"Group career coaching helped me shift to using a different part of my brain and start to think about the hard stuff and the nitty gritty rather than just superficially looking for another career.
It really dug deeper to try to figure out what makes us tick to help figure out what we will be happy doing. It helped open my eyes a bit more and dust off the cobwebs of who I really am at my core and outside of vet med."

"I wanted to say thank you for the career coaching this year. It was an awesome experience.

I found it challenging and totally surprising, as it has kickstarted a personal journey back to my roots by helping me focus on myself and not my career. Kind of the opposite of what I expected to be honest!"

Watch back this session with NA Coaches Mel and Leann: ‘Something’s got to change!’

I want to leave practice; I don’t know how!

I want things to be different, but I have no idea where to start.

I just feel stuck!

If any of these feel familiar, like something has to change in your career, this is the session you’ll want to watch. We talk about how change happens (not by willpower or desire alone!), and we walk you through how to take your next career step or re-design your life to get to a sustainable, satisfied space in your career and life. You’ll leave with tools to self-reflect, and determine your next steps.
