Molly McAllister BA ’98, writes: “I was appointed the global chief medical officer for Mars Veterinary Health, the largest global veterinary care provider in the world. In my role, I oversee and support the delivery of veterinary care by approximately 6,500 veterinarians in nearly 3,000 veterinary hospitals on four continents. I am working to juggle this role while raising my two children, Anders and Harper, who are 9 and 6, so I am also focused on advocating for women in executive leadership. I am also the proud founder of the Diversify Veterinary Medicine Coalition, now in its third year of advancing BIPOC representation in veterinary medicine through the provision of scholarship, internship, and education grants.”
