Think Stress Management, Work-Life Balance Creation, Personal Development, and Well-Being Expansion... on steroids.

Veterinary professionals are Smart Humans...

But, despite our extensive academic achievement, many of us experience poor quality of life, career regret, and a deep belief that what is possible for us in the future has been compromised by our decision to pursue a veterinary career.
Many of us suffer from relentless anxiety and stress, imposter syndrome, compassion fatigue, Sunday blues... this becomes our way of life. We become bitter, jaded and resentful.  We cope using things like food, alcohol, shopping, television, social media, and personal isolation.

We conclude pursuing a career in vet med was the worst. decision. ever.

Here's the good news: you have the power to fix this for yourself.

You are actually the only one who can.

Nobody likes talking about money... 
But, navigating these conversations is a skill you can learn so these conversations can take part with less dread, and more ease.
In the Treatment Plan Presentation Strategy resource, I show you how to set the stage for this conversation from the moment you walk through the exam room door.
Not only will this strategy help you to practice great medicine and communicate effectively, it will also help you release the responsibility you might feel over a client's decision. 
Setting and maintaining boundaries is a critical for your wellbeing...
But, most of us do it totally wrong.
In this Boundaries Scripts resource, I provide word-by-word scripts that you can use to set boundaries the right way in the most commonly encountered situations. 
You'll also learn to use my Setting Boundaries Blueprint to create effective boundaries in any situation.
Do you want to ask for a raise or negotiate a schedule change but you're not sure how to ask?
Have you identified a problem within the workplace, but you're not sure how to discuss it with leadership?

More Vet Life Academy Success Stories...
As a veterinarian in small animal practice for 32 years, I have only gradually, and often painfully, learned the life-enhancing material that is very efficiently and skillfully presented in the Joyful DVM program. I am delighted that these psychological insights, self-help tools, and empowering mind-management skills are being offered  in such an accessible and relatable form-- specifically addressing the frustrations we all share, and geared towards the common  personality types and motivations that lead us into this challenging field. I am certain that anyone in the veterinary profession, regardless of age or experience level, is going to find something very valuable in this material that will improve their experience both in the workplace and in their entire lives.

-I can control my thoughts
-I can control my reactions
Xoxo VLA!
VLA has provided me with real insight into how my mind works, and where my emotions come from, and even what my emotions are! Just having this awareness of my thoughts, emotions, and how I act on them has been incredibly helpful for me in dealing with difficult everyday situations. But there has also been a lot of power in realizing that I can choose to change things and be in charge of my thoughts and emotions, so that I'm not just at the mercy of what is happening around me. Sometimes I work on VLA material several hours a week and sometimes it's just a few minutes but it's all made a huge difference in reducing my anxiety levels around stressful situations, and helping me process things. And it's also just fascinating to learn how my mind works!
Isabella, DVM
I wanted to let you know that your advice and teachings have improved 200% my life at work and at home. I asked you a question about my tech that wasn't being efficient and was very frustrating to me. You said that I needed to coach her instead of being mad at her. In a nutshell it wasn't the answer I wanted to hear but it was the answer I needed. I took a deep breath and asked her what to do and when she didn't do it I sat with her and showed her how to do it. Turns out that she didn't know how to do it in the first place. She didn't remember that she was shown that a million times by my other staff. Sigh. I told her I was going to show her very patiently and she responded well to that. More than the anger and corrections. Figure that. Pretty common sense but I was getting stuck in my angry feelings instead of coaching her. I'm working daily to control the way I feel and how I act when presented a circumstance. It has helped me deal with my staff, my difficult practice manager, and even my husband.
Just wanted to let you know that I appreciate you and what you're offering. I know it's a lot of work and a lot of time you invest weekly into Vet Life Academy.

VLA has been a tremendous help to me learning to love Vet Med again!  After over 2 decades in the profession, I put notice in at my toxic job and was strongly considering leaving Vet Med completely even though I couldn't imagine doing anything else.  I had left bad jobs before, but I never had considered leaving the profession until this point. Things were BAD!  Clients sense of entitlement, social media, imposter syndrome, and a bad work environment had me in a downward spiral.  I decided to take a month or so off to regroup before starting a new job.  During this time I wanted to find a therapist to specifically help me with my work issues, but past experiences had always left me frustrated because they never could truly relate to the type of situations we experience daily in our profession.  I ended up seeing an ad for Joyful DVM masterclass.  I had nothing to lose, so I listened.  I could not believe how much it spoke to me.  Finally!  Someone who could relate to EXACTLY what I was going through and had advice that was actually relevant to my situation.  I decided to join VLA, and it has been absolutely worth it.  I figured that the investment in the course was the money I would have otherwise spent on a therapist, and there is no way they could have given me the same insight as this course specifically for vet med.  With the live sessions, it's a lot more than just something that you can listen to.  There is also content to help you with other areas of your life.  The information has been invaluable and has completely changed the way I think about a lot of (previously) stressful situations at my new job.  It has allowed me to get back to practicing medicine with less stress and a better outlook than I have had in a long time. Thanks VLA!
Jen,  DVM
I have found, more generally, that the advice you give about me not being responsible for every outcome is the most game changing thing anyone has ever said to me.  To realize that I don't control what the client does with the information I give them, that my job is to give the best advice, but then the client decides, has helped me enormously.  I've been practicing for 15 years and I've hated being a vet all that time, I move jobs every year or so and could absolutely relate to what you were saying about this.  You have given me some hope that things need not stay awful, so thank you so much.
Dr. A 
I also want to let you know that joining VLA has been the best thing I have done all year- so transformative and helpful for now and years to come.
