    Cherie Heiny

    Cherie started with VCA in April, 2010 as one of our receptionists. She has a deep love for animals and enjoys helping people and their pets stay healthy. Cherie has 5 cats and a dog named Penny. She enjoys spending time with her two children and pets.

    Why am I here?

    I orginally started working here to change careers from retail and because I have always had a strong passion for animals. After being around the patients and seeing the doctors and my coworkers caring and dedication to their treatment I came to love it even more.

    Amber Lawrence

    Hi! My name is Amber Lawrence, and I am a receptionist here at VCA Orange City Animal Hospital. I started in October of 2012, but then left to explore the world, but now I have been welcomed back with open arms and I am here to stay! I have two little fur babies at home, one is my 5yr old Jack Russell, Chloe. She keeps me on my toes with all of her energy, but she is my hyper kid, and I love her so much! My second is a new addition, and she is a 12yr old Shih Tzu named Honey. She is a gentle soul, but has recently started coming out of her shell and can run and play with Chloe with ease! It is so great to watch Honey become part of the family, and she and Chloe are now best friends! I love working for VCA, and in my opinion it is one of the best jobs in the world! I have over 15 years of Customer Service experience, and 5 years working with animals professionally. It is the best of both worlds and I couldn't imagine doing anything else! If you are new to us, welcome! We strive to not only meet, but exceed all expectations for you and your pets!
