    Mamas in Veterinary Medicine

    As a mom in the veterinary industry, you spend almost every waking minute of your day caring for others. Some may appreciate you more than words can say, and others may lack respect for your time and effort. You may be a doctor or a technician one minute and a therapist the next as you console a grieving client who just said goodbye to their beloved fur baby of 14 years. Whether you are a veterinarian, a veterinarian technician, a practice manager, or office staff you learn to wear many hats in this field.

    Ironically, your place of work isn’t the only place you wear many hats. As a mama in the veterinary field, you care for your clients all day (and sometimes night), and then go home to do the same for your family. You’re emotionally exhausted, on the verge of burnout, and dealing with feelings of guilt and worry as you try to tackle being everything to everyone.

    You haven’t had one date night since your little one was born and you can’t remember the last time you did something for yourself. The late night emergency calls and the weekend shifts leave you feeling guilty and questioning if you are being a “good” mama and partner. There is a constant battle going on within you trying to answer the million dollar question that many working mom’s ask, “How do I excel in my profession, while staying true to the parent and partner I want to be?”

    Being a mama in the veterinary field comes with this unwritten rule to be all the things to all the people, except yourself.

    Often times you find yourself whispering, “get it together” and silently suffering alone. Overtime, the constant juggle of trying to balance family and work life can often lead to mental health symptoms such as:

    • Anxiety
    • Depression
    • Burn out
    • Compassion fatigue
    • Isolation
    • Feelings of guilt and worry
    • Difficulty sleeping

    Every mom deserves to have someone in their corner offering them support and validation for what they are feeling.

    If you are looking for:

    – A safe place to have open and honest conversations about your daily work/life struggles specific to the veterinary field and motherhood
    – Validation, support, connection, and empowerment

    – Skills to help with professional burnout, compassion fatigue, self-care, and work/life balance

    – Freedom to live your personal and professional life authentically

    …Then let’s chat!

    You are worth the time!

    I know what you are thinking, “Great, another thing to add to my plate!” Finding the time to take care of yourself doesn’t feel right, and it probably has never been a priority of yours, but I want you to know, you are worth the time! Can you imagine the person you would be if you dedicated the same amount of time you give to others on yourself?

    Speaking of time, while I know you don’t have a lot of it to spare, and I unfortunately can’t wave a magical wand and create more of it (I wish!), but I can offer you the convenience of meeting online from anywhere in Florida. Whether you are sitting privately in an exam room, in your vehicle (not driving) on a lunch break, or just finishing up a farm call in the middle of nowhere (Florida) I am available to you!
