Christopher Lee, DVM, MPH, Diplomate ACVPM
Hailing from sunny California and UC Davis, Dr. Christopher Lee is a preventive medicine specialist. As such, his focus dwells on the interactive disciplines of infectious and parasitic diseases, toxicology, immunology, scientific study design, and epidemiology.
This diversity establishes a foundation from which Dr. Lee constructs practical wisdom for the everyday practitioner. Whether it is talking biostats and biologics or pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals, Dr. Lee strives to make the dogmatic, less enigmatic and the recondite, relatable.
Having spoken nationally for almost a decade, this self-proclaimed geek employs a dry humor style resulting from years of hospital ownership, employee management, and running rescues. He currently sits on the NAVLE Item Writing Committee and works as a senior professional services veterinarian at Merck Animal Health. All opinions and content provided by Dr. Lee are his own opinions and do not reflect the views or beliefs of Merck Animal Health.
While currently residing on the east coast with his family, he speaks nationally and virtually. With a studio setup, he can provide affordable webinars. Please schedule national speaking engagements at least one month in advance, international speaking, two months. (for better availability, three-month leeway is recommended).
I look forward to working with you.
Kayla Wells, DVM, MPH, Diplomate ACVPM
Dr. Wells has been involved in many aspects of agriculture her entire life. Growing up, she helped her family provide much of their own food, through ranching, apiculture (beekeeping), gardening, and canning. Good animal husbandry and proper food safety were a way of life. Disaster preparedness also played a big role. There was constant threat from tornadoes, fires, floods, blizzards and ice storms.
After graduating from Oklahoma State University with her DVM, Dr. Wells spent the next 12 years in mixed animal practice. Feedyard and dairy practice were her primary focus. She later became a founding member of the McClain County Animal Response Team (MCCART) to assist with emergency response.
These days, Dr. Wells helps protect the United States border from emerging infectious diseases in the area of south Texas. She remains passionate about emergency preparedness and disaster response. She currently works as a Field Veterinary Medical Officer for the USDA – APHIS. All opinions and content provided by Dr. Wells are her own opinions and do not reflect the views or beliefs of the USDA.
