What am I passionate about?
Each person on this Earth has the capacity to be kind. Find a way to be beautifully human, and give without any expectation aside from knowing you blessed another living being (person, animal, or plant) in need. Genuine charity or philanthropy should not be self-serving or only help those close to us, nor does it have to be broadcast for accolades. Spread some light into the world! "Make a difference about something other than yourselves." -Toni Morrison
Five of Dr. Wingfield's favorite life-guiding thoughts of reflection:
1. "Courage is fear that has said its prayers." -Unknown
2. "You cannot be a person of purpose yet entertain a life of foolishness." -RC Blakes, Jr.
3. "If you have never taken a loss then you are fighting below your appropriate weight class." -Judge Lynn Toler
4. "Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom." -Aristotle
5. "Being thoughtful or courteous does not equate to being weak or a doormat. There is strength in carrying oneself with tactfulness, integrity, and dignity in the face of rudeness and ignorance." -K. Wingfield
Dr. Wingfield comes to us with a unique background. She is a former military officer who also has years of experience working in private industry and for the federal government. She holds a BS in Chemical Engineering, and a MS in Technology Management. Dr. Wingfield finally decided to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian while working as a Quality Engineer for the Department of Defense, and her interest in public health arose while employed at the Food and Drug Administration. She obtained her DVM from the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine while simultaneously completing her Master of Public Health (MPH - Infectious Disease Concentration) from Virginia Tech, both in 2019. Dr. Wingfield has an interest in various animal species and plans on gaining more proficiency in treating a myriad of species while at PCVH. Dr. Wingfield is an advocate for veterinary preventive medicine, but also has an interest in nutrition, wildlife medicine and conservation, zoonotic diseases, geriatrics, and marine/aquatics medicine. She considers herself an introvert (and is quite comfortable in this realization!) Her personal interests include music, reflective reading, enjoying live theatrical productions, traveling, exercising, trying new foods/recipes, sharing laughs with family and friends...and she also has a special knack for styling hair!
When you love what you do...you work from your heart. Pet Care Vetinary Hosiptal is a great place to bring your family pet. If anyone knows what Person Centered is, they work from a pet-centered approach. I love it! From the care of our beloved rabbit who has now passed to our Savannah Cat-Ani, we would not have chosen another place.
I have been bringing my guinea pigs and rabbits to Pet Care for about 10 years. Dr's Fisher and Wallace have given them excellent care. They have a caring, friendly manner towards both their patients and their owners As doctors, I trust their diagnoses and opinions and always found them to be correct. The office staff and veterinarian staff are warm and friendly as well. I love going there and highly recommend them.
I love this place. Our lab had a salivary mucocele that needed surgery about two weeks ago. They were some warm and comforting as we had tons of questions before the surgery. They were more than happy to answer and gave our pup so much love. They genuinely care about each animal they see. Every time I walk in they are warm and welcoming and I highly recommend this vet!! Thank you for everything!
I always have a great experience at Pet Care. All who work there are very kind and truly care for your pet. I never have to wait long with my rabbit, BB. I am so glad my friend Michelle recommended them.
I cannot say enough good things about Pet Care Veterinary Hospital! Our 3 dogs (Buddy, Yo-Yo, and Ethel) usually see Dr. Hulls or Dr. Piper.. both are very honest, compassionate, and talented vets and both are amazing with our crazy crew! Everyone from the front desk to the techs to the vets are always friendly and helpful. I have no doubt our furbabies are in great hands whenever they are at Pet Care Veterinary Hospital!
