I believe that every veterinary professional possesses an extraordinary gift that will make an incredible impact on their patients & the world. 

Hi! I’m Nicole Clausen, CSSGB, CCFP!

I’m an inventory management consultant and educator for you, the motivated, dedicated, passionate veterinary professional who is ready to pursue your powerful purpose and transform your veterinary practice.

My whole passion and vision behind starting Veterinary Care Logistics was a realization of the underwhelming lack of inventory management training and education. I have over 14 years of experience in the veterinary industry with responsibilities ranging from receptionist, technician assistant, lead receptionist, inventory manager, and operations manager for several different hospitals.

A common theme I noticed was a lack of inventory management, clarity, and control, whereas my focus was to create a viable, profitable system where there was only a void before. Veterinary Care Logistics was born out of the demand by several industry leaders to utilize my inventory system as a model throughout the country.

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 has created several online, self-paced RACE continuing education inventory courses. In addition, she founded the Veterinary Inventory Management Group on Facebook and the Veterinary Inventory Strategy Network; an online network and community dedicated to inventory management.

Let’s see how my unique approach will get you back to what you love… your patients. Let’s get coffee or lunch, or just email me, and we’ll talk about your goals.
