Kaity unknowingly started her path to Blue Heron Consulting at the age of thirteen as she cultivated her love for animals working as a dog groomer in Cape Coral, Florida. During this experience, her passion for animals increased as she cared for those she groomed and she also began to appreciate what it took to run a small business.
She later graduated from the University of Central Florida with a bachelor’s degree in Hospitality and shortly thereafter met (her now Husband), Dr. Manny Lima, in the midst of his veterinary education at the University of Florida. She quickly observed that being a new veterinary graduate out in the field for the first time was no easy task. Even so, Kaity and Manny remained focused on their goal of veterinary practice ownership, a dream they recently turned into a reality. Kaity and Manny currently reside in Orlando, Florida where they are partners of Boggy Creek Animal Hospital. Most recently their practice was awarded, “Most Improved Hospital by Revenue” during Blue Heron’s Consulting’s 3rd Annual Invitational: Stick Your Neck Out THERE.
Through practice ownership, Kaity has an inside perspective on what it takes to battle through some of our industry’s challenges and is constantly reminded of the hurdles and victories of owning and operating a successful veterinary practice. This hands-on, real-world experience, combined with a diverse background in sales and recruiting, has positioned Kaity to help our clients conquer the challenges of putting a GREAT team together and leading them to deliver exceptional customer service and patient care.
In her spare time Kaity loves to listen to Audible, run with her pup and escape the flat lands of Florida to go hiking in the mountains whenever possible.
