Are you struggling with these?  Do you have a hard time remembering why you became a veterinarian?  It’s okay.  You are not alone.  However, there are ways to rekindle the enthusiasm and love for your profession.  One way to help is through storytelling, to allow healing and provide validation that what you do is meaningful.  

Dr. Nya Gilmartin and Dr. Kim Freeman are starting a group of veterinary storytellers.  So rarely do we take the time to open up to our colleagues and share stories, but so often we go through quite similar experiences in practice. Gaining feedback and being heard by your peers can help mend the soul.  We are going to start our storytelling sessions with a workshop called “Seeing through the Heart”.  This workshop is all about the process of self discovery and its goal is to help you shift your perspective and look at things in a new light.   We believe by doing this we can find greater meaning and satisfaction in our work by adjusting our perspective and seeing through the heart as well as through our intellect.  Following this workshop, we hope to inspire you to look at your days differently and find the stories that shape your lives, remember them and be willing to share them with others.  

We invite you to join us and learn how to make it happen. The long term plan is to have a regular gathering that provides an open forum for you to share your stories.  Tell us: What inspires you?  Do you know what touches your heart each day?  What surprises you each day at work? If you cannot answer these questions, this meeting is for you.


Place: Cancer & Surgery Specialists, 10400 SE Main St., Milwaukie, OR 97222.
