Our story will make you believe in mentorship.


These revolutionary veterinary consultants met long before Dr. Dan Markwalder could even call Dr. Adam Conroy “doctor.”

Their story began when Adam worked as a kennel attendant in one of Dan’s Chicago-area clinics.

The pair reunited in 2005 when Adam took on a role as an associate veterinarian at one of Dan’s practices. Adam quickly became a partner in the group, and the two forged ahead into launching more hospitals together.

Currently, there are 14 general practices and 2 emergency hospitals under their guidance in the Chicago area.

The success that Dan & Adam have gleaned through mentorship and the development of leadership skills is what inspired the formation of MarkRoy Consulting.

After all, MarkRoy Consulting believes it is the leadership that makes your practice grow and succeed, not the medicine.

This veterinary consulting firm exists to make you the leader you need to be to succeed in your veterinary career and maximize your potential.

Our passions include:

Bridging generational gaps in your practice

Helping you find work-life balance

Assistance in rocking your team culture

Mentoring and helping others develop positive mentorship relationships

Your goal is our quest. Let us know how we can help.
