That experience combined with her extensive and holistic training and personal journey recovering from burnout has given her a unique perspective and fuels her passion to create positive change. Her mission is to beat burnout in the veterinary profession by empowering individuals and hospitals to embrace a new norm where we put our “oxygen mask” on first and where workplaces foster an environment where it's convenient to thrive. She outlines how we can make that a reality starting today in her free series for the veterinary community called “Beat The Burnout: What We Should Have Learned In Veterinary School”.In 2020, Amelia founded Life Boost with Amelia where she offers 1-on-1 and group coaching, self-paced programs, and workplace wellbeing consulting to help animal lovers unleash their most confident, energized, and healthy self.
