Dr. Keri Reeves grew up in Rhode Island.

She and her husband met here and remained in the south with their 2 children. Her furry family includes a crazy rescue Beagle and 3 sweet kitties. Dr. Reeves’ goal was to become a veterinarian ever since she was in elementary school. She combined her love for science, math, animals, and people into a career.

Her mission is to provide the best and most up to date care for her clients and patients with compassion at all times. Dr. Reeves is a Fear Free and Cat Friendly practitioner and has served on several committees for the American Animal Hospital Association.

Dr. Sunita Driehuys

Sunita Driehuys, VMD

Dr. Sunita Driehuys has been a practicing small animal veterinarian since 1994, when she received her veterinary degree with magna cum laude honors from the University of Pennsylvania. She furthered her training with a one year internship that emphasized emergency and critical care medicine and practiced at several high-caliber small animal practices in the Triangle. These experiences led to her desire to create a veterinary practice that could combine the highest quality veterinary care with personalized attention and relationships. This vision was fulfilled through Chapel Hill Mobile Veterinary Housecalls, which is now a part of Kindred Heart Animal Hospital. Drs. Reeves and Driehuys have been friends and colleagues for 25 years and are excited to be working together again.  Dr. Driehuys has been certified as a Diplomate by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) specializing in canine and feline practice since 2008.

She lives in Chapel Hill, NC with her husband and has 3 grown sons, a dog and 2 cats.  She enjoys cooking, volunteering with feral cats and supporting her family’s ultimate frisbee endeavors.

Angela

Lindsay Warner, DVM

Dr. Lindsay Warner grew up in Chapel Hill, earned her bachelor’s degree from Duke University, and graduated with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from North Carolina State University in 2010.  Dr. Warner’s understanding of and respect for animals was apparent from an early age as she spent time on her relatives’ dairy farms, worked on horse farms, and took care of her family’s and friends’ pets.  Her childhood family veterinarian was kind enough to allow her to shadow him when she was in high school and that is when she found her love for the challenge and art of veterinary medicine.

Upon graduation from veterinary school, Dr. Warner worked for two years as a small animal practitioner in Mebane, NC before joining the same family veterinarian who had allowed her to shadow at the practice he started in Apex, NC, where she worked for the next 12 years.  Dr. Warner’s special interests include general preventative medicine, geriatric medicine, and pain management/anesthesia.

Outside of work, Dr. Warner enjoys spending time with her dogs, cat, chickens, and bees (she is a certified beekeeper), as well as gardening, with a passion for native plants. She also is a volunteer with the Duke Palliative Care department.

Angela

Angela, RVT, Practice Manager

Angela grew up in Pennsylvania but has called New York, Massachusetts, and North Carolina her home. She developed her love of animals from her mother who raised and bred Persian and Himalayan cats.

She graduated in 2003 with a degree in Veterinary Technology from Mount Ida College in Newton Massachusetts. It was after this that she met Dr. Reeves where they worked at a small animal hospital outside of Boston. A few years later they reconnected here in North Carolina. They have now been working together for almost 15 years.

Angela has worked in general practice for most of her career although she has spent some time working at an emergency clinic and a zoo. Her interests include client education, senior pet care, and physical therapy.

She loves all animals, but everyone knows that she truly loves dachshunds. In her free time, she enjoys baking, reading, watching movies, going to the beach, shopping for things to keep her pups happy, and spending time with her husband Morgan, their dogs.

Kelsi

Kelsi, Veterinary Assistant

Kelsi has always had a love for animals, but her passion really began when she was gifted a toy veterinarian cart. From that moment on she wanted to pursue the veterinarian field. She’s worked alongside animals for the past 10 years and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Knowing she can contribute to the wellbeing of animals brings Kelsi the utmost joy. She has a Great Pyrenees, 2 lab mixes, 3 cats and a corn snake! She looks forward to continuing her care for animals at Kindred Heart Animal Hospital.

Kelsi

Hailey, RVT, Veterinary Technician

Although a recent graduate from Central Carolina Community College’s rigorous Veterinary Medical Technology program, she has worked in the veterinary field over 7 years; 5 of those years were spent working along side Dr. Reeves.

Hailey has worked in general practice all her career as well as with some reproductive specialists, but her true passion lies in surgery and anesthesia.

Anyone that truly knows Hailey, knows that she loves bulldogs most of all, but also enjoys spending her time crafting, exploring, and relaxing on the beach with her husband John, English bulldog Dana, and French bulldog Tina.

Kristen

Kristen, Veterinary Receptionist

Kristen is from the midwest, but has called the Triangle area home for ten-plus years. Pets have always been a central part of her life and, among her many adventures with them, her cat KC even joined her for a 1,300 mile drive on the Alaska-Canadian Highway when she was in the Air Force! A graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill with nearly five years of veterinary reception experience, Kristen thoroughly enjoys a lot of things about her job, including the dynamic day-to-day environment.

By far, however, the most fulfilling aspect is getting to interact with others who have a special connection to their fur-babies. Her goal with all of our patients is to help them feel as important to us as they are to their pet-parents; her goal in assisting our clients is to offer the same degree of caring, compassionate support that has meant so much to her when taking care of her own pets over the years. These days, her furry family includes three terriers – Jack, Chelsea and Zoey – as well as a senior cat, Cody. In her “spare” time, she enjoys traveling, working in the garden and, every now and then, reading a good book.

Kristen

Heather, Veterinary Receptionist

Heather grew up in the same place she now calls home, Snow Camp, North Carolina. An only child, she always loved animals but was never allowed to have any. This may have led to her overabundance of pets later in life. Nine all together at one point!

