In-Clinic Training

What can I offer you, your clinic and your veterinary TEAM? I offer numerous TEAM-centric opportunities designed to teach, inspire and motivate! Each of my sessions emphasizes how veterinary technician’s can increase their value in the practice, inspires critical thinking, and encourages veterinary technicians to continue to learn.

During COVID, I think we all learned that a well functioning team is vital. Let’s have veterinary technicians do “veterinary technician work”, and allow the DVMs to do “doctor work”. By utilizing veterinary technicians to their fullest extent we create efficiencies, job satisfaction and also reduce the stress on any one team member.

Many clinic teams struggle with where to start… knowing they need a change for every team member’s well being, but not knowing how to implement change for the better.

As an Emergency and Intensive Care Unit Technician with many years of experience, a Veterinary Technician Specialist in Emergency and Critical Care, and an award winning speaker, I have figured out what makes veterinary technicians get excited.  LEARNING! A veterinary technician who is not given the opportunity to learn and create, stagnates.  A veterinary technician who has lost their enthusiasm is not a valuable team member, spreading their discontent within the whole practice.  Oftentimes, finding a niche or challenge for this veterinary technician is the push needed to make them remember why they went into veterinary technology in the first place. Continuing education is critical… but also very expensive.  On average to send ONE technician to a conference costs anywhere from $500-2000 or more, not including any paid time off benefits and covering their shifts. 

While the conference experience is very valuable; it allows veterinary technicians to connect with their peers, provides state-of-the art information, and is a great source of free pens for the clinic, it is unlikely that your practice can send the entire team. When only one team member is able to attend the conference, implementing new ideas or protocols gathered at the conference becomes a challenge. The veterinary technician that attended the conference has to now “sell” the ideas to the whole team, and this can be very difficult. Eventually, the enthusiasm of this technician wanes, and all benefit of sending the technician to the conference is lost as everyone reverts back to their comfort levels.

This is where TEAM training comes in. By including as many veterinary technicians, veterinarians, receptionists and other team members into training, the WHOLE TEAM experiences the continuing education at the same time! This inspires discussion, collaboration and motivation!

Any of my speaking topics can be presented at your clinic, or I can tailor something specific to your needs. RECOVER CPR is also an in person training.
