We’re pleased to announce Cheryl DeSantis as NVA’s new Chief People Officer. Cheryl will oversee our community’s efforts to attract and retain the world’s best veterinary teams. Cheryl will also lead the organizational design strategy as National Veterinary Associates continues its work to form two distinct businesses: NVA General Practice (“NVA GP”) and Ethos Veterinary Health (“EVH”), enabling broad access to high-quality care and leading the advancement of cutting-edge medicine to extend and improve the lives of pets.

An accomplished human resources leader with more than 25 years of experience, Cheryl has led human resources in pet care and medical companies, including SmileDirectClub, where she served as Chief People & Diversity Officer, building the company’s human resources infrastructure ahead of its public listing. Previously, Cheryl also served as Vice President, People & Organization for Mars’ Petcare Division.

As we set upon a new chapter of growth at NVA GP and EVH, we’re thrilled to have Cheryl join our leadership team and our shared love of animals and the people who love them.
