When Regina Watters was a child, she already knew she wanted to work with animals. She grew up on a farm and “examined” all the animals she could get her hands on. She was valedictorian of her high school class and then headed to NCSU, where she earned her degree with honors in zoology. Her DVM with honors was awarded by Auburn School of Veterinary Medicine. Her career has spanned experience in a moderate-sized city animal hospital, a rural county practice, and her own house-call practice in the Piedmont area. She has joined Heal House Call Veterinarian to continue her work serving the people of her county and neighboring areas. Her approach to her practice is to educate her clients so they can be advocates for their pets’ care and long-term health. “My mission is to serve and help everyone and every pet that I can with those tools I have been given,” she says.
