Julia's life has been shaped by integrating traditional and complementary medicine. She specializes in Medical Qigong, human-animal bond counseling, and in assisting veterinary hospital staff with the rigors of balancing clinical life and personal life. As with Dr. Brown, the opening of Harmony Veterinary Center was a lifelong dream come true. She has experienced the balance of working with both sides of medicine first hand and knows how powerful it can be to improving the quality of life for both pets and people.
Julia, who has developed multiple innovative management strategies for veterinary practices, founded the Minnesota Veterinary Practice Manager’s Network, www.MNVPMN.org in 1996. This organization is dedicated to the personal and professional development of veterinary hospital managers. Continuing to this day, the VPMN offers a support network, mentoring, and ongoing educational opportunities for hospital managers. In 2011, after 15 years of successful operation, the VPMN membership awarded her with their Visionary Award.
Volunteerism is a vital part of Julia’s life; she enjoys leading wilderness retreats, helping charities that support the homeless, and traveling with international groups to support nutrition projects for young children in developing countries. As Harmony Veterinary Center takes root she is looking forward to developing ways to work closely with charities that give back to pets and people in the west metro area.
Julia is also an outdoor and sports enthusiast. When not at Harmony Veterinary Center she can usually be found out on a wilderness trek, at a sporting event, playing with her three cats, or just hiking or biking on one of the many trails in our area.
Jamie has been part of the Harmony Veterinary Center staff since it opened in the summer of 2010 and is thrilled to be working at a clinic that truly looks at every aspect of pet health and wellness. Jamie is currently completing a specialty certification in animal rehabilitation therapy and is passionate about getting pets back on their feet and into as active a lifestyle as possible.
She lives with her husband, two very spoiled cats, Madelyn and Riviera Pinkerton, and their dog Mr. Wally Pickles. All of her pets whole heartedly supported her decision to pursue animal massage and rehabilitation therapy and are always willing to let her practice new techniques on them!
