Dr. Nancy Hesters, or “Dr. Nancy” as known by her clients, has been practicing veterinary medicine for 19 years, all in clinical settings. From Ohio, she went to Bowling Green State University earning a B.S. in Business. She then completed an MBA program from the Fort Bragg branch of Golden Gate University while serving as an airborne qualified officer supporting the 82nd Airborne Division. Following the Army she realized her true calling was to pursue a veterinary career. She and her husband moved to Raleigh for her veterinary school years at N.C. State University.
After gaining 10 years of experience, she and Allan decided to build Phoenix Animal Hospital, just outside of Elon and Burlington. The practice flourished due to the wonderful staff and support from the “small town” community. In 2015 they sold the practice to have more time for family and personal interests. She now works in a “relief” capacity and provides extra help and time off for colleagues.
Dr. Nancy understands that for most people their pet is a member of the family. She believes in good preventive care, but most of all, quality communication with families when a pet is ill. Clients should understand all their options when making decisions about an older or ill pet.
She has extensive animal shelter experience, and has participated in two veterinary mission trips to Honduras. Her hobbies include golf, walking her dog “Huey,” reading, sitting by the fire pit, and traveling with Allan.
Dr. Katherine Wallace received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Health Science from Guilford College in 2011, and a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Ohio State University in 2017. She is very excited to join Kings Crossing Animal Hospital as she previously worked for years with Dr. Fuller before entering veterinary school to pursue her lifelong dream. Dr. Wallace is committed to providing outstanding care to her patients and their families, and is particularly interested in pain management and end-of-life care. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, playing doubles tennis and spending time with her husband BJ, their dog Indie and their cat Hobbes.

After graduation Dr. Fuller worked full time at Guilford Jamestown Veterinary Hospital in Greensboro and as a relief emergency veterinarian at Carolina Veterinary Specialist and Emergency Services of Forsyth County. She is a member American Veterinary Medical Association and serves of the board of the Merchants of Oak Ridge. Dr. Fuller has had a wide variety of life experience and finds that her art and medicine backgrounds blend together seamlessly. Dr. Fuller, husband Brian and their son enjoy sharing their home with 3 dogs (Buddy, Duncan and Goosie) . A perfect little kitty named Eileen, a fish and they also have chickens that they adore! When she is not practicing medicine, she is busy pursuing her 3rd degree black belt in TaeKwonDo and working toward her black black in Hapkido.
