Vet to Vet Coaching

Let's Get to Work!


Why Work with Dr. T?

Massive experience (and results) with veterinary leaders.

Heartfelt, personalized, authentic communication.

No judgment. No nonsense. Authentic support.

You deserve to work with someone who gets your world. 

You deserve a highly-trained, experienced coach who knows when to push, when to encourage, when to hold space and (frankly) when to refer.

You deserve a coach who has used their tools FIRST HAND and learned to thrive in this stressful profession AND who has seen these tools work TIME AND TIME AGAIN with other veterinary professionals

Do I REALLY need a coach?

"I didn't think I needed coaching. Now I tell everyone they need her.

Dr. Templeton is ... like ... my Veterinary Life Coach." 

Technically, I trained as an executive coach. This means I partner with my clients. I don’t tell them what to do or not to do. I ask future-focused, non-directive question that spark their own creative growth as they achieve their full professional and personal potential.


But a lot of clients think of me as their “Veterinary Life Coach”. Why? Feelings come up. Tough conversations about life and conflict and self doubt emerge. Sometimes there are tears. Often there is laughter. And by the end, there is direction, strategy, a path forward. 


Whether you want 1:1 coaching to dive deeply into massive growth or group-coaching to learn from others, we are here to ignite your professional and personal transformation.
