In her new role, Amanda Landis-Hanna, DVM, will work closely with 2 of the organization's key audiences. 

Earlier this month, The Bridge Club—the first video-based professional community created to connect the veterinary industry through conversation—welcomed Greg Geckles as chief operating officer. Last week, the organization announced the appointment of Amanda Landis-Hanna, DVM, to the role of vice president of veterinary and animal welfare outreach.

In her new role, Landis-Hanna will work closely with The Bridge Club Students, a new division dedicated to helping veterinary students engage in the industry and build networks. She will also work to give animal welfare organizations access to The Bridge Club Pets, a forum for educational conversations between veterinary professionals and pet owners that give real-time answers to questions about pet nutrition, wellness care, behavior, and life-stage needs.

“Amanda has been fortunate to experience all sides of veterinary medicine. She will be an amazing mentor and facilitator for our students and further connect new pet owners with the education they desperately need,” says Catherine Haskins, The Bridge Club founder and CEO, in an organizational release.

Landis-Hanna has nearly 20 years of experience in small animal and exotic medicine, as well as shelter and relief medicine, in both corporate and private practices. Prior to joining The Bridge Club, she served for nearly 4 years as senior manager of veterinary outreach for PetSmart Charities.

“I am delighted to be working with The Bridge Club team to increase visibility to veterinary schools and animal welfare organizations,” Landis-Hanna told dvm360®. “The Bridge Club provides high-quality education in a convenient, quick format.”
