About Hosts

Dr Hubert Hiemstra

Hubert is a veterinarian and owner of an emergency clinic in Perth, Western Australia. He qualified in 2002 in South Africa and has worked in practice within 3 continents over his 20 year career. In this time he has personally experienced and witnessed in friends and colleagues how the challenges of a career in veterinary science can affect even the strongest of people. It has become his quest to discover how to build a balanced and fulfilled life armed with a degree in veterinary science and a good attitude.

Hubert divides his time between clinical and leadership roles at his busy practice, raising three wild boys, and researching, writing, mentoring and, now, podcasting about non-clinical skills in veterinary science. Check out his BLOG HERE
