President's Message

Forward Thinking for the Future

“To fall into habit is to cease to be” – Miguel de Unamuno

Hello AABP members! Allow me to introduce myself. I am Fred Gingrich and your new president for the upcoming year. I am humbled, excited and honored to serve you in this role. I thought in my first president’s message I would tell you a little about myself and share my goals and vision for AABP for the coming year. I graduated from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1995, then moved to the central valley in California and worked in a large dairy practice for two years before returning to Ohio where I have been at a mixed-animal practice since. I currently own two veterinary practices, one small animal practice and one primarily dairy practice. I have been married to Michelle for 22 years and have four children, Abbey, Avery, Chloe and Ethan along with our family dog Buddy.

Veterinary medicine seems to be in a constant state of change. I often tell students who are looking at practices that a great question to ask is, “what are you doing now that you were not doing five years ago and what were you doing five years ago that you are not doing now?” I challenge each of you to ask that question. Falling into habit is the easy path, but finding new things will keep practice life challenging, interesting and offers the best service to our customers.
