"Where ya'll from?"
As a practicing veterinarian Suzanne has a front row seat to the changes in the veterinary profession over the past 25 years. More clients are sleeping with their pets than ever before and consider them members of the family. Not only is there a shortage of small and large animal clinical veterinarians, there's a shortage of veterinarians in all sectors of the profession including medical research, food safety, wildlife surveillance, academia, public, and industry. Climate change and the COVID pandemic have only served to accentuate the need for more veterinarians and para-veterinary support staff to work across traditional species and life science boundaries to innovate holistic interventions.
Suzanne is passionate about using a holistic approach to improving efficiency in clinical veterinary practices, equipping and deploying para-veterinary support staff with sustainable careers, and more effectively protecting public health with impactful integrations with human and environmental health systems at a local level, state and national levels.
Suzanne is a native of Newport Beach, California. She did her undergraduate work at California State University, Fullerton and received a BA in Liberal Arts. She attended the University of Connecticut and earned her math and science requirements for veterinary school. She left Connecticut and moved to Blacksburg, Virginia to attend the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine and earned her DVM. Later she pursued her interests in business and entrepreneurship at the University of Arkansas and received her MBA.
For twenty-five years she has lived at Doxa, the family farm in rural Arkansas. She has two adult sons, Parker and Giffory Dew and currently lives with two dogs, Zip and Ace, three horse and lots of wildlife.
