Dr. Jane Barber has devoted her whole life to the well-being of animals.She set her sights on becoming a veterinarian when she was just eleven. She did just that and a whole lot more. After eight years to become a veterinarian, she went on to nine more years of specialty training in behavior and theriogenology (reproduction and neonatology). She spent so many years in school that she did not settle down to marry and start a family until she was forty. Dr. Barber and her husband, Scott Nephew, have two “tall, dark and handsome” sons, Preston and Jonathan. She is active instate, national and international professional organizations and in the Lake Norman community in which her family resides. Dr. Barber believes that 60 is the new 30. In her 60’s, she became licensed to teach Zumba when her instructor fell ill and could no longer teach the class. She still teaches the class today. Fascinated with cetaceans, she (also while in her 60’s) went on an excursion to swim with humpback whales in the middle of the ocean. Her work as a veterinarian is her passion; she loves it and her patients. Each day spent in service to her fur friends and families is her joy and privilege.
Dr Heidi Morgan knew she wanted to become a veterinarian since she was 5 years old, with purposeful focus pursued her goal. She dreaded having to pick a major in undergrad, but was saved from the choice by being accepted to veterinary school after just 2 years of undergrad. She graduated from Michigan State University with her Bachelor’s of Science in Veterinary Medicine in 1996, and graduated from Michigan State University with her DVM in 1998. She worked full-time in small animal practice for the first 13 years after graduation in Michigan. Her husband helped her fulfill her lifetime dream to live in another country, Germany, with her family in 2011 to 2013. She had a blast, but missed her passion, practicing veterinary medicine, desperately. After returning to the States, she started practicing again in 2014 here in North Carolina. Her interests are in internal medicine, helping to guide owners and their pets through transitions in life, feline medicine (dogs are awesome, as well, though), as well as a burgeoning interest in behavior. Her 2 cats deign to allow her, her husband, 2 children, and her Golden Retriever to live in their household. Dr Morgan is an avid reader, loves to learn new things – be it veterinary medicine or becoming fluent in German, plays at the cello, and enjoys raising her family.
