A Learning Community for Practice Managers – Inside this IGNITE community, designed specifically for practice managers, are a number of different groups focusing on information and content you need to succeed. Managers interact with their fellow Practice Managers, along with our well-known experts, in our supportive environment to ask questions, solve problems, and share best practices. No judging, just unabashed support.

Practice Manager Learning
Here you’ll find RACE approved CE, VHMA approved courses, and bite-sized videos to help you take your management moxie to the next level. Watch quick, to-the-point instructional and narrative videos on a variety of topics that you encounter everyday. Search for a topic in particular or simply click on the pinned post and browse by category.
Help with those pesky HR questions is finally here! Our Human Resources Expert, Dana Buck, will be able to answer questions and guide you through tough situations.
Ask your IGNITE colleagues questions about practice management issues, equipment they like (or don’t), how they would handle a difficult client or employee scenario, or just share a good idea that has worked for you. The best part? You get responses in real time!
Got unused equipment collecting dust? Members can post any equipment they are looking to sell, or looking to buy from another hospital. Our goal with this group is to extend the life of useful veterinary equipment. If it doesn’t sell and you want to donate it, IGNITE will help get your used equipment to a veterinary-related charity.
Attention all aspiring CVPMs! We have a place for aspiring CVPMs to share resources and ideas, ask questions and get support from their peers.
Meet IGNITE’s Practice Management Expert
All of IGNITE’s practice management communities are moderated by our resident subject matter expert, seasoned and well-versed in the art of managing a veterinary practice.
Dr. Annika VanNoy is a learning strategist fueled by compassion, curiosity, and dissatisfaction with the current state of adult learning in the veterinary industry. In her PhD work she combined her passion for both teaching and learning while investigating the possibilities that modern cognitive psychology models provide to adult learning. Her passion was recognized with two teaching awards and a graduate fellowship to sponsor her PhD studies. During her graduate work, Annika followed another one of her passions– the love and care for animals.
She started working at a large veterinary hospital in Austin, TX and quickly began to see the wide array of opportunities for improving veterinary continued education and the opportunities for all people to expand their careers in veterinary medicine. Annika took over the Hospital Administrator role after only having worked at the hospital for two short years; her passion and eagerness to implement change and promote new, challenging approaches to learning didn’t stay unrecognized for long. Annika jumped at the opportunity to lead the Learning Department of Pathway Vet Alliance. During her tenure as the Director of Learning at Pathway Vet Alliance, Annika has developed trainings that have been rolled out to best support the over 3,000 veterinary professionals within Pathway. In her current role, she oversees all Learning endeavors and facilitates national workshops to train veterinary professionals on Emotional Intelligence, Conflict Resolution, and Business Operating principles.
We used to wonder about where and how to find resources for any number of topics, and now our go-to is IGNITE! It’s so great to be able to find answers to questions, but even more, to be able to network with some absolutely fantastic people and know we are not alone in whatever situation we are facing. THANK you so much!Lisa Paulson, RVTCompanion Animal Hospital
I love that this forum gets us all sharing and helping each other. We are all here to help the pets have a better quality of life. Helping each other assures that this priority is met via all the intricate details that are required to maintain a smooth running clinic.

Previously it seemed like veterinary practices kept each other at a distance and weren’t friendly with one another, but IGNITE allows us to ask each other questions and connect. It gives us the opportunity to help each other without the feeling of competition getting in the way. Broadway Vet loves what IGNITE has done so far and can’t wait for all that will come from it in the future!Rebecca PeppersackBroadway Veterinary Hospital
