We are so proud of Dr. Heather Brookshire. Last month, Inside Business magazine named her as one of Hampton Roads’ top Women in Business for 2020. These awards celebrate women who are successful in their business and careers, while serving as mentors to others and volunteering in their community. It’s no surprise that she was among the impressive list of honorees.

In addition to operating one of a few woman-owned veterinary ophthalmology practices in the U.S., Dr. Heather is active among regional, statewide and industry veterinary organizations; hosts educational events to increase awareness of ocular conditions among our region’s general veterinary community; and provides free eye care services to a host of animals, from those at the Virginia Zoo and Virginia Living Museum to pets in need at local animal shelter and rescue organizations.

You can read more about Dr. Heather’s work and her advice for women starting their careers in this special edition of Inside Business. Congratulations Dr. Heather, and to all the honorees! What a wonderful achievement.
