Amy Grice, VMD, MBA, who retired in 2015 as managing partner of Rhinebeck Equine in Rhinebeck, New York, to open a veterinary consulting practice in Virginia City, Montana, has joined the board of directors of the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP).

Upon receiving her veterinary degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1990, Grice joined Rhinebeck Equine as an equine-exclusive ambulatory practitioner. She became a partner in the practice in 1996. In the ensuing years, the practice expanded from a four-doctor ambulatory practice to a 13-doctor referral hospital with an ambulatory division.
Grice earned her MBA from Marist College in 2014. In her new role as president of Amy Grice, VMD, MBA, LLC, she seeks to help veterinarians navigate an increasingly challenging practice environment to lead more satisfying and successful lives.
An AAEP member since 1990, Grice serves on the Educational Programs Committee and AAEP Foundation Advisory Council. She previously served on the Leadership Development, Nominating and Owner Education committees. In addition, she served the Hudson Valley Veterinary Medical Association board of directors and the Marist College Premedical Advisory Committee.
The American Association of Equine Practitioners, headquartered in Lexington, Kentucky, was founded in 1954 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the health and welfare of the horse. Currently, AAEP reaches more than 5 million horse owners through its over 9,000 members worldwide and is actively involved in ethics issues, practice management, research and continuing education in the equine veterinary profession and horse industry.
