Sitting in a talk by @vetpracticevahs at @unchartedvet #uvc2017… Cody had record a personal video of who we are, just to get used to the idea of looking at ourselves on a screen. A simple task that is truly filled with fear for so many of us! Me included! I’m completely blown away at the amount of technology and knowledge that is available if we simply think outside the box. Cody was never classically trained to record, edit movies, post #vblogs, or build his own #YouTube channel… but here he is, completely crushing it!!! #veterinarian #vetlife
