On International Woman’s Day we would like to thank all the woman who have helped pave the way for women in science and medicine. Specifically the women who paved the way in veterinary medicine which remained a male dominated profession until the 1970’s.
We salute the women veterinarians, animal scientists, researchers, and veterinary and animal professionals who came before us, and fought tirelessly to pursue their dreams despite all the obstacles and challenges they faced.
We wouldn’t be where we are without you and your hard work, dedication, and perseverance.
At Brighton Greens Veterinary Hospital we are proud to be 100% woman owned and operated. In addition to working at the hospital we are also moms, wives, daughters, caregivers, girlfriends, and sisters, drivers of car-pool, cookers of dinner, giver of hugs and pretty much any other job that you can think of.
But we aren’t just co-workers. We are family. We stand by and support each other through thick and thin. The wins and losses, the triumph and failures. Both professional and personal. Through veterinary medicine we have all cultivated friendships that will last a lifetime.
With over 15 years of veterinary medicine experience under my belt, I can honestly say that this is the most cohesive, talented, educated, intuitive, honest and compassionate group of women I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Women who are making their dreams a reality. The kickers of ass and takers of names. Women who inspire you to be better, kinder, more compassionate, and to dream big. That’s the fabric of the Brighton Greens family.
So much gratitude fills my heart when I think of all the lovely women I work with- coworkers and clients alike.
We are all on the same team at Brighton Greens, and we have one thing in common: our love of veterinary medicine. (and cookies- some days cookies more than each other, but never for long)
So to all the women who came before us and made it possible for us to have a career doing what we love- we say thank you.
P.S. This was posted late because the day was simply too beautiful to spend inside on the computer.
