INSIDER'S PERSPECTIVE

Carolyn Becker

CVPM, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, CVT

Over 20 years in the Veterinary Profession

Carolyn has a deep understanding of veterinary hospital dynamics and extensive HR knowledge.  She gained her experience while working in the hospital trenches and directing HR processes for independently owned and multi-state veterinary organizations.

The veterinary profession has unique challenges.  Veterinary leaders want to do right by their people, and also want to protect their practice.  However, many don't realize they need HR support until culture is eroded, or they receive a major employee complaint or a lawsuit.

Carolyn's inside perspective and veterinary HR expertise is the foundation for

Starpath Consulting LLC

 
 

"Phone call after phone call, Carolyn was there to support… Her voice's calm tone was enough to create the space needed to work through a difficult situation. 


Because of Carolyn's willingness to share her purpose, vision, and drive through an emotional connection, I am a better leader, and I cannot thank her enough."

Shelby, Practice Manager

OUR CHANGING WORLD

As our world changes more rapidly and drastically than ever before,

our people continue to be the heartbeat of our practices.  During times of uncertainty, a clear HR strategy gives our people direction and consistency.


We may not yet know exactly how the veterinary profession will need to adapt to provide care for our patients, service for our clients, and meaningful work for our people.  Veterinary leaders need support too, especially during difficult times.

Together, we will navigate these changes in our profession and our practices.

Let us help you chart a course to the stars.
