My goals for this site

I want this to be a collection of high-quality, scientific-based resources for veterinary business owners, professionals working in our industry, and anyone else who might find the information useful!

I intend to focus on quality over quantity, and all articles will be based on research-proven techniques. As I have entered my business education, I have realized I was clueless about general business topics, and that is what I want to do here - help bring general business techniques to the veterinary world.

About me

I am a large animal veterinarian, with a main focus on equine, especially equine dentistry. (I also secretly developed a passion for goats during my time in practice - don't tell.) I founded Myrtle Beach Equine Clinic in 2010, and during that time I found that I truly enjoyed the business management side of our field, that it spoke to many of my strengths and interests. I chose to sell my practice in 2018 to pursue a full education in business. I am currently double majoring in Business Management and Marketing, while still providing relief work to my former business.


On the business side, I am interested in finding solutions for small-scale large animal practices that have difficulties in producing a reasonable profit, which is the situation I found myself in as a practice owner in a rural area. If you are in a similar situation, do not hesitate to reach out - I would love to talk to you and hear about your experience!
