Listen in as VIN Foundation Executive Director Jordan benShea has a conversation with Dr. Christy Corp-Minamiji, a veterinarian with a love for words. Christy shares her non-traditional journey in the veterinary profession, how improving someone’s day is part of her job, and what she sees as the path for mental health, diversity and inclusion amongst colleagues.
Dr. Christy Corp-Minamiji
Christy Corp-Minamiji, DVM is a 1996 graduate of the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. She has worked as a small animal practitioner, in the biologics industry as a field researcher and technical services veterinarian/marketing director (it was a small company), and for a decade as a large animal practitioner. In 2011, she changed career tracks when the large animal practice was closed due to the recession. Since that time she has worked in communications for the Veterinary Information Network where she learns new job skills every day. She lives in Davis, CA with a rotating array of almost adult and adult offspring. Though she currently has no pets of her own she makes use of friends and family by loving on their furry and/or feathery companions whenever possible.
