Chief Operating Officer, National Veterinary Associates

Members of the operations team are driven by a common belief: The profession we serve does great things; their work is vital to their local communities. With experts in recruiting, management, technology, human resources, training and development, our goal is to make the lives of our pet-care teams easier. We help handle the pain points of managing a hospital or pet resort, so they can focus on delivering services that advance pet care and grow their business. The animals that walk through their doors depend on their care. We deliver our best so that they can, too.

After studying electrical engineering at the University of Notre Dame, I later earned an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. As a co-founder and owner of a company for several years, I understand very deeply the many challenges that our partners have overcome to get their practice or business to where it is today; I have a profound respect for what they’ve accomplished. Before co-founding my last company, I held various roles with the Boston Consulting Group and GE Healthcare. I joined NVA in 2013.
