Jane has 40 years of working in many aspects of the veterinary industry - nursing, pharmaceutical sales, management, professional associations, advising nationally endorsed training, practice ownership, speaking and consulting on micro-management of veterinary practices.
As the industry blossoms, veterinary personnel need training to meet new challenges and higher customer-driven standard. There is a need to build positive-culture workplaces. Jane believes that an understanding and celebration of the Human-Animal Bond is intrinsic to any successful companion animal veterinary business.
