Who Is My Veterinary Career ?
The faces behind My Veterinary Career
My Veterinary Career was founded by former veterinary hospital administrator, Stith Keiser.
His team’s goal has been to revolutionize the hiring process in veterinary medicine by introducing
a first-of-its-kind matchmaking service. Facilitating the right match between job seekers and
practices will increase employee productivity, tenure, and job satisfaction. Our clients—veterinary practices—
will experience reduced turnover, increased revenue, and staff cohesion, as well as a means to achieve their
business goals. For more information on the matchmaking process that makes this possible, click here.
Stith is the founder and business manager of My Veterinary Career. He created the firm to address veterinary medicine’s
high rate of turnover and the struggles practices go through to identify and retain exceptional team members. Stith’s industry
experience includes facilitating workshops at the American Animal Hospital Association’s annual conference, publishing articles,
and participating in videos on AAHA’s student website. He also presents at state and national veterinary conferences. In
addition to speaking, he writes for My Exceptional Veterinary Team and Vetstreet’s VetLearn website. Stith also conducts career
development-related workshops for veterinary business management associations, AAHA student groups, and student chapters of the
AVMA at veterinary schools across the country. Stith is a member of VetPartners and serves on AAHA’s New Graduate Task Force.
Stith’s day-to-day activities involve assisting veterinary professionals and practices in understanding the job market, identifying
goals, then screening and selecting job opportunities and candidates based upon those aspirations.
In his free time, Stith enjoys spending time in the outdoors of Wyoming backpacking, fishing, camping, and horseback riding.
