AVMA data shows that 41% of veterinary practice owners are female even though they comprise over 60% of the veterinary profession. This is an increase from 29% female practice ownership in 2007. In this episode, Dr. Fred Gingrich, AABP Executive Director, has a conversation with three female practice owners – Dr. Tera Barnhardt, Dr. Cassandra Gewiss and Dr. Lesley Moser. Each guest discusses the advantages, disadvantages, challenges and opportunities of practice owners and the paths they took to ownership. We also discuss managing work-life integration and how they manage work time versus family or free time. They also discuss how each of them have experience gender bias and how they addressed it when it occurred. Dr. Gewiss and Dr. Moser each participated in the AABP practice management workshops funded by grants from the USDA NIFA program and learned practice management to assist them as they transitioned to practice ownership. We also discuss the resources that AABP has available to assist practice owners at all stages of their career.
