Heidi Britt-Sherrock

Veterinarian

Dr. Sherrock grew up (and continues) building fence, pulling weeds and baling hay in the Williamsville area and graduated from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine a long time ago. After several years in shelter and emergency/referral medicine Heidi has relished the last few years of general practice and becoming a part of the family of many of her patients and their guardians. She is thankful and blessed to steward Hope Veterinary Care with her dedicated staff of squirrel chasers and for the opportunity to help those in the community. Heidi has two grown sons, Clay and Kenyon, who's empty nesting spurred her to pursue Hope and four (variably aged and each with a story) cats, Thomas, Emily, Orange and Black, who consider her their personal pillow and heat source.

Sam

Lead Veterinary Assistant

Sam started her animal career at a local shelter and spay/neuter clinic. Specializing in sick and injured, her love of helping animals pushed her into becoming an assistant and leader. She started working with Dr. Sherrock and feels as if she found another family. Sam excitedly joined Hope Veterinary Care and the amazing team they make! Along with her general technical duties and superb squirrel chasing abilities, Sam plays a key role in following up with her patients care and routinely discussing their progress with pet owners (and Dr. Sherrock couldn't get through a day with out her). Sam loves exploring whether that be hiking, or a good video game! She has two furry sons of the feline variety who she talks about a lot, Jim and Maynard.
Sam is Fear-Free Certified.

Kayla

Veterinary Assistant

Kayla started her veterinary career at a local hospital as a veterinary assistant extern two years ago. Having grown up in a small town, she found her love for animals on the family farm and through volunteering at local shelters. She is excited to grow in her role as a veterinary assistant, pursue certification as a veterinary nurse and remain with her work family as they bring Hope Veterinary Care to life. Kayla and her husband Josh, will be found spending time outdoors unless the Blackhawks or the St Louis Cardinals are playing. They have two fur babies: Cooper, a lovable, yellow lab and Cola, a crazy, hound/lab mix. And even though Kayla prefers the Cards, she understands why Dr Sherrock is a HUGE Chicago Cubs fan and she is prepared to listen to the Cubs games and watch the W fly.

Melinda

Patient Care Coordinator

Melinda joined the Hope family in July 2017 and we are so happy to have her! After working at a local coffee shop, Melinda decided that she wanted a career with more depth and if possible, with pets. She has been in the field since as a receptionist and now brings her friendly smile to Hope! When Melinda is not busy answering the phones, scheduling appointments, and helping you and your babies have the BEST visit possible. She has 2 fur babies Harper Jean and Evette and enjoys spending time cooking, hiking and playing the ukele.
