The Wisconsin Veterinary Practice Managers Association announced the creation of a continuing education fund in honor of founding member and long-time convention chairperson Josette Svitter during their Annual Meeting on Oct. 9, 2010 at the Madison Marriot West in Middleton.
Josette Svitter has been employed by the Kettle Morraine Veterinary Clinic since the late 80s. After attending medical only continuing education events with the clinic team, she recognized a need for a practice managers group.
That was over 15 years ago and after sharing her vision and tireless recruiting the Wisconsin Veterinary Practice Managers Association was formed. What began as 10 members in the mid-90s has grown to over 120, and Svitter has fostered relationships with both the WVMA and the WVTA working together on convention, winter retreat and legislative matters throughout the year.
After her many years of service to the association, she has decided to step down from her position as convention chairperson. Svitter is considered an educator, caretaker and groundbreaker by her peers. The fund will encourage WVPMA member to engage in growth, both personally and professionally.
If you would like to donate to the Josette Svitter continuing education fund, please choose a donation method below.
