gaumnitzWhat is your special power?
Creating (and editing) accurate and reliable content for our varied veterinary audience, preferably using the Oxford comma.

What makes you tick?

Horses, anything horses. I love pretty much everything about them … riding, caring for them, grooming them (especially after a roll in the mud), cleaning tack, mucking out barns. I love the tactile, no-tech nature of horseback riding. Oh, and I have two fabulous grown children and a husband who are the light of my life. (Yep, they are all well aware of my strong affection for horses.) I also love words and, by extension, reading. I can get lost perusing a dictionary. (Yep, my family is aware of that as well.)

What is your spirit animal?
Um… I guess, horses. :)  But cats come in a pretty close second.

What is your special power?
Identifying and sharing information that helps my colleagues help their patients. I’m dogged in pursuit of answers.

What makes you tick?
Nonhuman organisms; motivated, constructive, jolly people; the outdoors; and compelling stories.

What is your spirit animal?
It’s part owl, octopus, cat, and snail.

What’s your special power?
Analysis and reporting for eMedia campaigns. As eMedia Metrics Analyst, I dig in and provide support wherever I can, from web operations to sales support to analyzing traffic and user patterns for improving client campaign performance.

What makes you tick?
Family, writing fiction, and going to concerts. This year alone, I will have seen Tool, Pink Martini, Joan Jett, The Who, Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, and The Cure—to name a few. Throw in a dash of art for kicks and there you have it.

What is your spirit animal?
I took an online quiz and it said my spirit animal was a bird, with a giant picture of a bald eagle. Apparently, like birds, I bond with few but am resilient, creative and tend to stay positive. Although I don’t really see myself as a predator like an eagle, more of a nightingale (because my husband once wrote me a love poem referencing that bird).

What is your special power?
I create content for our website and print publications. I have a special interest in finding new tools to create interactive online content and I nerd out on all things hospital design.

What makes you tick?
I love staying active and my Australian cattle dog mix makes a great running buddy. When I’m not running or playing tennis I can usually be found hanging out with friends and family. Or baking. I love to cook and bake.

What is your spirit animal?
A cheetah. I wish I could run that fast.

What is your special power?
As Digital Content Director, I manage the systems and strategy for all of our digital platforms, including our websites, e-mails, social media, analytics tools, audience databases, and more.

I’m also the national president of the American Society of Business Publication Editors and am helping the association implement a cohesive digital strategy.

What makes you tick?
I’m an avid reader, and I love square foot gardening and cooking. Happiness is sitting around a campfire with my husband, two kids, and Australian shepherd.

What is your spirit animal?
My favorite animals are gorillas, chimpanzees, and orangutans. But if I had to choose one to sum up my professional life, it’d be the chameleon. If I could sum up the veterinary market and media landscape with only a single word, it’d be change. Change is the only constant. It’s up to us to stay one step ahead and never stop learning.

What is your special power?
I create technological workflows that are reused on reoccurring projects. Website management, online ad creation/analytics, video production, print layouts, animations, e-mail newsletters and other various tasks seem to quickly fill the days around the office.

What makes you tick?
My unstoppable spouse (Not for a lack of trying ^_^), drawing, painting, my kid, adjunct teaching, taking classes, photography, audio/video hobbies, landlord duties, and various freelance projects when the mood strikes me.

What is your spirit animal?
Currently, I’m feeling a good vibe with hermit crabs. They’re great at taking a small effort and building on that. They’re also extremely social little buggers and I’m also annoyingly outgoing at times, although I’ve never crawled on top of a random stranger and tried hitching a ride like they do.

Window clings are eye-catching advertising that provide their own backlighting. This example, featuring Merial’s OraVet at CVC Kansas City, runs about 20′ high—as tall as this section of the convention center can take.
