Andi Davison, LVT, CAPP, APPC

Andi has been on the wild ride that is veterinary medicine since 2001 and she’s experienced it all. After graduating from Michigan State’s Veterinary Nursing program, Andi landed a role at Mississippi State’s CVM large animal hospital. At MState she experienced everything from surgery and lameness to reproductive medicine, eventually settling into a lead technician role.

Andi, and her husband, veterinarian Dr. Mike Davison, opened Davison Veterinary Medicine in south central Kentucky where they spent 9 years serving a variety of mixed-animal clients. From small animals and horses to farm animals, this was a joyful, if challenging, chapter in her life. Most recently, Andi served as veterinary care manager at the University of Florida’s large animal hospital. She led a large team of technicians in caring for horses, goats, pigs, camelids, cattle, and even the occasional tortoise.

All these experiences gave Andi a front-row seat to the realities of vet med. This is a fulfilling and meaningful career. It can also be mentally and emotionally challenging and most of us seem too afraid to talk about it. That strain took its toll causing Andi to pivot.

She now dedicates her broad experience and advanced education to promote positive change in the profession as a Positive Change Agent with Flourish Veterinary Consulting.

Andi and Mike live in Ocala, Florida on a lovely horse farm with their 6 horses, 4 dogs, and 3 cats. In her off time, she can be found in the barn preparing for her next three-day-event.
