Vet Tech Cafe - Alexandra Yaksich Episode

September 19, 2021

For most of our episodes for the Vet Tech Cafe, we reach out to a specific guest to discuss a certain issue in our field, or highlight a particular area of it. For other episodes, a guest might reach out to us, and the conversation grows more organically. That's exactly what happened for our latest episode with Alexandra Yaksich, BSc, AHT. Alex reached out to us recently to let us know she wanted to mention our podcast in an upcoming article she was writing for Veterinary Practice News about compassion fatigue. Naturally, we wanted to know more about this, and discovered a large portion of her career currently is writing about trends in the veterinary industry. Additionally, she is leading a campaign in her native Quebec to ban declawing in cats! This is exactly what we strive to highlight on the Vet Tech Cafe-veterinary technicians who are driving and leading change in our field. We really hope you'll join us for this fascinating discussion! Some of Alex's other recent articles are linked below. She also has a professional relationship with Euthabag, a purpose-built body bag as an alternative to a standard plastic trash bag. You can find out more about them below!

Vet Tech Cafe - Nynke Hillebrand Episode

Vet Tech Cafe - Nynke Hillebrand Episode

September 5, 2021

To continue our International Series, we invited Nynke Hillebrand, RVT, stateside recently, albeit virtually, to discuss life as a veterinary technician in The Netherlands! We met Nynke in 2013 when the three of us tested for the AVECCTN exam. Nynke came to San Diego, CA, all the way from The Netherlands for that exam.  Without giving too much away here, there are far more similarities than differences, and we believe hearing about all of that will be as fascinating to you as it was to us!  Spoiler alert, many of the same challenges we face in the US are also challenges faced there. Additionally, Nynke has transitioned out of a clinical role after experiencing burnout, and now is a certified systemic therapist and works with veterinarians and veterinary staff. What is systemic therapy and what does that look like? Download Sunday night at 8pm wherever you get your podcasts!

Interested in being part of our International Series and discuss what it looks like to be a veterinary technician or veterinary nurse in your country? Email us at vettechcafe@gmail.com
