Dr. Heidi Nascimi is originally from northern Virginia, 10 miles outside of Washington D.C. She received her Bachelor of Science in Biology at Virginia Tech and loved Blacksburg so much that she stayed to attend the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation, she completed a one-year rotating small animal internship at Friendship Hospital for Animals located in Washington, D.C. She then spent a year in Denver before moving to Austin in February 2013. Dr. Nascimi enjoys surgery, dentistry, neurology, and preventative medicine. She tries to spend as much time outdoors with her two fur babies, Australian Shepherds Roman and Siena. Dr. Nascimi has been traveling the world over the last couple of years and is thrilled to be back in Austin.
