Our Website Team

VetMedTeam is the product of the drive and vision of a number of very talented people.  Each believes in the value of a highly educated veterinary practice team. Each also believes that every member of the practice team has a vital part to play in the delivery of quality veterinary medicine. 


  Pat Lynch: Director of Operations

Pat worked for ten years as the veterinary assistant and practice manager for a small animal house call doctor in New York State. During those years she came to understand the issues facing veterinary medicine, including the education and utilization of the practice team. She was there at the birth of VetMedTeam in January 1999 and since then has applied her communication, organization, and computer skills to the growth and success of the company. Pat is responsible for day-to-day operations of VetMedTeam as well as development of future features and endeavors. As Director of Operations she works closely with our IT developer to construct and improve website features.

While living in New York Pat was very involved as an adult member of the Boy Scouts of America. She was a member of the staff of Camp Ranachqua, Ten Mile River Scout Reservation, serving as Trading Post Director and Camp Commissioner as well as assisting the Camp Director. Pat participated in many membership training seminars and earned the highest adult leader training designation - Wood Badge. Pat then served as a member of the training staff in the next Wood Badge session. In addition, she was a member of the Order of the Arrow and earned the highest designation - Vigil Honor. Pat worked for many years with her local Humane Society, serving as the Treasurer and participating in a number of Fund Raising programs, as well as providing medical care for the animals.

A Florida resident since 2003, she and her husband share their home with cats and a Tennessee Walking Horse.


  Tess Richardson, M.A: Course Presentation Developer

Owner of Richardson Ideaworks, Tess began working with VetMedTeam in 2010, converting content author's words into the presentations you see within many courses. Work in radio copywriting, graphic design, presentations, and marketing has prepared her for this challenge. Tess obtained an undergraduate degree at the University of Missouri-Columbia in radio/TV/film production, with a hope to one day work in medical communications. Later, she returned to Mizzou for an M.A. in advertising and magazine design, and spent the next 14 years as a director of communications.

Tess calls Wisconsin home, and barely survives the winters along with her husband, daughter, four cats, one dog, a spinning wheel and bags of sheep's wool.
