Dagmar joined SVP in March of 2020 (yes, right at the beginning of COVID-19) after 19 years in our industry, although it took a while to get here.
A native of Buffalo, New York, she left the Blizzard City for the relative warmth of the Buckeye State, graduating from The Ohio State University in 1986 with a degree in Finance. She spent the first 14 years of her career in commercial banking (Fifth Third Bank) and corporate finance (The Limited corporate headquarters) in Columbus, Ohio before moving to Maryland. She soon decided that working with small business owners in the animal health world was where she belonged and made the jump to veterinary pharmaceutical distribution in 2001 as an Outside Sales Rep (Penn Vet and MWI Animal Health) and most recently as a Regional Sales Manager for Nutramax.
Outside of work, Dagmar enjoys triathlon (she has completed 3 Ironman distance events), travel, cooking and baking (cookies in particular), and spending as much time as possible outdoors. She shares custody of 3 golden retrievers and loves living in Harford Co with her partner, Dan.
