fostering those connections to be one of the most rewarding parts of her day. Her professional interests include soft tissue surgery, pain management and rehabilitation, and senior pet care. Providing well-rounded patient care is her primary goal.
In her free time, Dr. Heavey enjoys traveling, spending time outdoors, cheering on her favorite Chicago sports teams (Go Bears!), and reading a good book. She has two dogs, a Golden Retriever (Ellie) and a Pitbull mix (Spartacus aka Sparty). Sparty was adopted through our in-house rescue partner, Help Save Pets!
