"I believe in the power of infrastructural support that elevates
a practitioner's ability to heal."
Director of Operations
Tess Warner, MBA
Tess is passionate about helping the veterinary community achieve balance between good business practices, top-notch patient care, and personal wellbeing.
She has worked in a variety of roles throughout multiple industries: Certified Pharmacy Technician, dog trainer for obedience and casual agility, assistant manager in a general practice veterinary clinic, leader of a statewide practice manager organization, general manager of a specialty clinic devoted to canine rehabilitation, contracts professional for a government supply chain/aerospace organization, and manager of a fully-remote veterinary specialty consulting team. Currently, in addition to supporting Flourish, she acts as an operational and management consultant for several smaller veterinary organizations across the US.
Tess believes that bringing better business practices to a rapidly growing industry will ultimately lead to better veterinary medical care, longer companion animal lives, and happier pet owners. She enjoys devoting her time to providing business development and administrative support to clinicians throughout their careers.
Tess lives in Colorado, where she spends her leisure time enjoying the mountains, powerlifting, and pretending her two cats are dogs.
