Heather Brooks, D.V.M.
Dr. Brooks grew up in Annapolis, Maryland. She completed her undergraduate studies right here in Salisbury at Salisbury University, receiving a Bachelor of Science Degree in 1993. She then attended North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1997. Dr. Brooks has roots in equine medicine, but has been dedicated to small animal medicine for the past 15 years. She has owned Wicomico Veterinary Hospital since 2004 and moved us into our new building in 2007. She takes pride in providing our local community with high quality veterinary care paired with a focus on each patient as an individual. Dr. Brooks has taken advanced courses in dentistry and laser surgery techniques. In her spare time, she and Jeremy enjoy going to the beach, paddling, and hiking with their chocolate Labrador Retriever, Fineas, and Landseer Newfoundland mix, Jona. She spends her time at home reading, cooking, and catering to her Scottish Wildcat look-alike, Keagan.

Kristina Elkins
Kris started with Wicomico Veterinary Hospital in February 2009 as a receptionist with no experience in the veterinary field. Since then, she has worked her way through many roles, and has become extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of veterinary care. While her duties now include administrative support, her favorite part of her job is still at the front desk, greeting our two and four-legged friends! Kris is actively involved with training all staff members to uphold the highest standards of customer service and all things involved with veterinary reception. Kris is a compassionate problem-solver, with over a decade of personal investment in our clients and patients. We truly cannot imagine Wicomico Veterinary Hospital without her! Kris is an avid "foodieā€¯ and a fantastic cook. In her spare time she can most often be found in her garden or in her kitchen making something delicious.

Lindsey Glanz
Lindsey officially joined our team in January 2020 after shadowing/volunteering with us for over two years prior to that!

At home, Lindsey enjoys spending time with her three cats, Foster, Shooter, and Torti, her rescue husky-mix, Luna, her rambunctious golden retriever, Dalkey, and her tiny hamster, Birdie! Lindsey is an active member of our Salisbury community and can be found attending many local events!
