A few of our conference speakers shared what they do outside their veterinary practices

From the kitchen to the farm to the ice rink to the streets, Fetch faculty Heather Kvitko-White, DVM, DACVIM; Kwane Stewart, DVM; Erik Zager, DVM, DACVECC; and Bash Halow, LVT, CVPM recently shared their interests and activities with After Hours™, a Medical World News® program that takes viewers beyond the traditional veterinary space and outside the industry to showcase the hobbies and passions of animal care professionals.

Kvitko-White, founder and president of Missouri-based KW Veterinary Consulting, sat down with dvm360® to discuss her life as a “rink rat.” Growing up with a love of skating, Kvitko-White carried that passion with her into her adult life. In addition to skating, she also began playing ice hockey with fellow veterinary classmates. These days, she continues to enjoy skating, and play ice hockey, with the hope that her love for the ice will rub off on her children.

Now, more than 5 years later, Stewart has launched Project Street Vet and continues to help those in need.
