BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Innovacyn was created out of my love of animals. I grew up on a farm where I raised a variety of animals—both domestic and agricultural. The joy that came from caring for these animals over the years was my inspiration to enter the animal health business.
A large part of my motivation was the need for a safe wound care solution that had a broad range of capability—from pets to livestock. The result was the launch of Vetericyn in 2009. With the pressing need for wound management solutions in the human market, we expanded the science and launched Puracyn.
As Innovacyn continues to grow as a business and expand our product selections, we will stay true to the vision that ﬁrst inspired me on the ranch so many years ago—to reach and help as many animals and people as possible.
