Dr. Brianna Blanchard, facilitator
Ross University 2019
I’m a 2019 graduate from Ross University. As a native Oregonian who hates the rain, I try to escape to sunnier places as much as I can. I love cats, ice cream, Christmas and my husband, who is also a veterinarian.
Power of Ten helped me through a particularly hard season of my career and provided me with the support I needed to make a change. Getting to know my peers helped me know I was not alone in feeling like I was on the fast track to burn out. Getting to know more senior members of the community helped me feel hopeful for a sustainable career.
Power of 10 builds up the areas of professional development that are so often neglected-self awareness, mentorship, communication, wellness, inclusion and diversity. I’m looking forward to welcoming the new class and continuing to build relationships in the Portland veterinary community.
