Building a satisfying career as a pet professional can be simultaneously rewarding and overwhelming. Since graduating from veterinary school, Dr. Kate Boatright has worked in multiple areas of veterinary practice. Her work has taken her from cats and dogs to honey badgers. Along the way, she has learned the importance of building a network of fellow pet professionals, prioritizing personal wellbeing and finding a work environment that supports these endeavors. During this interactive Keynote, Dr. Boatright will discuss the pets and patients that have helped to shape her career into a joy-filled, rewarding career. Throughout the lecture, tips to maintain personal wellbeing, improve communication, and build lasting relationships with teams, fellow pet professionals, clients, and their pets will be discussed.
