Dr. Heidi Wampler, DVM is a Helena native who attended Capital High with her husband, Todd. After attending Carroll College in Helena, she spent most of her undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan, earning her bachelor's degree in Biology in 1998 from Colorado State University

Before founding Alpine Animal Clinic, she joined two affiliated vet clinics, Companion Animal Hospital and the Animal Center, in 2002 and practiced with them for 7 years until deciding to pursue her dream of opening Helena's first AAHA-accredited hospital, Alpine Animal Clinic, in 2008.  Dr. Wampler's hospital proved to be so successful, within three years she decided to expand, more than doubling Alpine's size to its current 11,000 square feet, and employing more than 30 staff members.  Expansion of the facility has created a unique capability to host community events and educational events for veterinarians as well as veterinary support staff.  She is proud to have hosted two Continuing Education conferences at Alpine for veterinarians who attended from across the state.
