We invite you to take a peek into part of what makes the Uncharted Veterinary Community so unique: our members! We sat down to interview some of the amazing people who have joined us on our amazing journey since the first conference in 2017. Our most recent interview was with Dr. Becky Krull from Wisconsin! Enjoy!
For anyone who doesn’t know you, could you tell us a little about yourself?
I am a small animal veterinarian, business owner, mom and wife. I live in Green Bay, WI and have two clinics. I am passionate about the well being of our profession and have recently starting public speaking and consulting on how to be balanced and amazing leaders.
What were you looking for when you joined Uncharted?
Looking for people who really want to make a difference in their daily lives and their businesses and being positive influences in their world, both professional and personal. Frankly…I was sick of the DVM facebook groups that were nothing but negative and whiners that refuse to improve their situation.
What are your 2 favorite groups in the Uncharted Workplace community and why?
Anchor Gang, Wellness…but really they are all so valuable for whatever you need when you need it. It’s a wealth of knowledge with people who are willing to share it.
Who is one of your favorite people you’ve met through Uncharted and why?
Beth Mehaffey – she is just a ball of energy! It is infectious!
What is your current work related goal?
Wellness for my business and team.
What is your favorite hobby and how did you discover it? Would you recommend it to others?
I really enjoy wellness and exploring that with friends and family. That may be hiking, yoga, road trips and car rides. It isn’t just one thing. It is whatever fills my cup that day.
What is one thing you never thought you could do (or were afraid to try) that you’ve done since joining Uncharted?
Hired a practice manager – thank you Kira Berger and Amy Deshotel.
What is your end-of-workday guilty pleasure?
Tell us a story of how another Uncharted Member has helped you.
My first UVC (2019), it was our last group roundtable. Kira Berger and Amy Deshotel were in my group (I had spent quite a bit of time with them that weekend). They really helped me see that I couldn’t do it all, that a practice manager could help me be a better doctor. And they were right! I hired one shortly after we got back from that conference. My production went up almost $250K because I get to be a doctor again!
Do you have a dream for your career? What is it?
Continue to have financial growth, personal growth, to ensure my team has wellbeing and fulfilling their dreams as well. I do hope to one day work less, but right now I am in love with vet med again and enjoy being with my patients.
Is there anything we haven’t asked you about that you would like to talk about?
Veterinary medicine is hard, it is. But we make it harder than it needs to be. We create a lot of our own misery. My passion is really helping veterinarians and their teams realize that we create our own happiness and our own path. What is right for one may not be right for others.
