We are excited to announce that Katie Ford will be writing some content for us.
Katie is an experienced Veterinary Surgeon, working in small animal practice since graduating from the University of Liverpool in 2012. She gained her CertAVP(SAM) in 2016, passing the internal medicine synoptic exam, also at Liverpool. A confident communicator, she appeared on local radio, clinically coached nursing students, presented at BSAVA and spoke at vet schools.
Externally, Katie was a huge success. Internally, her life was not sunshine and rainbows. She had a dark few years, despite all the achievements on paper; she was one of the youngest ever to pass the CertAVP synoptic exam and loved by clients, but the voice inside her head was telling her that she was a fraud. She was at the mercy of her perfectionist brain, nothing ever being good enough and drove herself to despair.
With the power of mindset, consciousness and an understanding of the internal workings of her brain, Katie turned her life around. She has trained in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Broadband Consciousness and also completed programmes under the father of personal development himself, Bob Proctor of the Proctor-Gallagher Institute. She is a mentor to new and recent graduates.
Katie is now passionate about positivity in practice, awesome workplace culture and career fulfilment. She currently practices as a locum veterinary surgeon across the North West, finding joy in meeting and influencing new teams.
