Meet the Class of 2022
Hear from a finalist:
One alumnus is Kiah Hann, a veterinary surgeon who works for Medivet Scunthorpe. She has autism and is in a wheelchair. On joining the class of 2022, she said: “It is important to me because I am a member of the vet community with a visible disability, and my aim where possible is always to try and further awareness of disability within the community, whether that’s visible or not. “There are hundreds of us out there who, with the right accommodations, can continue to be in practice should we so wish. “We should be supported and have people focus on what we are able to do, and what we are bringing to the profession – not what we’re not able to do; especially during times of a recruitment crisis and a retention crisis.”
"It was so uplifting to read about the wonderful achievements of such a diverse range of young vet professionals. The future of the profession is in good hands"
Jill Maddison - Professor of General Practice at the RVC
"30 under Thirty is such a wonderful initiative. The veterinary industry has been difficult for all involved over the past few years, so to see such an amazing array of candidates for this was incredible"
Rory Cowlam - TV Vet & Author
"I have very much enjoyed reading and learning about all the achievements our nominees have accomplished in their careers so far. What a strong set of individuals that challenge our industry to be better – we are very proud of them all"
Clive Groombridge - Managing Director, Pioneer Veterinary Products
"The nominations were all such an inspiring read and it illuminated a bright light of who may help lead our profession forwards. The younger members of our profession are our future, and should be championed and encouraged for their hard work so far"
Louise Northway - RVN
Charlotte Ellicott, Head of Marketing and Content for the Vet Shows:
"All veterinary professionals have had a particularly tough few years, especially those early in their career who have missed out on key milestones. This initiative is designed to give them a real boost. Our aim is to create long-term communities of like-minded, passionate people who will use collaboration and share best practices to drive the profession forward."
"We will be hosting the VS30 annually - giving all young veterinary professionals something to aspire to. The London Vet Show is the perfect platform to host the VS30. Elevating the next generation of veterinary leaders is a real passion of the Vet Show team."
