Dr. Kylie Hericks


Dr. Hericks was born and raised in Virginia. In college her love for animals big and small only grew, leading her to pursue veterinary medicine.  She graduated from Virginia Tech in 2018 with a degree in Animal and Poultry Sciences and did a short stint as a research assistant while waiting to get into vet school. She adopted her best friend, Kodak, from a shelter and they have been inseparable since. In 2023 she graduated from Virginia-Mayland College of Veterinary Medicine. 

She immediately moved down to NC to be with her partner and start her career as a small animal vet. Her passions at the clinic include soft tissue surgery and geriatric care. 

Dr. Hericks is currently hunting for her forever home in the triad with her partner and Kodak. Outside of work she enjoys crafting and gardening. She stays active by practicing the martial art, Aikido, where she holds the rank of 3rd kyu. She also spends her time encouraging her partner to pursue his love for flying any chance she gets. 

Dr. Belinda Morton


Dr. Belinda Morton, is a 2023 graduate from the inaugural class of The University of Arizona College of Veterinary Medicine. She went to undergrad at Arizona State University, then spent nearly 6 years as a veterinary assistant and supervisor at a small animal veterinary hospital in Arizona where she developed a passion for medicine and being part of a pet’s healthcare team.

She was inspired to become a veterinarian by her dog, Coree (RIP 2022), after helping diagnose her gastrointestinal diseases and developing a treatment plan which gave her three extra happy years than she was prognosed.

As a veterinarian, she strives to partner with her clients by providing comprehensive veterinary care, having as stress-free a visit as possible, and providing knowledge and resources. When not in the hospital, she enjoys walking, hiking, running, weightlifting, trying plant-based foods, and spending time with her partner, their rescued pets (dogs and cats).
