The Whole Veterinarian

Stacey Cordivano, DVM

Is it impossible for veterinarians to aim for more balance? The Whole Veterinarian podcast helps to share experiences and start a dialogue about how we can grow as people and professionals. As a female equine solo practitioner, mother and business owner, I've seen the challenges that face us. I want veterinarians to learn to be happier, healthier, wealthier and more grateful for the lives that they've created. Together, let’s learn how to develop a life we love.

Moving From Overwhelmed to In Control featuring Dr. Nia Perkins of My Vetamorphosis
Today you get to meet Dr. Nia Perkins, founder of My Vetamorphosis!...A graduate of Tuskegee University College of Veterinary Medicine, I dreamed of becoming a vet since I was a child growing up in Chicago. I hadn’t been practicing long before I realized that there were important aspects of the profession that were not taught in school. Not that they could have been. I’m talking about life experience. That’s what led me to Personal Development Coaching.I currently reside in the Atlanta area. I'm a boy mom to the best teenager on the planet and dog mom to the most stubborn but cutest Japanese Chin around! I love to bake goodies in my spare time, find good shows to binge, spend time with family and friends, and travel wherever life takes me!I believe every person should lead a fulfilling life, and achieve all they envision for themselves, both personally and professionally. I have coached others at different points in my career, but never looked at it as a job. With the current state of the veterinary profession, I feel I can make a profound impact as a coach.I chose to work exclusively with veterinarians, because for one, I'm a veterinarian, and I understand many of the challenges you face on a daily basis. Also, there's no one like you, and it's important that you and everyone else knows that! You have a lot to offer, but expectations placed on you make it difficult to see or feel that. Through personal development coaching, I help veterinarians become more balanced humans. ...Find out more about My Vetamorphosis and Dr. PerkinsWebsiteLinked InBook a FREE discovery call with her to see if coaching is right for you!If you decide to move forward with purchasing a coaching package, you will receive 20% off for being a Whole Veterinarian podcast listener!Coaching Package #1 TWV3 X 30-minute one-on-one coaching sessions and access to the monthly group sessionsCoaching Package #2 TWV3 X 30-minute one-on-one coaching sessions, access to the monthly group sessions, and unlimited messagingIf group sessions are more your style, check out the "Chat with the Tribe" option$25 for a monthly group session - no commitment and you can sign up for a single event HERE....Books that Nia recommends!1.
