Heather’s first experiences in veterinary medicine occurred when she was employed as a veterinary assistant for a small animal practice in 1994. She later attended a veterinary technology program in Tomball, Texas. Heather was then employed by a very large veterinary referral hospital where she worked in the diagnostic imaging department for the next 10 years. Her job description included performing multiple radiographic procedures as well as assisting with ultrasound procedures, nuclear medicine studies and special procedures such as myelography. During this time, Heather received two degrees in human medicine, the first in radiologic technology followed by a degree in diagnostic medical sonography where she focused on abdominal sonography and pathology. During this education process, she worked consecutive rotations through multiple Houston area hospitals for 4 years, while continuing her employment in veterinary medicine during nights and weekends. Upon receiving her RDMS (Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer), Heather returned full time to veterinary medicine where her job duties were expanded to include assisting in the ultrasound training of multiple veterinary radiology interns and residents. In 2007, she decided to use her knowledge and experience to pursue her own mobile veterinary ultrasound business.
In addition to running a successful mobile ultrasound service, Heather is a wife and mother to one son and four dogs, and is a foster mom for Short Mugs Rescue Squad. She is a current member of the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography as well as the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography.
