VIN FOUNDATION SPEAKER SERIES IS HERE TO HELP!
Tony Bartels, DVM, MBA
VIN Foundation Board Member
Tony Bartels graduated in 2012 from the Colorado State University combined MBA/DVM program. He is an employee of the Veterinary Information Network (VIN) and a VIN Foundation Board Member. Tony came to veterinary medicine as a career change by way of engineering and corporate finance. He and his wife, a small-animal internal medicine specialist practicing in Denver, have more than $400,000 in veterinary-school debt that they manage using Federal income-driven repayment plans. By necessity (and now obsession), his professional activities include researching and speaking on veterinary-student debt, providing guidance to colleagues on loan-repayment strategies and contributing to VIN Foundation initiatives. Beyond educational debt, his professional interests include small- and exotic-animal practice. When he’s not staring holes into his colleagues’ student-loan data, Tony enjoys fly fishing, ice hockey, and exploring Mountain West with his wife, Audra, and their rescued Labradoodles, Addi and Maggie.
