Owner

Dr. Theresa Heibel, DVM, has worked at Memorial Animal Hospital since 1998, and has been the owner since 2002.  Originally from outside Kansas City, she graduated from Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1995.  After graduation she went to work for an all dairy/equine practice in upstate New York.  There she enjoyed the animals but soon moved on to a small animal practice in southern Ohio.  It was in Ohio where she began her love of small animal surgery.  After two years, she met Dr. Charles Beutel, and began to practice at what is now Memorial Animal Hospital.

Theresa and her husband, Scott have two children, Jesse and Riley.  They feel lucky to own a small farm that allows them to have more pets than most.  They currently have two dogs, four cats, two horses, and seven cows.  All of the cats and one dog are rescue animals.  As a veterinarian, Theresa has a strong interest in surgery, dermatology, and behavioral issues.  Everyday she gets to do something different. “I still see things I’ve never seen and continue to learn.” Prior to obtaining her degree she worked as a kennel assistant/ bather and also for United Van Lines packing houses.   She spends the majority of her free time with her children, enjoying horseback riding, gardening, sports, and just generally being outside.
