Lisa
Greenhill,
Ed.D.
Senior
Director,
AAVMC

Dr. Greenhill heads Institutional Research and Diversity for the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges. She believes " colorblind " ideologies are problematic
because not acknowledging race prevents participation in advancing social change. She is
widely recognized for implementing the Diversity Matters Initiative at national and local
levels, and for working to engage the veterinary medical profession within communities
of color. She will continue to be a valuable resource for the veterinary community in
2021 as it tackles issues of bias and institutional racism.

Liz
Hughston,

Hughston, CVT, VTS (SAIM, ECC), is a relief veterinary technician and consultant
in the San Francisco Bay area. She is president of the National Veterinary Professionals Union, whose members dream of making veterinary support a sustainable, lifelong
M.Ed., RVT
career. Among her passions are crisis and suicide prevention, issues exacerbated by the
Consultant,
COVID-19 pandemic. She champions Not One More Vet, a program that provides
Relief Technician support to veterinarians and staff who are struggling or considering suicide. Her many
timely interests position her as an influential player in veterinary medicine.

Garth
Jordan,
CEO
American
Animal
Hospital Assn.

Jonathan
" Jay "
Mazelsky,
MBA
CEO, Idexx
Laboratories

Jordan joined AAHA after a stint with the Healthcare Financial Management Association, which has a membership of more than 56,000 finance professionals. There, he
designed and executed a digital transformation of its business model. Retention rates
increased more than 5% and new member acquisition increased more than 20%. His
goals for AAHA include streamlining the membership process and offering solutions to
common challenges. " I look forward to applying what I've learned to AAHA's important
mission to provide the highest quality care to pets and their people, " he says.
Mazelsky, MBA, is at the inner core of Idexx Laboratories Inc.'s culture of innovation.
As president and CEO, he pilots his team to explore technology for better health of pets
and livestock. Challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic have him striving to
capture value in new ways, as the company develops diagnostic and information-technology-based products and services to advance medical care, improve staff efficiency and
help veterinarians build more economically successful practices.

Alison
McIntyre,

During the first months of the pandemic, contactless animal health treatment and
emergency service evolved quickly, greatly expanding the market for animal telehealth,
telemedicine and teletriage. McIntyre, the new Virtual Veterinary Care Association's first
executive director, is bringing this nonprofit's vision to veterinarians. Under her guidance, they can share best practices and educational resources as the industry evolves to
serve more pets as well as practitioners.

Gavin
Newsom,

Newsom was the first governor to call for residents to stay home to prevent spread of COVID19, and it worked-at first. But new restrictions followed, sometimes changing weekly and
angering small business owners. Infection rates rose. Newsom closed indoor restaurant dining,
and then outdoor dining, and told people not to meet in groups.Then he was spotted among a
party of 22 at a chichi restaurant in Yountville, inciting accusations of hypocrisy. In mid-December, Associated Press reported that a recall effort against him was picking up steam: " Organizers
say they have collected more than half the nearly 1.5 million petition signatures needed to place
the recall on the ballot, and they have until mid-March to hit the required threshold. "

Association Executives and the AVMA's director of Special Projects. Challenge him to
host a virtual conference that delivers educational content, interactive sessions and social
experience to members around the world, and he'll show you a successful on-demand
digital event, despite the global pandemic. And as for his next project? Stay tuned for
this seasoned executive's next move.
