Dr. Heather Austin grew up in Peachtree City, GA. Dr. Austin first fell in love with the mountain west when she attended Colorado State University, graduating with a Bachelors in Animal Science. Following an interest in ruminant nutrition, she then obtained a Masters in Animal Science from North Carolina State University.
It was during her time in North Carolina that she met her husband, Brandon, and they moved to Oklahoma. Dr. Austin graduated with a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Oklahoma State University in 2011, with an interest in mixed animal practice. Following graduation, Dr. Austin took a position at Skiatook Animal Clinic; a mixed animal practice serving the rural communities north of Tulsa, OK.
Dr. Austin is thrilled to be in Billings, to offer veterinary care to the members of the community, and to be closer to her husband’s family in the Billings area. While she enjoys small animal wellness and internal medicine, Dr. Austin loves the variety and challenges small animal practice provides.
In her free time, Dr. Austin enjoys spending time with her family, enjoying the amazing outdoor opportunities, hiking, fishing, reading, and gardening.
