Dr. Nicole M. Headlee, DVM
Owner, Lead Veterinarian
Dr. Nicole M. Headlee received her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Auburn University (War Eagle!) in 2015 and her Bachelor's of Science in Biology (with minors in Animal Science and Military Science) from Western Kentucky University in 2011. Prior to completing her degrees, she served over six years in the United States Army, including a deployment to Iraq.
Upon graduation from Auburn, Dr. Headlee practiced in a well-respected hospital in Houston for almost two years. She and her husband, Brian Peterson, wanted to be closer to their family, so they headed to Ohio in 2016. They share their home with their energetic and sweet Labradors, Lemon, Gemma, and Moose, as well as five awesome cats (Marc Andre Fleury, Kekhula, Moses, Petal, and Butters). They have also started raising chickens and love the fresh eggs they get daily!
Dr. Headlee's areas of professional interest include surgery, dermatology, internal medicine, exotic pets, cardiology, feline medicine, and hospice care. For fun, she enjoys music (singing, playing the piano and clarinet), hiking, kayaking, weight lifting, reading, and watching Pittsburgh sports.
