Meet Our Expert Veterinary Speakers
Dr. Tim Loonam
Dr. Loonam earned the Bronze Star Medal during a 13-month tour of duty in Iraq where he cared for military working dog teams and performed nation-rebuilding and public health missions. After serving as an Army Veterinarian, Dr. Loonam designed and built Grace Animal Hospital in Lexington, SC, which went on to become a 5-DVM, award-winning, AAHA accredited mixed-animal practice. Dr. Loonam is well-know for his personal, entertaining speaking, mentoring and teaching style.
Michelle Winter, CVT, CVPM, CVJ offers professional experience including years of multiple site practice management, consulting and speaking nationwide. But most notably she is known for creating and managing the Patterson Veterinary University educational programs where she influenced the professional development of tens of thousands of veterinary professionals and paraprofessionals hungry for education.
Dr. Loonam was hands down one of the most memorable speakers I've heard from. His style is personable, honest, and lectures to the group as if he was having a one-on-one conversation with you. I've never been so quick to email after Dr. Loonam's first lunch talk to plan another session.
I value the effort spent in using evidence-based knowledge to reason through misconceptions in the veterinary field. Thank you for your time and lessons that will help us in our careers.
