About HSVP

Transparency, Education and Interaction

In the last decade, I feel the general public has started to lose trust in the health professions, including veterinarians. Bad experiences, combined with corporate motives have damaged the doctor/patient relationship. At High Street Vet, we seek to earn back this trust through transparency, communication and integrity. We will treat your pet like we would our own. You can trust us.

She spent the next five years learning the ropes of clinical medicine and surgery as an associate at Academy Animal Hospital in Jacksonville, NC. It was there she learned to appreciate the benefit of a walk-in practice and the importance of accessible veterinary care. She opened High Street Veterinary Practice in March 2018 and lives in Chestertown with her pup Sadie.
