Soli started at the VMTH in 2002 as volunteer and slowly worked her way up through the ranks in almost every aspect of the Large Animal Clinic. Working in the Anatomic Pathology Service prompted her to start creating personal gifts—like hoof prints and manes—for clients who lost animals, and later inspired her to become a certified Pet Loss Grief Specialist. This background has helped countless clients through the euthanasia process.
While she is currently in an administrative role, she still gets to perform hands-on animal care when the hospital is busy, which allows her to “keep a finger on the pulse” in the barns.
Her supervisory role enables her to be in a position to inspire her colleagues to achieve the teamwork needed to run a successful hospital. She feels that the cultural advancement initiative can help move the VMTH forward to a place where teamwork is at the forefront of everything we do – where a team with common goals achieves superior patient outcomes. Soli’s leadership is a shining example of the “One Team” key cultural pillar, as she hopes it will inspire others to help create a united, passionate team.
