DVM MRCVS PgCertSAS MSc MAPP
Olivia Oginska is a veterinarian, speaker, positive psychology coach, a certified workplace conflict mediator and an emotional intelligence specialist. Since 2010, Liv has been immersed in a global veterinary community, completing multiple externships in the UK, North America and Australia. In 2016, when she graduated as a veterinarian from the university of Poland, she pursued a veterinary career in the UK. That is also where Liv gained experience and credentials in positive psychology, emotional intelligence and conflict mediation, so that her passion for human wellbeing and interpersonal dynamics could be fully developed. For the last 3 years, Liv devoted her veterinary career to supporting both individuals and the veterinary teams (especially leaders) in becoming more human savvy. While contributing most of her time to consulting other veterinarians, Liv still works as a part-time clinician, so that she can fully comprehend the complexity and the emotional demands of the clinical roles. In the future, Liv’s work can be carried to the organisations that are (or would benefit from becoming) aware of the immense impact of that intra-team dynamics have on the wellbeing of veterinary teams, as well as their performance and the business’s success.
