Sophie M. Heikkila , D.V.M.
Dr. Sophie Heikkila

Sophie M. Heikkila, DVM is originally from Loveland,
Ohio (near Cincinnati). She rode hunters as a kid, and switched to dressage as a teenager. She has aspired to be an equine veterinarian for as long as she can remember. She graduated cum laude with honors from The Ohio State University in 2009, majoring in biology and minoring in animal science. While in undergrad, she was active in the pre-veterinary club, and Colleges
Against Cancer. To finance her education, she worked in both the large and small animal hospitals at Ohio State, and at a private small animal practice in Columbus, OH. Dr. Heikkila stayed at Ohio State for her veterinary training, and focused her clinical education on equine medicine. Her professional interests include opthalmology, internal medicine, sports medicine, and rehabilitation.

Dr. Heikkila is excited to join South Shore Equine as their intern veterinarian, and to continue her education. In her spare time, she enjoys riding her Haflinger- Zeli (who stayed back in Ohio), cooking, gardening, hiking
with her dog- Bella, and of course being an avid Buckeye football fan!"
