Financial Wellness DVM
Type of blog: personal finance
Tagline: A personal finance blog for veterinarians
Blog start: April 2018
Story: I saw that there was such a wealth of information for physicians that wanted to learn more about personal finance. However, I couldn’t find anything equivalent for my profession (veterinary medicine). With the profession facing its own unique financial challenges, as well as its changing demographic to majority female, I felt compelled to start my own blog! As an aside, a lot of my posts are useful to pretty much anyone that wants to learn more about personal finance.
