“Dr. Leininger is beloved by her colleagues, she excels at everything she does, and her love of veterinary medicine knows no bounds. My gratitude to this amazing Honoree deepens with every passing year. She epitomizes all that is right with veterinary medicine, never wavering from her core beliefs. We all still have so much to learn from her,” said Lea-Ann Germinder, President, Germinder + Associates, Inc.

Germinder and Dr. Leininger first met when Dr. Leininger was the President-Elect of the AVMA and Germinder presented “Pets Need Dental Care, Too!” to the AVMA PR Council. Later they worked together on dozens of media interviews during Dr. Leininger’s tenure as AVMA president, as spokesperson for National Veterinary Month and later as Dr. Leininger oversaw the Mark Morris and Leo Bustad Award programs for Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Inc.

“It is so generous of Lea-Ann to include me as one of her Germinder20 Power of Pink Honorees! I have treasured the many years we have worked together and am grateful to call her my friend,” said Dr. Leininger.
