The heartbeat is a symbol of life. It’s also a metaphor for you—AAHA-accredited pet-care professionals—coming together at Connexity 2020. You and your team are at the heart of what makes AAHA great: you are the practice teams that keep our organization going strong and millions of pets thriving.
Take care of you
The heart carries us, but it needs to be cared for to keep it healthy and strong.
What you do builds out of the AAHA legacy of excellence. Your care and expertise bring joy and comfort to those who experience it. Connexity is where we join together to celebrate the power of our collective passion for the profession, to show love for one another, gather strength, regenerate, and find comfort.
“The sessions were awesome. I felt like we were working together to come up with real solutions that could be implemented right away and make real changes for the staff/clients/patients in our practices.”

Born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, to a family of Holocaust survivors, Michelle was accustomed to living with fear. But when she moved to New York to pursue a Masters in Branding at the School of Visual Arts, Michelle quickly realized that NYC was not for the fearful.
In efforts to rewrite her definition of fear, Michelle set out to face 100 fears in 100 days. Halfway into the journey, the project was discovered by media and became an instant viral phenomenon.
Michelle completed her hundreth challenge on a TEDx stage. This helped her turn a personal project into a global movement, allowing her to quit her job as an art director in advertising to pursue her passion.
Michelle discovered that inspiring others to go after their fears was her new calling. She is now touring the world speaking at companies, schools, and organizations—teaching audiences how to step outside their comfort zones as a way to tap into their full potential.
She is also the founder of Hello Fears, a platform aimed at making the world a braver place through a mix of live events, video series, podcast interviews, user-generated content, and daily inspirational posts.

“I truly appreciated the AAHA staff and their willingness to help. I have always loved AAHA conferences the best as you feel taken care of and special. Connexity just honed in on that and elevated the experience. I got to meet some new people, get inspired by influential people, learn some great things that I can apply right away and a lot that made me think . . . and just have a good time!”
