Dr. Ellen LeCompte Ferguson is a native of Dorchester County, and is excited to be practicing in the community that has supported her so much throughout her life.
She received her B.S. from the University of South Carolina with a major in Marine Science. She spent time working in environmental toxicology and as a laboratory director with Air Liquide. Ultimately, she decided to leave her corporate career in order to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian. She joined the team of Healing Hands Animal Hospital for the first time as a veterinary technician in 2007. She then attended Virginia- Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech where she focused on small animal and equine medicine; graduating with honors in 2013. Dr. Ferguson has a very strong interest in oncology, internal medicine and diagnostic ultrasound. She enjoys establishing and fostering bonds with her patients and clients alike. After graduation she spent two years in small animal practice at a hospital in Laurel, DE before rejoining the team of doctors at Healing Hands. She is excited to be part of a hospital that incorporates alternative therapies with modern medicine to provide exceptional care to the animals and people of the area.
Dr. Ferguson and her husband Bart currently reside in Trappe, MD with their Rottweiler; Bobby. The Ferguson Family is in the process of renovating her historic childhood home in lower Dorchester County where they plan to reside. She enjoys horseback riding, tennis, photography and spending time on the water.
