Dr. Heidi Lewis
Dr. Heidi's love for animals and the science of caring for them was homespun in rural Belmont, Wisconsin. Surrounded by a menagerie on the hobby farm of her youth, she and her family raised and trained Collies. Her childhood and family life inspired a natural interest in companion animal medicine with a particular focus on birds and other exotic creatures, and advanced reproductive medicine. A practitioner with uncommon ease and ability in the medical and surgical aspects of treating cats and dogs, Dr. Heidi brings to The Animal House a deepened expertise in avian and exotic medicine, advanced breeding techniques, and ultrasound imaging. Living with two cats, Apollo and Selena, and Titan, a standard poodle, Dr. Heidi is on her way to creating a menagerie of her own for her children and husband Jim, at her home in Suamico.
Dr. Kelly Falck
Born and raised in rural East De Pere, Dr. Kelly is one of those rare and lucky persons who grew up always knowing what she would do as her life's work. True to herself, in second grade she wrote a contract, "I Promise I Will Become a Veterinarian". After gaining her DVM with honors and distinction she made her home in Colorado. During those 12 years, Dr. Kelly found she missed the comfort of family and friends and Green Bay's easy lifestyle. Now at The Animal House, she is enjoying the community she knew as a youth and is very enthused to be a part of the veterinary team. Always actively giving, Dr. Kelly also volunteers her time with Cats Anonymous and teaches biology and chemistry at Providence Academy. She dreams one day of owning a hobby farm and is an active member of B.O.W. at UW-Stevens Point where she is learning all about ice fishing, dog sledding and archery. Dr. Kelly, her five boys, and her mixed breed collie Abby, happily reside on Green Bay's East Side.

Although she has taken breaks for her studies, she has never left us for very long. Dr. Theresa finished her undergraduate coursework at UW-Milwaukee and completed her veterinary studies at St. Matthew's University and the University of Minnesota. With a special interest in physical therapy, she brings a fresh perspective, along with her energy and enthusiasm. Dr. Theresa, and her family, love spending time with one another along with "Silas", German Shepard and "Charlie Girl", Llasa Apso .
Dr. Jessica Joniaux
Born and raised in Casco, Dr. Jessica's childhood was filled with dreams of becoming a zoo keeper. Her love for animals led to volunteer positions at the NEW Zoo and the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary which blossomed into a passion for the veterinary field, and a degree from UW-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine. Her interests lie in primary care, internal medicine and urgent care. Ever the outdoor enthusiast, Dr. Jessica learned to shoot trap at age 12, and continues league competition.
