About

Tompkins (2)A little bit about me,

My goal at South Coast Veterinary Management Solutions is to not only provide excellent customer service, but to build relationships.

I have over 17 years of experience in the veterinary field and whether you need team training or marketing assistance I am here to help your business. I am a Certified Veterinary Practice Manager, I am credentialed in HR for California (PHRca), and I am also a Certified Compassion Fatigue Professional.

I am very active within the veterinary profession and was the Southern California Veterinary Medical Association’s 2018 Paraprofessional of the year.

In 2011 I co-founded the North Orange County Veterinary Hospital manager’s group.  I help organize our monthly meetings and help provide quality education to our local managers.  I love helping other managers and team members grow within the veterinary profession.

I have published multiple articles in DVM360.com, Veterinary Team Brief, and veterinary economics.  I have been a speaker at multiple conferences and symposiums, including ASEC’s Annual Symposium, California Veterinary Specialists Management/Technician Spring forum & Symposium, and Fur Paws Consulting Training Symposium.  I have also been a featured  speaker on how to create a Cat Friendly Practice with Ceva Animal Health and at the 2016 AVSG Wet Lab.  Recently I was a speaker at Oklahoma’s Veterinary Medical Conference in Oklahoma City!

Becoming a veterinary practice consultant allows me to do what I love best, which is helping other veterinary professionals grow their business.
