Taoist Manimal Podcast Ep 47 Dr. La’Toya Latney
Dr. La’Toya Latney is an exotic animal and zoo veterinarian. She's a boarded reptile medicine specialist under American Board of Veterinary Practitioners. Under their reptile specialty, she's one of 20 worldwide. She is the head of the Exotic Animal Medicine service at the University of Pennsylvania’s Veterinary Hospital. She grew up in a community that experienced poverty and violence as a regular part of daily existence, she has lived in a third world country, pilgrimaged out of the country and within it to study the classical Indian dance form Bharatanatyam, all while being a progressive advocate and teacher for a unique and growing service.
She also has been one of my closest friends for 7 years, legal family member by marriage, and soul-mate by nature of my deep appreciation, admiration, respect and love for her as a human living her own unique dharma while respecting and supporting my own. La’Toya and I recently separated as traditional life partners, choosing to live our own paths while continuing to love, respect and care for one another as individuals outside of a romantic partnership. We don’t manage to get much into that in this discussion, but I anticipate that being the subject of future conversations as we continue to redefine things like what family is, soulmates consist of, and (as tends to fit with my affinity toward Taoism) how definitions of things (love being one example) always fall quite short of the power of a thing.
In the meantime, La’Toya would like you to remember “don’t overextend yourself” as she redefines her own limits, while still making the world a better place because of her efforts in it.
