Job-winning Veterinary Receptionist resume

Jeannette H. Barkhurst, DVM
Career Overview
Veterinary medicine has been an integral portion of my life for the last 23 years.  I am an experienced mixed animal clinician, that has primarily worked in a small animal practice in Central Oregon for the last 9 years. I focus on communication and client education to develop relationships that allow me to provide the best possible care for my patients.  The team aspect of veterinary medicine is also very important to me and developing and supporting the staff around me is an area I also excel in.  Continuing these practices in my future career endeavors will always be paramount.
Summary of Qualifications
  • 16 years as a Veterinarian
  • 4 years as a Veterinary Technician.
  • Skilled in Internal medicine, Diagnostic modalities, Dentistry, Surgery and Rehabilitation
  • Strong client communication skills and focus on client education
  • History of success in building practice volume and income.
  • Financial background relevant to practice management and development
Veterinary Experience
Associate Veterinarian 08/2008 to Current High Desert Veterinary, PC Bend, OR This is a two doctor practice, with the doctors practicing individually on separate days.  The main focus of the practice is small animal medicine, although equine, small ruminant and exotic species are also treated.  I have helped this practice to more than doubled in patient volume and revenue in the time I've been there.
Veterinarian 10/2002 to 08/2008 Jeannette H. Barkhurst, DVM Terrebonne, OR I maintained a private mobile practice and performed limited relief work during this period, while raising small children.  Continuing education was a regular focus during this time which allowed me to further my knowledge and skills.
Associate Veterinarian 05/2001 to 10/2002 Terrebonne Veterinary Clinic/Highland Veterinary Hospital Terrebonne/Redmond, OR As my first position out of Veterinary school, I split my days between a mixed animal practice in Terrebonne, OR and a small animal practice in Redmond, OR.  This provided a diverse case load and insight into the type of practitioner I would focus on being.

Professional Interests
  • Client Education.  This is the most important part of success in treating patients and developing long term, trusting relationships with clients. 
  • Diabetes Mellitus education and management.  My life has been intertwined with diabetes and this has become an area I like to see clients understand and manage appropriately so animals diagnosed with the condition can go on to lead full lives.
  • Equine genetics and reproduction.  This has been an interest of mine throughout life.  The ability to look at genetic crosses and plan for future generations is particularly intriguing.
  • Post surgical rehabilitation.  The care of a patient should not end when they are discharged after surgery.  Return to function is greatly aided by rehabilitation programs that encompass physical therapy and therapeutic laser treatments.
  • Wildlife (Avian) Orthopedic surgery and Rehabilitation.  I was asked to fix the wing of a Prairie falcon in 2016.  I have since taken part in the treatment of a number of wild birds with the ultimate goal of release into the wild being realized.

  • Leatherwork and Beadwork.  I started a tack company in 2006 that continues to supply beaded tack and accessories to equine enthusiasts.
