Veterinarians, vet techs/nurses, and other veterinary care providers experience astoundingly high rates of burnout and compassion fatigue. Because we work in a care-driven industry, spending so much time looking after other people and their pets, it's easy to forget about self-care.
My name is Dr. Marie Holowaychuk and my mission is to improve the mental health and wellbeing of veterinary professionals. I'm a veterinarian and board-certified emergency and critical care specialist, as well as a certified yoga instructor, meditation teacher, and life coach.
I publish a monthly veterinary wellness newsletter with the intention of sharing information with veterinary care providers, who are interested in learning more about the wellness issues facing our profession today.
These newsletters also contain information about upcoming online programs and other wellness events for veterinary team members.
