Julie Breault, Practice Manager

Julie Breault, Practice Manager

Julie is the practice manager of Heartland Animal Hospital. She has been working in the veterinary field since 1989. Julie and her husband, Dr. Gary, have 2 kids together, Sydney and Ava. Besides managing both kids and their activities is a foster parent for homeless pets when needed. The dog in her picture is Piper, a dog who was part of the Magnum Fund and was helped to find a new forever home! Julie became active in the march against Animal Abuse after she met a puppy named Magnum in 2005. His story along with some very passionate supporters inspired our legislators to pass a law that enforces stricter punishment on those people that neglect or abuse an animal. Heartland clients continue to donate and have helped to offset the costs of many needy pets through their recovery and on to their forever home.
