Who knew veterinary medicine could be this good!
For the past nine years, I’ve worked in the veterinary field and it can be grueling. But six weeks ago, I was hired as Practice Manager of Casco Bay Veterinary Hospital, a Rarebreed Veterinary Partners hospital. I have never felt more supported or valued as an employee in all my years in this profession. Rarebreed’s vision is to give people a positive work experience. But frankly, this only scratches the surface. Rarebreed is genuinely committed to the wellbeing of its veterinary teams. Rarebreed provides its employees with a superb work/life balance and benefits that far exceed those often offered to veterinary employees. Here is what is also refreshing: The leaders at Rarebreed encourage me to achieve my personal and career goals because they want me to thrive. Rarebreed’s mission is that if you have a team that is happy, healthy, and feels valued and supported, we can offer a phenomenal client/patient experience and provide a better return on the business. But this butterfly effect isn’t confined to the walls of our hospital. Entire communities of people and their pets are positively impacted by our compassionate care. The optimism in Rarebreed’s philosophy is captivating and real. Okay, I admit it. I now affectionately refer to myself as a “Breeder” and I couldn’t be more grateful to have found my happy place in this company.
