Elise Hyer joined Southern Veterinary Partners’ team in 2017 and serves as Acquisition Manager. Originally a Mississippi native, Elise graduated summa cum laude from Mississippi State in 2006 with a B.S. in Marketing. She grew up in the country where good manners and animals were essential in every household.
After accepting a job with Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, Elise moved to southeast Louisiana. During her 10 years with Pfizer, Elise was promoted and earned numerous awards including the coveted Vice President’s Cabinet.
Outside of work, Elise loves to travel, read, workout, be near the water—ocean, lake, or river will suffice—and spend as much time as possible with her friends and family. She now calls Birmingham home with her husband and son, and their dog, Leia, and frog, Billy Bob Joe.
What attracted you to working in the veterinary industry?
"Having worked in human health for over a decade, I love working in the medical industry but with a different focus and culture. The vet industry is comprised of hard-working, humble people who make a difference every day. I am honored to be a small part of that."
What do you enjoy most about working at SVP?
"Very few careers allow autonomy and entrepreneurial spirit - I am able to truly own my role. I have clear goals but I decide each day how to achieve them. SVP is a cohesive, fun team - at the end of the day, the people we work with make each day, every tough project, all the hard work, etc more fun. We have a culture where I feel like we are in it together and that I have so many people I can rely on if I need help."
