About IGNITE

IGNITE was founded in 2016 with the idea of disrupting traditional veterinary learning. We want to deliver learners the education they need right when and where they need it.

Meet IGNITE's CEO and Founder

Jill Clark, DVM

CEO and Founder
Dr. Jill Clark founded IGNITE in 2016 with the singular goal of elevating the knowledge of veterinary teams to enhance their well being as well as the wellbeing of the patients and clients they serve. Her nearly 30 year career in veterinary medicine has been dedicated to the constant improvement of veterinary outcomes and operations and has created many opportunities for the personal and professional growth of the incredible people who make up the profession.

After graduating from Oklahoma State University with her DVM, Jill practiced medicine 10 years before taking on VP of Operations for an 80-hospital group. Next up she served 12 years with VCA Animal Hospitals, both in operations and as Vice President of Professional Relations and Knowledge Development. She was responsible for creating VCA’s award-winning corporate university, WOOF-U, which helped train and develop over 24,000 veterinary learners. This initiative was part of the reason she followed her dream to start IGNITE, which is the culmination of all that she learned about how veterinary teams learn best over the course of her career.

Her passion for animals is without limits. In her free time, Dr. Clark shows quarter horses and enjoys spending time with the love of her life, Dr. Bob Murtaugh, and their seven dogs, six horses, two cats, two goats, and two mini-Belted Galloway cows.
