Libby Landry

Hospital Director, VRC Specialty Hospital

After spending the first part of her career as a teacher, Libby Landry realized she wasn’t doing exactly what she loved. So she transitioned to veterinary medicine. “It was scary making the change because I was a little older,” she says. “I’d invested so much in my education already with a master’s degree.”

After a two-year certification program, Landry took a position at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in New Jersey. Her work didn’t go unnoticed, and she was soon asked to manage the emergency department. “I really loved motivating people and making sure they were happy. It was just such a natural part of me,” she says.

As she was promoted, Landry found herself managing a growing number of people. “I found it more satisfying to teach those on my team how to do something than it was for me to actually do it myself,” she says.

Landry eventually became director of nursing for seven of the network’s locations—the first position of its kind in the U.S. at the time. Along the way, she and a co-worker launched a program for aspiring vet assistants at Brookdale College. “It was the first assistant technicians program [in New Jersey] that was nationally recognized,” she says.

Last year, Landry became the hospital director of the Malvern-based VRC Specialty Hospital, where she leads a team of 130 and continues to bring education to the forefront.
