About the Author:

Dr. Harrell is an experienced veterinary practitioner, consultant, speaker and author. His professional career began at the University of Illinois where he assisted in research centered around toxicology, pharmacokinetics (the study of how drugs are metabolized and utilized by the body) and antibiotic resistance transference between people and animals while simultaneously attending veterinary college.

After finishing college he practiced general veterinary medicine, examining and treating both farm animals and pets for one year before deciding to limit his practice to dogs and cats only. It was then that he opened his own practice, which grew rapidly, allowing him to bring additional veterinarians into the practice. Eventually he purchased a second practice and built a new state of the art facility, which included a grooming salon and pet boutique on the grounds of the original pet hospital. Those practices have since been sold to allow Dr. Harrell to pursue other interests.

While still in private practice, Dr. Harrell became passionate about some pet products sold by Oxyfresh, because he had observed positive results in his patients while using these products. That led to him working in Oxyfresh booths at both veterinary and grooming conferences. At one of those events he met Sheryl Spangler. She had years of experience in the corporate world and was just then transitioning into the world of dog grooming as both a groomer and grooming school owner. 

Time and shared philosophies soon led Dr. Harrell and Sheryl to become business partners. Eventually they would form Pet Pros Business Coaching, LLC, a company that offers consulting services to both the grooming and veterinary profession. Both Dr. Harrell and Sheryl are certified business coaches and human behavior specialists, helping people to understand themselves; how others tend to perceive them; and how personalities affect team building, performance and harmony in the workplace.

They each are seasoned international speakers on topics of business principles and people behaviors/management. They have addressed pet professional and veterinary audiences, small business owners (of all types) and their peers in business coaching and veterinary consulting events. 

Because groomers have the opportunity to get to know pets and their owners, Dr. Harrell has recognized the importance of pet professionals as educators and first line promoters of responsible pet ownership and pet health maintenance. Out of a commitment to help ensure that they give sound pet health advise to their clients, he has become a regular contributor to Groomer to Groomer and Off Lead and Animal Behavior magazines on both pet health and business topics. Feedback from those articles written and presentations given was the impetus to make this book a reality.

Dr. Harrell continues to practice pet medicine and surgery while serving as Team Coordinator and Hospital Director of SPCA, Inc. in central Florida. He also continues as a pet consultant to Oxyfresh Worldwide and as a professional speaker, writer and consultant to the grooming, veterinary and small business communities.
