About Us

Started in 2009, EquiManagement is the only magazine and website developed to focus only on the business of equine veterinary medicine. EquiManagement is owned by Active Interest Media (AIM), which is the largest network of equine publications and websites in the industry. Magazines and websites include:

EquiManagement is quarterly magazine that goes to all members of the AAEP, AAEVT, and VBMA. Subscriptions also are available to any veterinarian who requests one by contacting KBrown@aimmedia.com.

EquiManagement.com is a destination resource website designed to assist equine veterinarians and those in veterinary practices who are involved in providing services or managing business. We will regularly update content that will be designed to address the unique and not-so-unique business and management issues facing the equine veterinary professional.

EquiManagement.com recognizes that a veterinary business is like any other business and, in order to be successful, the practitioners and managers need access to information on the latest products and ideas to create sound business strategies. Through articles, downloads, news, research, in-depth features and videos, EquiManagement.com will provide veterinarians and business associates the information they need to better develop and manage their practices.

Ultimately, EquiManagement.com is a forum for the exchange of ideas and a tool through which to communicate. In that sense, it is your website, so your input is important to us.

 

Kimberly S. Brown, Associate Publisher/Editor

Brown has been involved with equine publishing since 1980. During a career that spanned 29.5 years at Blood-Horse Publications, Brown helped found and lead The Horse brand, ending her tenure with that company as Publisher/Editor of The Horse: Your Guide To Equine Health Care and TheHorse.com. In 2010 Brown left Blood-Horse Publications to join Dr. Joe Pagan’s internationally renowned equine nutrition and research company Kentucky Equine Research (KER). While there Brown developed the outstanding content-driven website Equinews.com (recognized as a top-three Addy Award finisher for design), and her team created award-winning newsletters and content as recognized by AHP.

Because of her love for publishing and the equine and veterinary industries, Brown returned to the industry when she took over EquiManagement in December of 2012. Her role expanded with AIM when she accepted the position as Associate Publisher/Editor of StableManagement.com in mid-2013. She now works full-time for AIM.
