Heather Hwalek


Heather always knew she wanted to work with animals.  Initially after high school she went to Hallmark Institute of Photography to study animal & wildlife photography.  After spending some time in the field she opted for a change yet still wanted to remain in the animal industry. Heather joined Kennedy Road Veterinary Clinic in March 1995.  Heather has worked in almost every area of the hospital and has served as hospital manager for over 14 years. In July 2011 New England Veterinary Center & Cancer Care opened its doors, moving the general practice from Kennedy Rd Vet and starting the emergency & specialty hospital.  Heather enthusiastically made the transition and continued her role as Hospital Manager. 

 

Over the years Heather has been active in the veterinary field outside of the hospital- she was one of the founding members of the Veterinary Healthcare Team and served as President for 3 years and Treasurer for 3 years. She was also involved in the CT SART (state animal response team). Also active with other organizations- Heather has been treasurer for multiple political campaigns, been an active member of PTO and has sat on the baseball & football boards in her town. 

 

Heather shares her home with her high school sweetheart Ron, their 2 kids- Tristan & Kylie and their 2 Akitas. In her free time Heather can be found cheering on her daughter and her pony Finn at horse shows and her son at Mayhem & high school baseball games. Heather enjoys photography and spending time at the Cape with her family.
