On the record
Represented by:

I am a 2002 graduate of UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, and a member of the American Society of Veterinary Journalists. I have 16 years of experience in small animal general practice, and 10 years experience of writing and speaking. You may have seen me speak at veterinary conferences in the states or internationally, including Fetch, VMX, AAHA, AVMA, Canwest, or WVC to name a few. I also have enjoyed influencing vet students in the U.S. and abroad on all my favorite topics, including client communication, leadership development, and personal development. love entertaining and educating the veterinary audience in unconventional ways, including using the game I co-created with my partner in crime, The Social DVM - Vets Against Insanity, to teach lessons (and have fun!).
