Shannon Cabelli (2011) - I really enjoyed my externship at Veterianry Business Advisors, Inc. I felt the staff took good measures to ensure I received the most from this externship by not only educating me on the business aspect of veterianry practices, but by also personalizing this experience to meet my expectations. I spent time with Dr. Lacroix and her clients on numerous conference calls. Every call was different and permitted me to hear about a variety of legal and business scenarios veterinarians around the coutnry came across on a daily basis. Plus, I learned the importance of investing in a well-constructed employee manual and the benefits in can bring to a veterinary practice. The unique feature of this externship is students give back to the veterinary community. I enjoyed researching a topic of importance to our profession, writing proceedings, and presenting my finding to the staff. Dr. Lacroix believes in these topics and works to have her externs' papers featured in her VBA newsletter and other suitable written and online publications, which helps educate other veterianrians and is a great resume builder. This was an invaluable exerperience and I was happy to spread the word about this externship to my classmates. I will continue to speak highly of VBA's externship program, staff, and business to my collegues in the future. Additionally, I feel more prepared to deal with handling veterinary contracts as I navigate my way through hunting for jobs. Dr. Lacroix is great at her job and I easily see myself seeking her legal advice on my first associate veterinarian contract as well as in the future when I decide to own my first veterinary hospital.
