#222 Kelly Cooper, DVM - Creating a Clinic That Reflects Your Values

In this episode, I'm joined by Dr. Kelly Cooper. Dr. Cooper is working to empower veterinary leaders to achieve success through purpose, planning, and process. She's been a practice owner, worked in various leadership roles in corporate medicine, and worked as an associate via relief work. Her industry overview is unique, and we unpack each of those areas.

  • Her update from VMX and VetPartners
  • Her veterinary story from early practice ownership to feeling burned out and the various transitions.
  • Why do so many veterinarians lack community and support?
  • We discuss if too many veterinary students are being selected to be great students vs. great veterinarians.
  • How private practice and corporate both have given her so much.
  • The three traits she looks for in team members - self-awareness, coachability, and alignment w/mission and vision.
  • Her journey to better understand the business of veterinary medicine and how she is passionate about that today.
  • Why she wants to encourage ownership within veterinary medicine.
  • And so MUCH MORE!
