Dr. Kathleen Heneghan grew up on the Northwest Side of Chicago and received her bachelor's degree from Loyola University. She first came to us as a University of Wisconsin veterinary student extern in 1993. Upon graduation, she joined us as a full time doctor in July of 1994. Veterinary medicine is her true calling, and her interests include dermatology, oncology, behavior, ultrasound and surgery. Over the years, she has adopted pets that "found" her at work: an occupational hazard! Rolo, her Lab/Pit mix, came to her in the summer of 2017, and has been keeping her busy ever since. Don't they both have great smiles?!!
Dr. Heneghan has been active in the Chicago Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) since graduation and served as CVMA President in 2007. She followed Dr. Fox as chair of their Public Education committee for several years. She has regularly contributed to newspaper articles and appeared on local television, as well as at pet shows and school career days. She is a charter member of the Loyola University Biology Alumni Advisory Board and is a frequent attendee at their student networking events.
She loves to travel and works to support that habit. In her free time, she also enjoys traditional Irish (and other) music, spending time with family and friends, and exploring new places around town. As Dr. Fox says, she is a great communicator (aka "she talks a lot") and is delighted to get to know her patients and clients. Oh, and she wants you all to know that the Charlie's Angels pose was her idea!
