Herbert A. Hulls, DVM

Herbert A. Hulls, DVM

Conservation: Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle, Respect
Eating healthy foods, meat included
Not littering the planet

Five Things Dr. Hulls Would Like You To Know About Him:

1. I enjoy the outdoors and nature to include backpacking, birdwatching and sky watching.

2. I like to work with my hands building, fixing and making things.

3. I love music and live performances.

4. I visit museums and enjoy visual arts.

5. I own a megalodon tooth.


Dr. Herbert A. Hulls earned his veterinary degree in 1990 from The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, where he also attended undergraduate school. Although born in Montana, Dr. Hulls considers himself a native Buckeye, having grown up in Ohio, where his sister and parents still reside. Childhood was full of country living and lots of animals. Interaction with cattle, horses, sheep, goats, rabbits, dogs, cats, raccoons, orphan fawns, and much more was the norm. An innate interest in science, medicine, and animals all drew him into the veterinarian profession. Upon graduation from vet school, he worked in rural western Ohio, making lots of farm calls along with treating companion animals in the clinic where he worked.

Practicing veterinary medicine at Pet Care felt natural and energizing. The attitude of providing high quality medical and surgical care to patients with sincere compassion is at the heart of our hospital’s motives. The medicine and surgery of “exotics,” which are more popular than ever, have been at the forefront during the past 10 years of Dr. Hulls’ practice. These formerly unconventional pets, which include birds, ferrets, rabbits, reptiles, and amphibians, are a large source of special interest to him. A wide variety of orthopedic repairs and soft tissue surgeries have long provided him with many rewards. However, special interests in exotics and surgery only help round out the basic joys of treating the conventional canine and feline patients from puppy- and kittenhood through to their senior years.

Sarah Kimbrel, DVM

What am I passionate about?

As a Fear Free certified veterinarian and an advocate for animals, I feel that it is vitally important to keep vet visits as positive as possible for our little loved ones. There are so many things that can be done at the hospital setting and at home to decrease stress and help our pets feel more comfortable. I believe that animals’ physical well-being is connected with their emotional well-being and each are essential components of what make up the human-animal bond. With the help of Fear Free techniques, I will strive to ensure that your pet gets the highest quality care.

Five Things Dr. Kimbrel Would Like You To Know About Her:

1. I grew up in a small town in rural Mississippi with 5 younger brothers. Yes, I am the only girl!

2. My interests include neurology, ultrasonography, exotics, and client communication/education.

3. I have 4 critter kids: 2 rescued pit bulls, 1 cat and 1 bearded dragon.

4. When I have some free time, I enjoy running and hiking on nature trails with my dogs.

5. I am a graduate of Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

I am a firm believer in the idea that the mouth is the gateway to the body and that good oral hygiene is integral to overall health.

Kelsey  Parker, DVM

Kelsey Parker, DVM

Kelsey Parker, DVM, is a big proponent of all things critter but is especially fond of cats, pigs, and birds (major chicken fan!).

Her experience with avian species was further broadened when she accepted a position at a bird park, working with many waterfowl and exotic birds.

Earning her degree from Lincoln Memorial University College of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Parker understands the constant changes and challenges that are faced by the veterinary professional today. She is a believer in lifelong learning and finds the daily interactions with various species and their humans to be tremendously rewarding. Dr. Parker shares her home with two wonderful pets – a cat named Piper, and Zara, a Great Dane.

Caitlin Smith, DVM

Caitlin Smith, DVM

Dr. Caitlin Smith has both traveled to and lived in many different places, so to pick a favorite would be hard but not impossible. She found the Galápagos Islands to be absolutely breath taking. Recently relocating to Virginia from Colorado with her husband and 2 dogs, Dr. Smith is delighted to be working at Pet Care and thrilled to make Virginia her new homeport.

A graduate of the North Carolina State University veterinary school (2017), Dr. Smith finds client education to be one of the most satisfying parts of being a DVM. She is interested in learning more about exotics and is amazed at the different species who are treated here at Pet Care. Soft tissue surgery is something she excels at but is definitely interested in working with dental patients in the future.

Karen , Social Media/Marketing Manager

Social Media/Marketing Manager

While working for Norfolk Public Schools, Karen discovered a hidden talent – the ability to create campaigns and slogans that would entertain yet educate all at the same time.  Retiring as a Media Specialist in 2009 gave her the opportunity to begin working with animals and their parents in a way that would benefit them and Pet Care Veterinary Hospital as well as provide her with a new, highly creative, and challenging career.  
One of Karen’s side jobs in the ‘70’s through the late ‘90’s was free lance writing, specializing in music and the people who created it.  Working on press releases and autobiographical liner notes taught her how to creatively construct sentences that would attract even the most reluctant of readers.  Great experience that prepared her for today’s social media fans.
Working with domestic rabbits has been a mainstay in her life since her college days.  She has been involved in local rabbit rescues since 1988 and considers the rabbit to be her spirit animal.

Veterinary Assistants



Veterinary Assistant

Nate began his professional life in law enforcement and worked in several sectors.  He was never able to find a good fit for his personality, so he decided to try out the business world.  He took a job working for GEICO where he stayed for 8 years.  He then worked for a small, start-up company, Snapsheet Inc., but, once COVID hit, he realized that life is too short to not be working in a field that ignited his passionate spirit.  Animals were definitely on the short list of possible careers and, since making the decision to work with them, he couldn't be happier.

Nate and his wife, Lauren, have been together for 10 years.  They've spent most of their time here in Virginia Beach and absolutely love the food choices available in the Hampton Roads area.  They enjoy trying out new restaurants and breweries and, when not eating, they relax around the house with their menagerie - Luna (dog), cats Jax, Dexter, and Princess Penelope Potts, and their bearded dragon, Mika.

As a volunteer for Evelyn's Wildlife, Nate enjoys being able to connect with nature while helping animals in need.  His answer to "what's your favorite animal?" changes all the time.  From spiders and snakes to cute baby raccoons, each one resonates with him.  Evelyn's Wildlife works with Pet Care so being able to see the full involvement when wildlife needs medical care makes his volunteer experiences so much more meaningful.

By the way, should you see Nate while here at Pet Care, ask him about his favorite type of food.  Right now it's Cajun and if you know of a really good place here in Virginia Beach, please let him know!
