In this episode, Dr. Lillie Davis, a Veterinary Oncologist, is focused on treating animal cancer and improving her patients' quality of life with a healthy balance of evidence-based medicine and compassion. Dr. Davis is also a first-generation college graduate who grew up in The Bronx, NY - she’s open about the path to where she is today was not easy and how financially and emotionally difficult it’s been.
Why empathy is part of her professional and personal meaning.
The three key areas of change needed in veterinary medicine.
Her upbringing and foundation of finances.
Financial literacy for women and the challenges women within veterinary medicine face.
Diversity in veterinary medicine and becoming an advocate for others - how people have shown up for her.
Her question for me - certainly unique and one that shows my lack of knowledge of Harry Potter (spoiler alert).
