Let me know your thoughts!

I’m Stacey

I want veterinarians to become happier, healthier, wealthier and more grateful for this life that we’ve created.

I understand the struggles of a stretched-too-thin veterinarian. I have also learned that with some individual work, there is a brighter side to veterinary medicine. Personal and financial development strategies have helped me find a happier place in my life and in my work. I hope to share resources that will resonate with my fellow veterinarian to allow you to become a more whole person.

In sharing her path from burned out surgical resident to thriving house call concierge vet, Dr. Eve Harrison highlights a fundamental truth – veterinary medicine can truly be whatever you make of it. We talk a lot about the logistics of screening clients as she describes the strict boundaries around her practice culture, but in doing so, we are given an opportunity to see the real life effects of being in the driver seat of your own life and career. There’s much to glean from this conversation, even if you aren’t a mobile veterinarian. And for my equine colleagues, listen up – we can definitely stand to take away a few pointers from this chat!
