This quarter we were very lucky to have two awesome speakers visit us. First up was Dr. Kristie Yee. Dr. Yee is our chapters Nationwide Insurance Field Veterinarian. She provided our members with the tools and information needed to be successful in your first job as a veterinarian. Dr. Yee explained to us how Nationwide Insurance will not only benefit our patients and clients, but how it can benefit us as veterinarians and business owners. This is the first year that our chapter has met with Dr. Yee and we definitely intend on making this meeting an annual event.
Next up was Dr. Alex Thomasson. This lecture educated attendees on what it means to be a veterinarian in the industry. Dr. Alex Thomasson has worked for Merial for the past 11 years as a technical service veterinarian. As an industry veterinarian there are many different avenues to be explored, such as research, development, testing, production, consulting, corporate pet stores, and much more. He also informed as that this profession comes with a very competitive salary, great benefits, and the opportunity to travel all over the country.
