Speaking Engagements

TED X Coeur D'Alene

In January of 2020 I was accepted and presented a TED talk focused on veterinary mental health, the challenges of our day to day and some solutions to helping improve the sustainability of our profession. The talk has been viewed by tens of thousands of people world wide including veterinarians, students, technicians, practice managers, human health care professionals, lawyers and mental health professionals. The talk has been shown in veterinary schools across the country, as well as, used by small practices to start conversations on mental well being and client education. I encourage you to take time to watch it. 

Other Speaking Topics & Work

I have also done public speaking at veterinary schools for classes and the Veterinary Business Management Association. Topics have included:

1. Developing your veterinary treatment philosophy

2. What clients are really hearing and saying: Explaining the value of your services. 

3. Building your Veterinary Career- How to be a kick-ass associate and reach your personal and professional goals. 

4. Personal budgeting and Tackling Student Loan Debt

I have also been published in the WSVMA Monthly Magazine, interviewed on podcasts and for VIN News. 

For public speaking I do require an honorarium, as well as, reimbursement for travel and hotel costs. Specific pricing depends on length of engagement and event. Please contact me for estimates. 

Let's Collaborate!

Do you have a new project, want to do an interivew or have a specific topic you are looking for someone to address at an event? Send me a message. I love to collaborate with others and be a part of innovation in industry.
