About Travis & Associates
For the past 17 years, I’ve placed veterinarians and hospital managers with the top 20% of veterinary practices. As both an independent veterinarian recruiter and career/life coach, I bring additional expertise to you to support your job search. Recently, one of my veterinarian candidates said, "as an independent recruiter, you are like an impartial third party. I feel I can get the real story about the practices from you!"
For you the practice owner, I am able to increase employee retention due to a unique program based on both my expertise in coaching and recruiting. It's called the Veterinary Retention Program. It helps you, the owner, maintain your high level of clinical excellence and customer service, gives you that competitive advantage in the market place and most importantly, keep staff. I find exceptional veterinarian candidates who are self-motivated, flexible, competent and passionate about veterinary medicine.