She has an Associate’s degree in Accounting, but soon realized she was much happier in the veterinary setting. Her career began in 2008 when she got her first job as a receptionist.

14 years later and she still finds happiness in getting to know clients and their furry children. Learning more about different diagnoses and being able to educate clients about them is her interest.

In her spare time, she enjoys listening to true crime podcasts, reading mysteries and thrillers, watching sappy Hallmark movies, crafting and spending time with her rambunctious four-year-old, Wes. She lives with her husband, son and 2 little old lady cats, Priscilla and Daisy. She looks forward to loving and caring for another dog one day.

Kristen

Merrill, Veterinary Receptionist

 

Merrill grew up on the coast of Maryland and moved to North Carolina when she went to Guilford College in Greensboro where she majored in Community and Justice Studies. She has a passion for helping animals in her community and has strived to make a difference for pet owners in the Triangle by fostering senior dogs and working to help provide veterinary care to those who cannot afford it. She is always eager to learn something new and is excited to continue her career in the veterinary field with a special interest in senior pet care. Merrill has a background in management and loves working together as a team to help our patients get the care they need! When not working she is busy crafting, getting into a good book, laughing with her husband or putting one of her senior dogs into a stroller.

Kristen

Sophie, Groomer

At our Governors Village Location

Sophie has been grooming for almost 10 years and she is very passionate about it. Her love of animals started at a very young age when she was always playing outside and saying hi to any animal that came her way. She went to Alamance community college for animal husbandry and management but during an amazing opportunity to do an internship with a groomer she feel in love with grooming. She loved the process and how the dogs looked after getting haircuts. Also seeing the client’s faces when they pick up their dogs and how happy they were.

During Sophie’s free time she enjoys hanging out with her family. Also a part of her family is a dog named Odin, two munchkin cats, Alister and Luci and a domestic blue short hair cat name Krampus. When she is not doing this you will find her drinking coffee or at a fabric store trying to figure to what quilt she wants to make next.

Kristen

Tania,RVT

At our Governors Village Location

Tania, originally from Vancouver, BC, Canada, where she pursued a degree in arts. In her off time, she volunteered at a local wildlife rescue and quickly became eager to learn everything possible about animals. Realizing her passion for animal health and welfare was greater than her passion for arts, she decided to switch degrees. She graduated from the Animal Health Technology program at N.A.I.T in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in 2010. She worked in various Canadian cities as a Registered Veterinary Technician before deciding to move to NC with her husband and three rescue cats (Chewbacca, Millie, and Caspurr).

To say Tania loves all things feline, is an understatement and she wears her cat lady badge proudly. She has a strong interest in feline medicine and behavior, physical rehabilitation, and senior pet care. She is proud to be a certified Fear Free and Cat-Friendly practitioner.

When she’s not working she enjoys traveling with her husband, photography, dancing, and spoiling her cat kids.

Kristen

Jennifer, Vet Assistant

Jennifer started her life with animals in a small town in Ohio. As a young child, there was always interest in companion animals as well as large animals. She even recalls enjoying car rides with her grandfather and “mooing” at any cows they passed by and taking naps curled on the dog bed with her old black lab “Hobert”.

Later in life, her mother’s work brought her to North Carolina where, as a young adult she continued to be surrounded by companion animals and also began to grow a strong bond with her equine family members. She spent years riding horses, learning animal husbandry and caring for her heard while learning through close work and eventually an internship with her large animal veterinarian. 

Through out high school, she found an opportunity to combine her natural bond with horses and her ability to care for others in volunteering at a therapeutic riding center on the weekends. During the week she could be found at the local vet working part time as a kennel tech and an assistant. 

In 2016 she took her official adult step into veterinary medicine and began to work full time as a veterinary assistant. Since then, companion animal veterinary practice has been the center of her world, fulfilling her need to love and heal those who need it. She currently has one dog, three cats and one pig. 

Being welcomed to Kindred Heart in 2023, she is excited to continue to grow her career and knowledge base while doing what she loves most. But most importantly, she is looking forward to establishing bonds with clients and pets! 

Deb, Receptionist

At our Governors Village Location

Deb was born in Anchorage, Alaska but was raised in Piedmont North Carolina.  She has been caring for all sorts of animals from an early age.  After graduating with a BS in Mathematics, she was a computer programmer for ~ 20 years before “retiring” to spend more time with family.  She has been a vet receptionist working with Dr Reeves for about 10 years where she enjoys helping the pets and their families.  Her love of animals continues with the next generation where her son & his wife have 3 cats and a Corgi named Biscuit.  Deb and her husband live in rural Orange county with their horses and dog, Charlie.  Whenever there’s time, she loves to curl up in front of a roaring fireplace.

Kristen

Shelby, RVT

At our Governors Village Location

Shelby has loved animals of all sizes since she was very young. Growing up on her family’s farm in Chapel Hill allowed her to play in hay barns, round up cattle and show goats and cows through high school. This, and the volunteer opportunities, is what led her to want to be a veterinary technician. She graduated from Central Carolina Community College in May with a degree in Veterinary Technology and will soon be sitting for her national boards. For now, though, she is fondly known as “Tech-let” to her friends at Kindred Heart.

When she is not studying for the boards, she enjoys spending time with her pup who is a hound mix named Ainsley. She also enjoys being on the beach, watching a good TV show, spending time with her cows and doing animal photography.

Her goal in life is to make a difference in animal welfate and improve the wellbeing of every creature. She hopes to do that through her career as a registered Veterinary Technician.
