    DVM
    With over 30 years of experience in compassionate care for the creatures in our lives who we call a part of our family, Dr. K is an integral part of the fabric of the Mad River Valley and the families that reside here. In addition, those who call this special place a “home away from home” also utilize her services since her down to earth approach of both caring and educating is a unique blend that benefits both the animal and the owner.

    Welcome Waggin'
    I'm a ball of energy most of the time... but I can often be found curled up like a cat sleeping while other canines and felines visit my human.

    Julie is attempting to see how much veterinary assisting she can get away with while simultaneously raising three children, a husband and 2 rescue newfs; a newf and a semi-newf in the Richmond, VT area.  She has degrees from Middlebury College (BA), and Northern Arizona University (MA) and the Animal Behavior College.  She has been moving salamanders to safety along the dirt roads of New England since she was knee high to a grasshopper, advocating for animals since the beginning. She has worked for the Vermont Amphibian and Reptile Atlas Project, the Navajo Nation Environmental Consulting Project, and the Utah State Anthropologist. Currently she has her own in home studio arts business, No Straight Lines, writes and illustrates articles for the Green Mountain Animal Defenders, and walks dogs for the Chittenden County Humane Society. She skiis to live and is happy to have a learning opportunity in the Mad River with Mad River Veterinary Service!


  • Sue Heim
    Kennel Care Provider & Office Care/Clean Team member
    Originally from Maine, Sue is quite the nurturing dog lover. She really enjoys interacting with all canines but is especially fond of shepherds and labs. When Sue isn't caring for our boarding clients she can be found pursuing her passions of sailing, gardening, skiing, and spending time with her grandchildren.

    Assistant Office Manager/Head RVT

    My husband and I moved to Vermont recently after falling in love with the area on vacation. I was born and raised in Ohio, but lived in Indiana for two years prior to relocating to Vermont. I have been a veterinary technician for 5 years in a variety of clinics. I have two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels named Darwin and Winston and a Tuxedo cat named Simon.
