Dr. Ann Herbst DVM, BSc Biochemistry, Emergency Veterinarian and Founder of Kick Ass Vets
Ann graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in Canada in 2013. She worked in general practice for one year before switching full time to emergency medicine. After 2 years of practice in Canada she moved to Australia and has been working in emergency practices in both Melbourne and Sydney for the past 4 years. Throughout her career she has experienced the highs and lows of the veterinary profession, and discussed with colleagues, students and mentees alike about some of the challenges of the profession. Ann founded Kick Ass Vets to help veterinarians tackle the non-medical aspect of the veterinary career, which comprises the most common causes for why vets leave the profession. Ann is passionate about helping veterinarians, nurses and support staff find their voice to advocate for themselves, so that each individual can find happiness and joy in this amazing profession.
