Episode #46: A Veterinarian’s Story, When Dreams Become Reality w/ Naomi Mellor

We would like to do a land acknowledgment. Mandi and Naomi live in the traditional lands of the hinonoeino biitoowu (Arapaho), Tsesthoe (Cheyenne) and Nuu-agha-Tuvu-pu (Ute).
Naomi Mellor sat down with Naomi Marquez and Mandi Benecke to tell her fascinating story of pursuing her lifelong dream of being a veterinarian. She talks about the amazing adventures that the profession took her on, she talks about compassion fatigue, and about why she quit being a veterinarian full time to pursue other ventures of ultra-endurance sports and podcasting.
Naomi Mellor is the founder of the Skylark Collective and The International Women’s Podcast Awards, and her mission is to raise the voices of women in the podcasting world. She hosts and produces three podcasts, Smashing The Ceiling, Borborygmi: Noises From The Veterinary World, and Veterinary Woman, and Naomi’s passion for supporting and elevating other women is tangible in the stories she tells in her shows. Naomi is also a veterinarian specializing in horses, and she continues this work part-time around her podcasting.
