Many would think two dogs are a lot of work, for Ron it is twice the fun. But, then again, Ron always keeps busy and work is no different. His experience comes from broad experience in both corporate and advertising agency environments. Loving a challenge, he oversees VCP company operations and thrives on being involved in all aspects of the company, to ensure strategic objectives and a consistent customer experience. He served as COO, of a technology start-up focused on marketing automation software, and successfully ran his own business and brand strategy company for five years. It was during this time he began working with VCP, as one of his clients. He felt so strongly about the company that when asked to join the team he did.
In addition, Ron brings knowledge and experience in creating and supporting strategic partners and relationships along with eight years as the senior vice president of business and brand strategy for a national “Top 25” b2b brand agency. His operational experience also covers sales, customer support, marketing and he is active in product development and quality assurance.
As a pet lover, Ron understands the expense associated with pet wellness and care. One of his Schnauzers, Sebastian, is diabetic requiring two insulin shots daily. The idea of being able to budget, plan for preventive care as well as treatment really hits home and fuels his passion for what VCP delivers. His pet experience was a creative driver to the creation of our positioning line, that to ensure happier and healthy pets, we need to enable veterinary practices grow and prosper and thus – Healthier Pets. A Healthy Bottom Line.
Jessica has worked in the veterinary practice management field for almost 20 years, running practices in Minnesota, North Carolina and Texas. From 2009 to 2015 she worked as a consultant, first for Brakke Consulting and then later with her own company, Pinnacle Integrated Veterinary Solutions. During that time she was involved in multiple projects that led to becoming known as a wellness plan “guru,” speaking and writing extensively on the topic. As a result of this work, she was hired by VCP as a consultant to assist with customizing their products and introducing them to the veterinary marketplace. After 4 years of working together, she joined the VCP team full-time as the Director of Veterinary Solutions in January, 2016.
Jessica graduated from Carleton College with a BA in studio art. Although she had never planned on working in the veterinary industry, thanks to adopting a Great Pyrenees puppy (her first dog ever!) an opportunity fell into her lap and the rest is history! She currently lives in Flower Mound, TX with her three adopted dogs Mei Mei, Luigi and Abee. In her free time she enjoys kickboxing, yoga and paddle boarding and sometimes she will even sit still long enough to read a book. She dreams of a world where no pet is homeless, and her goal for this year is to become more involved with rescue organizations in her local community.
