Matthijs Heijstek

“Nothing is impossible. Even the word itself says: I’m possible!”

My name is Matthijs Heijstek and I have been a Junior Communication Consultant at St. Anna Advies, since May 2018. I graduated in 2017 from the Aeres University of Applied Sciences in Dronten, with a degree in Animal Health and Management. I, further, won the Talent Award at the Dutch Pet Conference & Awards, for my research focusing on the performance of the average veterinary practice.

During my studies, it was apparent that the way the veterinary sector works, especially regarding the way knowledge is shared, suits me. I have gained a lot of practical experience during my internships and research period. I can now apply my knowledge and experience to veterinary practices from three different dimensions, from the employee, the management and from an external veterinary consultancy perspective.

Outside of work I like to play football and if weather permits I also enjoy a run from time to time. Spending time with family and friends always helps me to wind down.
