Who we are and how we got here
After almost a decade of practice, Dr. Nicole Sheehan found herself disappointed with her veterinary career. She worked in one hospital that had great mentoring and pay but terrible culture, then practice with above-average culture but terrible pay and efficiency. In 2013, she set up her own hospital focused on good culture for all and an open mind for all medical strategies that would help her patients. By 2020, she and her business partner, Carrie Uehlein, had a team of 6 vets and 25 veterinary professionals, all feel like they love their career. Although most of them had not been trained in holistic or alternative medicine, they all embrace it after experiencing the benefits for themselves.
This way of practicing also brought in clients from all over, many driving an hour or more for both good results and a good experience. Many of the clients are even coming from out of state saying they just like coming to the vet. After having the reputation grow, Dr. Nicole started to have veterinarians and veterinarian professionals in other cities say they would love to come work together but live too far away from the main hospital. This gave Nicole an idea to start more veterinary hospitals in other cities, where other amazing professionals can again love their careers and see the benefits of holistic and integrative medicine.
Because she spends time with her family at the Carolina beaches, she started the second practice in Wilmington, North Carolina in the heart of the city. In 2021, she expects to have new practices in other parts of North Carolina and beyond.
