Community Involvement

The veterinary profession has given me so much joy and satisfaction over the past 35+ years, I share my experience and knowledge so that in the future others can enjoy their “calling” as much as I have.

  • As a veterinary practice management consultant, you will frequently find my tips and suggestions on the list serve for the Veterinary Hospital Managers Association.
  • I frequently offer tips on my Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter accounts sharing the latest management and career advice with my followers.
  • I am a participant in multiple groups on Facebook and contribute business, career and well-being advice.
  • I am an advocate for team members who desire to grow and advance in their career. Over the years, I have advised and mentored many young managers who have reached out for help. They are encouraged to join the VHMA and study from my recommended reading list and emails are exchanged with career advice.
