Amanda Boag, MA VetMB, DipECVECC, DipACVECC, DipACVIM, FHEA, MRCVS not only has an impressive list of post-nominals, she also has a passion for embracing new challenges. This, however, is coupled with the very real need to negotiate, compromise and accept the delicate and dynamic balance of family life and career, and the varied demands these place on our time and resources.
