  • Dr. Heidi Brees, DVM


    Dr. Heidi Brees said from the time she was 3-years-old that she wanted to be a veterinarian and help animals. During high school and collage she volunteered at animal shelters, socializing and training, hoping to help the animals be able to find forever homes. She left the Pacific Northwest to attend Kansas State University for her Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science, then returned to receive her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree from Washington State University in 2020. While one of her favorite parts of veterinary medicine is the diversity seen any given day, she has a particular interest in soft tissue surgery, dentistry, and reproduction. She loves working with dogs and cats, and also enjoys goats and sheep.

    In her time away from helping animals, she enjoys baking, fencing, hiking, traveling, doing craft projects, and hanging out at home with her three cats; Scamp, Pig, and Little Man.

    After working in the recreational retail field for several years, Dr. Natalie Warren followed her lifelong passion for veterinary medicine and attended vet school at Colorado State University.

    Now, Dr. Warren works part time as a relief veterinarian, filling in for vets on the Kitsap Peninsula and surrounding areas when they need to take a break. She says the talented and friendly staff at Belltowne Veterinary Center have made the clinic a great fit for her, and so the clinic has become a pretty regular gig.

    The rest of Dr. Warren’s life is under the management of a couple of horses, 18 chickens, 2 barn cats and 2 house cats.  She and her horse Hank are training for 3-day eventing competitions. Any free time is taken up with gardening and medium-distance running.
