BSc (Psych), PGDip.Psych, MTrain&Dev, EdD CEO | Psychologist
As a pioneer and leading worldwide authority on veterinary wellbeing, I help veterinary professionals get on top of stress and conflict to avoid burnout and suicide, and also work with practice managers and owners to increase wellbeing, productivity, and retention in the workplace. Additionally, I provide workshops to small and large groups within the private and corporate sectors, and speak at conferences and symposiums both nationally and internationally.
As an advocate for the veterinary profession, I founded the charity "Love Your Pet Love Your Vet" and partnered with Royal Canin to reduce stigma in veterinary professionals seeking help, raising awareness within the community about the realities of working in the profession, and providing psychological and educational support to veterinary professionals.

CEO & Founder of Vets on Call
Morgan is the CEO & Founder of Vets on Call, an in-home veterinary service which combines technology and expert veterinary medicine to care for pets. He is an avid animal lover and has spent his life surrounded by an array of animals. The idea for Vets on Call was born when Morgan had difficulty getting his dog Milky to his local clinic.

Not afraid to question the status-quo , Morgan’s new perspective on vet care is bringing about positive change to the lives of the veterinarians working with Vets on Call.
