Heal Veterinary Clinic is an in-patient companion animal care facility providing wellness, general medicine, and surgical care in a modern, efficient, and compassionate environment. 

Dr Amanda K. Leef, DVM

Dr. Amanda Leef’s journey to practice ownership started when she caught a snake as a small child.  She graduated in 2003 from Michigan State University’s DVM program and since then has worked in rural mixed animal practices, high-volume spay-neuter programs, animal shelters, and urban small-animal practices.  She has been involved in the animal welfare community including delivering training programs for animal service workers and collaborating with non-profits. 


In her free time, Dr. Leef enjoys caring for her evolving menagerie of pets and participating in a variety of outdoor activities.  

Dr. Kristie Mientka DVM

Dr. Kristie Mientka grew up in Amherst, Massachusetts and completed her pre-veterinary degree at U-Mass.  Before earning her veterinary degree from the Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2014 she interned with the Humane Society of the United States in their farm animal welfare section in Washington, DC.


During vet school, she traveled to Udaipur, India where she worked at an animal shelter and developed her passion for international veterinary medicine. Since then, she has worked at the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals hospital in Dublin, Ireland and the Animal Rescue Kingdom in Chiang Mai, Thailand. 

She has spent the last  3-1/2 years working as a vet at a small animal practice in Sydney, Australia. Having just moved back to Boston only a few months ago Kristie enjoys exploring her new South End neighborhood with her husband, Sam. She is also an avid runner, and has completed three marathons in the last year.  When she’s not at Heal, you can find her teaching spin classes in Boston or hanging out with her two Aussie cats, Wesley and Trundle. 

Dr. Leigh Davis VMD

Dr. Davis grew up in nearby Carlisle, MA, riding horses and teaching riding lessons. She enjoyed geeking out about various equine diseases and how to care for sick or wounded animals, leading her to a veterinary career. After undergrad at Williams College, she attended the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 2016.   


After graduation, Dr. Davis spent three years in Philadelphia at a veterinary hospital specializing in primary and emergency care for cats and dogs. There she focused on partnering with clients to form treatment plans best suited to their individual needs. Dr. Davis is thrilled to be back in the Boston area, joining Heal Vet in 2019. She lives in Newton with her husband and their dog, Ollie. In her free time, she enjoys running, hiking, cross-country skiing, and cooking.

Dr. Xuan Mai Vo, DVM

Dr. Vo decided to pursue her career in veterinary medicine as a young lass growing up in Switzerland and the Boston area when she realized she preferred to treat horse wounds rather than actually prepare for her riding lessons. She is a graduate of the Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine and has earned additional professional certifications in veterinary acupuncture and pain management.  Throughout her career, Dr. Vo has worked in private practice, shelter medicine and academia.  She maintains a deep commitment to improving the quality of life in animals and supporting the bond between animals and their families. 


Dr. Vo is off duty for the Summer and Fall while she travels in Europe and Washington State, but we look forward to her return in the fall or winter 2019.  Normally she is available for acupuncture, pain management consults, and quality of life consults at Heal and for house calls (location dependent).   Learn more about her on her website: 

Capricia Graves, Receptionist

Capricia is a West Coast native and has been interested in animals, mostly horses and other farm animals, from a young age. She moved to Massachusetts in 2010 and is now studying to be a vet tech.

Outside of vet work, Capricia loves sewing, videogames, seeing as many movies as possible, and hanging out with her cat, Pixel.  She is pictured her with our hospital cat Phoebe - photo by Philip Bundman who you can reach on our Art page.

Arianna Enos, Receptionist

Arianna grew up watching avidly watching Animal Planet and taking care of many pocket pets as well as her beloved cat Ace, who was with her from crib to high school graduation. Her first dog was an elderly chihuahua mix her family foster-failed through the local shelter where she volunteered.

She transitioned from working in a primary care physician office to a veterinary hospital in 2018 and realized that's where she belongs. Her human medicine background helped her learn veterinary medicine with ease - she's accidentally referred to the client as a patient only once or twice!  In her free time she can be found at home with her cat, Luna, in her lap at all times or out supporting the local arts scene in Boston. 

