Neighbors often ask what I do for a living when I'm out introducing myself. I manage a locally owned equine veterinary clinic. We only work with horses (occasionally a goat slips in there), and we're entirely ambulatory, so the four veterinarians travel around Dane County, from Mazomanie to Brooklyn to Marshall, and everything in between. I primarily stay in the office and do our marketing, accounts receivable, tech projects, etc.
In my work, I see that there is far more that we Madisonians have in common with rural Dane County than things that separate us. We are all hoping for better roads, more transit options, greater public health, clean land and water, solid schools, and safe communities.
