Dr. Sarah Wooten graduated from UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 2002. A member of the American Society of Veterinary Journalists, Dr. Wooten divides her professional time between small animal practice in Greeley, Colorado, public speaking on associate issues, leadership, and client communication, and writing. She enjoys camping with her family, skiing, SCUBA, and participating in triathlons.

As members of a giving profession, veterinarians sometimes struggle to learn that dirty little word: no.

The client can't pay. Your technician's in financial hot water. And everyone's looking for a discount. When do you push back at the chronic takers and the emotional drainers? CVC educators Drs. Sarah Wooten and Kimberly Pope-Robinson offer some perspective to help veterinary professionals stop owning every team and client problem personally.
