Dr. Adam Conroy

Chicago, IL

Animal Care Clinic

Dr. Adam Conroy graduated from the University of Illinois in 2005 where he completed both his undergraduate and veterinary education. Upon graduation his goals were focused on becoming a proficient surgeon, practice owner and becoming a strong leader. To help accomplish these goals, Dr. Conroy went to work for Dr Dan Markwalder at Animal Care Clinic in Algonquin, IL. After 2 years of working closely with his mentor, Adam became a partner and went on to open 4 more locations over the next 15 years. Over that time he developed a strong passion for mentorship and leadership development. Those interests ultimately led him co-founding MarkRoy Consulting with his longtime business partner Dr. Markwalder. Together they traveled nationally performing lectures on the importance of customized mentorship and personal development. Based upon the feedback they received from these speaking engagements and consultation sessions they co founded two other companies, 7S Society and Vet Mentor Solutions. 7S Society was created to help empower veterinarians to live out their dream of becoming a practice owner. Vet Mentor Solutions was created as a catalogue of strategic mentoring videos that helps create confidence and adjunctive mentoring to veterinarians at all stages in their career. In 2020, Adam and his partners at Animal Care Clinic, strategically decided to partner their group of hospitals with a larger organization called Mission Veterinary Partners. This partnership has provided Adam a national platform to carry out his mission of creating the ideal mentorship, leadership and goal oriented experience for veterinarians. He continues to perform orthopedic surgeries weekly and adores his wife, 2 boys and 3 pups.
