Let’s hear from the audience…

“I attended Dr. Lacroix’s lectures at VECCS 2018 in New Orleans. She was a very engaging speaker with a wealth of knowledge. Having both a veterinary and legal background certainly gives her a clear perspective on how laws and regulations translate into a clinic environment. I felt the information given at the lectures was applicable and valuable, and I left with great information and ideas to take back to my clinic!”

-2018 IVECCS Attendee

“Dr Lacroix presented an excellent lecture at the IVECCS Meeting in NOLA regarding corporate buyouts in veterinary medicine. She is an extremely knowledgeable and vibrant speaker and very easy to listen to. The information was excellent and extremely worthwhile especially at this time. Kudos and well done Dr Lacroix.”

-2019 IVECCS Attendee

“Sitting in Dr. Lacroix’s presentations were nothing less than eye opening! What I thought would be a boring talk on the law, liabilities, and veterinary medicine turned out to be an enlightening venture navigating through situations I thought I  covered after 30+ years in practice.  While for a short moment  I felt defeated and slightly depressed , it was only for a short moment. Her motivation, explanations, and recommendations for corrective measures got me in gear to rethink current policies and procedures at my hospital, update my employee manual and other documents, and re-educate my staff regarding many of the issues she discussed. Each staff meeting will address many of these issues and become a permanent part of our agenda.  I have a thriving and successful practice and want to keep my risks at a minimum. She was refreshing and enlightening.  Thanks for the boost!”

-Dr. Davis, DVM

“I had the pleasure of attending Dr. Lacroix’s lecture session titled “A Manager’s Role in Veterinary Ethics” last week. I am new to the veterinary field. My past 10 years experience has been in human medical management. Dr. Lacroix’s session was interactive, encouraged audience participation, and really made me think about the dilemmas that come up in veterinary medicine; dilemmas that would not come about in human medicine. I met some amazing managers and had very productive interactions in this session. If you ever have the opportunity, attending one of Dr. Lacroix’s sessions will be time well-spent.”

-Holi Lederer, PM, Santa Clarita, CA

“Dr. Lacroix’s Ethics lecture was the most vibrant and interesting session I attended at the VHMA this year. She is such a great speaker and engages with the audience, keeping your attention the whole time. What I loved most about the content was that she gave puzzling scenarios for us to work through with multiple issues that would twist the case even further. It really brought to light what could possibly happen at our practices and where our current holes in protocol are that need plugging.”

-Marian Rowland BS CVPM

“Dr. Lacroix’s lecture at the VHMA Annual Conference was excellent. She is interesting, engaging and an expert in her field. Her high degree of knowledge regarding HR, Law and Ethics is evident but she presents in a way that is relevant and accessible to all levels of management. I enjoyed how much Dr. Lacroix encouraged participation and audience feedback and tailored her presentation to audience questions. Within days of the conference ending, I received the promised supporting information from the lecture and am able to review and begin to implement while the information is still fresh in my head! I would love to see Dr. Lacroix speak again!”

-Joanne Graham, CVPM
