Today’s guest, Sydney Wandix, speaks to one of my favorite topics: the varying opportunities that fit under the vet med umbrella. There are so many careers available in this field that you don’t have to be stuck; you can try new things and hopefully find just the right fit.

Sydney has run the gamut of jobs in the veterinary industry and is a licensed veterinary technician. She works for UrgentVet as an Expansion Manager, traveling to her company’s new clinics to support and develop the clinic team. Monday through Friday, Sydney reaches new cities and states to work with a team, seeing new people and new clinics every month. She provides managerial support and assistance with new roles.

During our conversation, Sydney shared some outstanding tips she feels younger Sydney could have benefited from, and hopefully newcomers to the field can now.

  1. Confidence is key
  2. Talk less and listen more
  3. Don’t be afraid to have the “hard” conversations
  4. Never assume
  5. Take time for yourself

And if you take anything away from this episode, remember to get out there and try these opportunities within the vet med industry. If your current role isn’t serving you, there ARE other options.
