After obtaining her Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree at UW Madison, she was commissioned as a Captain in the US Army, June 2005. She and her husband, Collin Vanden Heuvel, were stationed in California where she served 3 ? years at the Naval Air Station, Lemoore as the Office In Charge of the Veterinary Hospital on base. While leading and training a troop of soldiers, her main focus was to ensure the health and deployability of Military Working Dogs to Iraq and Afghanistan during war. Having 2 children while serving in the US Army, she elected to be honorably discharged and joined the small animal practice team at Care Veterinary Clinic in CA. Dr. V specialized in soft tissue surgery, dental care, ultrasound, and preventative medicine for 7 ? years. During their 11 years in CA, they were able to explore the west coast and add 2 more children to the bunch. Realizing the importance of family and having the desire to move back home, they made the decision and seemingly impossible journey cross country to Wisconsin. Silver Spring Animal Wellness Center welcomed her. It is the perfect new chapter in her career as she had been looking for an outlet to learn and practice Integrative Medicine. Dr. V is thrilled to be part of this amazing staff and community in Glendale.
