I am pleased to announce that I have earned the credential of Certified Veterinary Journalist from the American Society of Veterinary  Journalists. As a former veterinary hospital manager, and as someone who works hard at bringing you cat health information you can trust, this certification means a lot to me.

The ASVJ certifies veterinarians, animal health professionals and veterinary contributors to public media ranging from  print to blogs to radio and television. The goal of the ASVJ, and the certification, is to establish the credibility and the recognition of journalistic standards in the veterinary profession among members of media. The certification assures readers or listeners that this person really understands veterinary medicine. The certification process involved a review of my professional credentials and previous media work, as well as a formal examination.
