Dani McVety, DVM

Get Sh*t Done 2018

For some, there is a light that appears at the toughest moments of being a doctor. Dr. Dani McVety found that light early in her career, and it sparked an idea that has become one of the most unique and fastest growing businesses in the veterinary space. Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice, a service that has visited the homes of over 50,000 families, is now a nationwide network of over 100 passionate doctors and a full time interdisciplinary support staff dedicated to making the end of life experience for pets, and the people that love them, as dignified and peaceful as possible.

Dr. McVety is Co-Founder and CEO of Lap of Love and co-host of PetCareTV. She frequently writes and speaks for professional and lay audiences around the country and internationally, empowering both parties to seek the highest standards of care and communication. Her talks have quickly garnered the reputation of being “fantastically hilarious,” “bringing humor where it’s needed most,” “incredibly inspiring,” and “refreshingly authentic.”

In her talks, Dr. McVety shares her struggles through veterinary school, how she found her passion in the emergency room, why she felt a calling in the toughest moments of medicine, and how her and her business partner have grown an internationally recognized business.

Additionally, as a certified body language instructor, one of her favorite topics is communication. “Communication is the heart of all that we do; it is lifeblood of all our interactions.” Dr. McVety and Lap of Love have been featured on numerous local, national, and professional media outlets including the New York Times, Washington Post, Entrepreneur Magazine, Huffington Post, and many more. She proudly graduated from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine and is the youngest recipient of both the college’s Distinguished Young Alumni Award (2013) and the Florida Veterinary Medical Association's President's Award (2014). She was honored to also receive the Pet Industry Woman of the Year award for 2017!

Senani Ratnayake, BSc RVT

Senani Ratnayake, BSc RVT

Get Sh*t Done 2018

Senani Ratnayake is an RVT who believes that people don’t change because you tell them to, they change because they feel something. That said, her goal as a facilitator and founder of Motivatum Consulting is to ensure people feel something that ignites a change in their behaviours.

Senani discovered her niche after realizing that many of her colleagues had chosen veterinary medicine because they loved animals, and didn’t really like humans that much! She has been educating veterinary professionals on customer service, communication, and team building for over 14 years. Her experiences in practice, combined with time spent working in Industry, have given her a unique perspective. Having received multiple awards for her contributions to the profession, Senani is noted as a relatable and thought-provoking story-teller, capturing hearts and attention to inspire change!

As the Director of Learning and Engagement at P3 Veterinary Partners, her focus is on supporting and coaching team members, managers and Medical Directors on how to provide the ultimate Client/Patient Experience all while maximizing business potential and genuinely getting along. In her “spare” time Senani works as a facilitator for Learn2 Solutions; work that stimulates her knowledge from a non-vet perspective.

A Past-President of both the OAVT and TAVM, a member of the advisory council for Veterinarians Without Borders and the OAVT Legislative Task Force, and a facilitator for the OAVT Professionalism and Ethics course, she maintains a strong presence throughout the veterinary industry.

While veterinary medicine is an integral part of her identity – acting, Netflix, nail art and hosting e-gaming events are things she makes time for! Senani’s passion for animals is unbridled (her rabbits literally have their own bedrooms) and with her husband and pets by her side she is ready to empower the veterinary profession – one team member at a time!