Amy Cameron, Head Technician

Amy comes to Heal with many years of experience in small-animal practices and animal shelters, with a focus on surgery.  In addition, she has worked as a dog trainer in private settings.  A voracious learner, she is currently continuing her veterinary technician education to complete the requirements for certification.  Amy has completed the Fear Free Certification for veterinary professionals.  She looks forward to utilizing her skills and ever-expanding knowledge to ensure that we provide the very best care for your pet.  


In her free time, she is happiest when going on long runs in the woods.  She fantasizes about being able to do this while eating ice cream and carrying armfuls of puppies and kittens. 

Lindsay Webster CVT, Veterinary Technician

Lindsay comes to Heal with more than ten years of experience working in various aspects of veterinary medicine, including small-animal general practice, emergency and specialty care practice, practice management and staff training.  She has specific interests in surgery, emergency medicine, and inpatient care with a passion for client education.  Lindsay looks forward to pursuing her Fear-Free Certification. 


In her free time, Lindsay enjoys the beach, scrap-booking and photography.  She loves spending time with her husband and son doing anything outdoors.  In addition to the two men in her life, Lindsay shares her home with a dog and two cats.  

Sue Miller CVT, Veterinary Technician

Sue brings nearly two decades of veterinary technician experience to Heal. She has worked in a variety of settings including general practice, shelter and high volume spay/neuter programs, and the surgery and anesthesia department of referral hospitals.


Sue likes to make sure her patients are as happy and comfortable as possible while at the clinic, whether that means employing low-stress handling during an exam or providing a cozy bed during recovery from surgery. She has always had a passion for helping animals, and her entire career is a reflection of her dedication and compassion.


When not at work, Sue likes to spend time with her husband, daughter and several pets.  She especially enjoys hiking with her new dog and getting her hands dirty as a member of her local community garden. 

Carol Leung, Veterinary Technician

Carol was born and raised in Hong Kong. From a young age she’s always been an animal lover. After high school she immigrated to the US in pursuit of a better education and a career in the veterinary field. When she finally got to work as a technician, it was clear that this was her calling all along. 



With over a decade and a half of experience in general practice, she was very excited to join the team at Heal. She looks forward to making every visit a pleasant experience for fur-babies and their families.   During the weekends, you can find Carol and her husband Ray relaxing at Cranes Beach or cheering for the Patriots in the colder months. 

Sarah Leger, Technician

Sarah was born and raised in the Metrowest area of MA and has always had a love for animals. She first entered the veterinary field as a receptionist in 2009 at a busy general practice. From then on Sarah knew this was a career path she wanted to take. Her experience grew from working in a kennel setting, training to be a technician assistant to becoming a veterinary technician at 24 hour emergency hospital. She has spent the last few years working in a general practice and is eager to advance her skills and knowledge.


In her free time Sarah loves being outdoors, going for walks with her husky Niko, cooking and spending time with family and friends. 

Samantha Pattie, Veterinary Technician

Samantha recently moved to our area from the Southwest and we are excited by her instant mesh with our team. 

Jessica Wright CVT Veterinary Technician

Jessica graduated from the University of Vermont in 2002 with a degree in Animal Sciences. With more than a decade's experience in the field of shelter medicine she has developed a strong understanding of population management and herd health.  Most recently, she attained certification in low-stress handling techniques, allowing her to provide more gentle, compassionate care.

When not at work, Jessica enjoys spending time with her family, hiking with her dogs and gardening. 

Jude Aboukhater, Veterinary Technician

We loved having Jude her as an intern this summer, so we hired her!  She is at Heal part-time around her scheudle of pre-veterinary studies at Boston College where she is double majoring in Biology and Philosophy and expects to graduate in 2020. 


Jude left her war-torn country of Syria only four years ago; traveling to Guatemala, volunteered with a Veterinarian in Antigua, and this year will be going off to Belize for yet another Veterinary internship. 


The source of her passion for this career is her yellow Labrador Roxy who came with her from Aleppo.  In her free time she practices the piano, plays tennis with her friends, and eats noodles.

We are currently hiring for Veterinary Technicians

Heal is growing!   Our staff is humming along building strong relationships with our clients and patients.  Right now we would like to fill two full or part-time Technician positions.


And are always happy to meet new people in all aspects of the veterinary field.  Please call or email if you want to make a connection.
