Dr. Meredith Jones is an emergency veterinarian and co-founder of the Veterinary Financial Summit, a financial conference and online community for veterinary professionals.

She is a self-professed “money nerd” who attends financial conferences and reads about personal finance in her spare time. In 2016, she completed training to become a financial coach and founded the Debt-Free Vets Facebook group. In addition to her role as an ER vet, she is a Financial Mentor at Veterinary Emergency Group (VEG).

In our conversation with Meredith we discuss:

  • Why Meredith got interested in personal finance
  • How she was able to pay off over $100k in student loan debt in 3.5 years
    • Who the Veterinary Financial Summit is for
    • Why should veterinarians attend the Veterinary Financial Summit and what will attendees leave with
    • Meredith’s personal finance book favorites
