Active involvement in veterinary associations is very important to me because it provides an opportunity for our profession to develop and grow by fostering advancement through communication and collaboration. The CVMA enables our voices to be heard in order to impact change at our state capitol, within regulatory agencies, and beyond, all while supporting our members with vital information and services. I am honored to serve as the 2022-2023 CVMA President
