Dr. Caroline B. Hecker, CFV


Dr. Hecker grew up in Charleston, South Carolina in a family of animal trainers and biologists. She got her Bachelor’s of Biology at Vassar College in New York, and studied for her veterinary degree in rainy Edinburgh, Scotland. She lives with her 15-year-old African Grey parrot, Quito, a cat, Eris, and a very energetic dog, Colby. She is especially fond of all cats and birds, but loves treating all animals. In her free time she enjoys biking with her dog, birding, and knitting sweaters she can’t really use in sunny Florida.
