In this episode I caught up with fellow podcaster Yvonne Brandenburg RVT, VTS (SAIM) from Internal Medicine for Vet Techs
. Yvonne is the creator of an online community of like-minded nurses and techs with an interest in the medicine side of vet med.
Yvonne is a self-confessed type A person, always expanding her brain, always reaching towards the infinite possibilities. We spoke about the need to look after ourselves, remembering to be in the moment, and finding a renewed passion for our careers through continuing education and niching down.
Yvonne has her VTS in small animal internal medicine, as does her partner in crime Jordan from Internal Medicine for Vet Techs. Together they’re doing something really special to elevate our profession and to help others reignite a love of what they do. I’ll put a link in the show notes to their online RACE approved learning community and their podcast. They’re both amazing technicians and lovely people, so be sure to drop by and say hi to them on social media or through their website.
