I created JOYFUL DVM in 2017 to encourage, empower and educate veterinary professionals in areas of work-life balance, anxiety management, and personal development. My Core Purpose is to empower veterinary professionals.
Because, as a fellow veterinarian, I’ve been where you are and I know your current situation is the result of all the things you didn’t learn, and didn’t consider along the way. (BTW: not your fault.) My heart breaks every time we lose a colleague to suicide, and every time I hear of a colleague’s despair over our profession. Decreasing our suicide rate isn't enough... I want us OFF that terrible top 10 list. I don’t want to see you struggle like I did.
I’m building new resources all the time!

VETERINARY LIFE COACHING
Sometimes all you need is a fresh perspective!
Life coaching fills in the gaps that medical knowledge and skills training alone left behind. You're a really good VetMed professional! You just haven't been provided with the life-skills education you need to understand what is actually going on in your own mind... so, of course, you're struggling!
Best News Ever: You already have everything you need to create a career and life you love, you just don't know how to tap into it... YET!
That's where I come in! I'll help you sort out your thoughts and beliefs, help you find the thought-errors that are holding you back, and teach you how to harness the power of your own mind to create anything you want!
Sounds pretty bold, I know! It is!
Veterinary Life Coaching is available in multiple formats:
> Individual, personalized coaching (Contact Joyful DVM for details)
> Group ongoing education & coaching (Vet Life Academy)
> Focused Group education & coaching (Anxiety Management Workshop)
To provide community, courses, coaching and consulting designed to equip veterinary professionals with the support and skills they need to victoriously navigate the challenges associated with the lifestyle and the practice of veterinary medicine.
To change the belief that relentless stress, anxiety, depression, and high rate of suicide are inevitable consequences of VetMed careers, from one of passive acceptance to one of empowered right to create a different reality through choices and actions.
VET LIFE ACADEMY
A one-of-a-kind educational, self-development membership experience providing Content, Coaching & Community.
We explore the relationship between events, thoughts, emotions, actions and results in a very systematic way, including the neuroscience behind why we think and do the things we do.
Learning to understand what’s going on in your brain is the key to creating everything you want for your life… including all the things tied up with your Vet Med career.
Simply put: you will learn how to take back control of your life, and create a forward-focused future based on what’s important to you.
Each month we apply the foundational concepts to a specific topic, including how it impacts our lives as Vet Med professionals. The ongoing learning and application of the concepts is what creates massive change over time.
