How you present yourself directly affects how others perceive you—and the business you represent. If your image isn’t polished and professional, team members will have less respect for you, clients will have less confidence in your practice, and less money will get spent on veterinary services.

This is why we asked image consultant Shawn McVey, MA, MSW, to channel his inner Clinton from TLC's What Not to Wear and take our victim—err, new veterinary practice manager—Wendy Blanco, RVT, of the Cat Clinic of Johnson County in Lenexa, Kan., on a wild ride through the women's department. It wasn't always easy to be center of attention, but Blanco took one for the (veterinary) team and let Shawn transform her style from fun in scrubs to professional chic.
