My name is Siobhan Hubers and I have been working at Dierenkliniek Leeuwendael since December 2018. Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to become a veterinarian. At secondary school I did my best to get the highest possible grades to have a better chance of being accepted for the veterinary medicine course in Utrecht. I was lucky enough to be accepted in one go and then went through the course with great pleasure. In 2017 I received my diploma and I can now call myself a veterinarian. Before I started working at Diernekliniek Leeuwendael, I worked at various animal clinics and learned a lot there. I like the work as a veterinarian very much. I like that the work is so varied and no two days are the same.
As a child, besides goldfish and walking branches, I had rabbits for years. That's when my love for rabbits and rodents started. During my studies in Utrecht, I lived with two roommates who both studied veterinary medicine. Together we adopted two rats at Het Knaaghof, which we were able to enjoy for two and a half years. As veterinary students, we thought it would be fun to name them after the anatomical structure linea alba (the white line of connective tissue between the abdominal muscles) and so we named them Lientje and Ally. At the moment I have two dogs: a Greek cross named Tessi and greyhound Naomi. In my spare time I like to walk many kilometres with them through the woods or on the beach.
