Dr. Yoder graduated from Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences in 1975. He has held various positions throughout his career, including working in private practice, industry and academia. Now retired, Dr. Yoder serves as a consultant for the range sheep industry in the western United States.

“I am looking forward to working more closely with Dr. Yoder in his new role as WVC president during the upcoming year,” WVC CEO David Little said. “His vast experiences in organized veterinary medicine, commercial industry, academia, and in clinical practice will provide WVC with expertise and ideas few others can bring to the table.”

The association — which will hold its 91st annual conference in Las Vegas from February 17 to 20, 2019 — also announced the addition of two new board members: Travis McDermott, DVM, and Suzanne Russo, DVM.

Dr. McDermott’s clinical interests are dermatology, dentistry, internal medicine, surgery, endoscopy and laparoscopy. He received his undergraduate and veterinary degrees from Texas A&M University and has been practicing small animal medicine in Las Vegas since graduating in 2006.

Dr. Russo received her DVM from the Ohio State University and an MS in human resources management from Golden Gate University in San Francisco, California. She has worked in small animal private practice for 13 years in Northern California and Connecticut and has also held positions in the industry.

“Both individuals bring fresh and unique perspectives to the WVC board and will have an immediate impact as we continue to grow our organization,” Little said.
