Dr. Heinnickel was born and raised just a few miles away from the clinic on Heinnickel Farms. His love of animals led to his study of animal bioscience at Penn State University, from which he graduated in May of 1999. He then continued his studies at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Ohio State University. He graduated Magna Cum Laude, earning his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in June of 2003. He started practicing veterinary medicine right out of school, and in March of 2007, he moved home to start his own business. “Doc,” as he's affectionately called, started out seeing primarily large animal patients, but after four years, he opened the small animal clinic. As an owner of a small business, veterinarian, and father of five children, Dr. Heinnickel rarely has much free time, but when he does, he spends it rebuilding trucks, making home improvements, and playing the drums.
Teresa HeinnickelOffice Manager
Co-owner and practice manager, Teresa grew up on a local dairy farm where she was no stranger to long hours. Her love of animals and hard work ethic quickly grew into a career when she graduated from the veterinary technician program at Median School of Allied Health. She worked as a technician for 15 years before taking time off to raise her five children, affectionately referred to as the “Heinnickel Herd.” However, she could not stay away from the field of veterinary medicine, so she returned to serve as practice manager of Five Points Veterinary Services in 2011. Much like her husband, Doc, Teresa doesn't have much free time between running the practice and managing the chaos of five children. Most of her time is spent searching for new opportunities for her children and business, but on the rare night off, she enjoys relaxing with a glass of wine.
Southern girl to the core and Virginia native, Dr. Naumann graduated from Ole Miss in 2009 with a Bachelor's degree in biology. She then went to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Chapaign for veterinary school, from which she graduated with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2013. She joined the Five Points family in November of 2014. She loves working with horses and reading about all the new developments in veterinary medicine. She currently lives on Hidden Acres with her husband, Richie, their beloved dog, Hercules, and Hereford cattle. In her free time, she loves watching college football games and reading.
Life-long animal lover, Maddie has earned her Bachelor's Degree at Penn State University in veterinary and biomedical sciences with a minor in equine sciences. She spent 4 months working at Action for Animals before joining the Five Points team in May of 2018.
