This special Veterinary Woman podcast is kindly supported by Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging – improving the lives of animals and of those who care for them.

Mother and daughter Annie and Georgi Makin podcastduo Annie and Georgi Makin discuss their individual approaches to work-life balance and how that differs generationally.

Annie is Chief Commercial Officer for Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging. After graduating in 1990, she started her career in human healthcare before moving into the veterinary sector 12 years ago. Annie had her family early and delayed her return to work to watch her children, Georgi and Tom, grow up before resuming her career.

Georgi is the Editor at Phacilitate, looking after all digital content from news coverage to webinars for the advanced therapies industry, which includes biotech and clinical development of cell and gene therapies. Georgi started working in the veterinary industry as a teenager before studying bioveterinary sciences at the RVC, and subsequently moving into a career in science communication. She is now 27 and is in the process of buying her first home.

Working in similar fields, they discuss their different experiences of working life and workplace equality.
