Advice for new grads: Make the time to take care of yourself. This is a fast-paced, ever changing, and often overwhelming career that demands a great deal of mental clarity and ability to handle stress. In order to perform at that level, we have to prioritize our sleep, stress management, and mental well-being. Also, stay humble and be willing to unlearn when necessary to make room for new knowledge.

“Mentorship is the partnership among colleagues that provides a safe and effective environment for learning and growth. I have been fortunate to have had many wonderful mentors throughout my veterinary career that has led to better case management, obtaining new skills, and gaining new perspectives. When in the role of a mentor, I choose to lead from a place of kindness and mutual respect. I have a tremendous desire to help others succeed and I feel it starts with setting an example of how best to support your fellow colleague.”
