Caitlin Furlong

Caitlin Furlong

Caitlin was born and raised in New Jersey surrounded by animals since day one. Her dad is a small animal veterinarian and both parents instilled the love and respect for all animals in Caitlin and her brothers. After graduating college she spent several years as a horseback riding trainer. In 2018, she joined B.W. Furlong & Associates, an equine veterinary practice, as the Marketing and Events Coordinator. Working in the veterinary industry, Caitlin started to learn about veterinary suicide and the lack of resources readily available. Caitlin reached out to Not One More Vet and asked if B.W. Furlong & Associates could host a 5K race to raise money for the NOMV grants program, while also raising awareness in the community and starting a mental health initiative to her family’s practice. After a successful event, Caitlin began talks with the NOMV board about making this an annual event and growing it much larger, which we now know as NOMV’s Race Around the World! Creating positive mental health initiatives and resources for the veterinary profession has been Caitlin’s driving passion in joining the NOMV board as Secretary. In her spare time, Caitlin loves traveling around the world with her husband, Adam, playing with her dogs, Hank and Derby, reading with her cats, Pinot and Veuve, and fussing over her pony, Jellybean. Caitlin joined the NOMV Board of Directors in 2020.
