Director of Inventory
Nicole Clausen, CSSGB, CCFP, CVBL has over 13 years of experience in the veterinary industry with over 10 years in small animal practice. She worked her way up from receptionist to Operations Manager in various clinics and understands the intricacies and internal workings of a successful practice.
A common theme she noticed in hospitals across the country was a lack of inventory management, clarity, and control, whereas her focus was to create a viable, profitable system where there was only a void before.
Her firm, Veterinary Care Logistics, was born out of the demand by several industry leaders to utilize her inventory system as a model throughout the country. She specializes in helping veterinary teams create a streamlined and efficient inventory management system.
Since inception, Nicole has authored several publications, including controlled substance log books and inventory policy & procedure manuals. Clients include national & regional corporations such as MWI Animal Health and Covetrus, hospital groups, and private veterinary hospitals all across the United States. She regularly speaks at different industry-sponsored conferences on inventory management, including the Veterinary Hospital Manager’s Association and the Texas Veterinary Medical Association, and has created several online, self-paced RACE continuing education inventory courses. In addition, she founded the Veterinary Inventory Strategy Network; an online network and community dedicated to inventory management.
Originally from the Pacific Northwest, she now lives in Montana with her 7 fur-babies. When she is not working, Nicole loves traveling, snorkeling, reading, gardening, swimming, and enjoying all that Montana has to offer.
