The team behind Den Hoek - Aleid Hillebrand
In this section, each month we ask one of our team members a series of questions so that you can get to know us a little better.
After Kimberley it is now the turn of a vet who treats our small pets. She is also the author of the book “Get to know your dog, cat or rabbit with the Five Elements”
– How long have you been working for Den Hoek and how did you end up here?
I have been working at Den Hoek since the beginning of 2018. After being ill for a long time myself, I initially came to Den Hoek with my previous (then very old) dogs after several people had told me that I had to go here.
I was very impressed and wondered how it all worked. I wanted to know more about that so I started doing the Lecher course in 2014, the connection course in 2015 and then the veterinary acupuncture.
– What do you like most about your job?
That I really work for the animals and collaborate with the animals. They give me their confidence that I can help them.
– What is the most important thing you have learned during your work at Den Hoek?
How insanely fascinating the cosmos and energies work.
– What is the nicest or most special thing you have experienced during your work?
Sometimes people come for the first consultation and say that I am their last hope because otherwise the animal has to be put to sleep. It can be very emotional. Fortunately, there is often enough a happy ending!!
– What do you like least about your job?
Measuring requires a lot of energy. I have to be careful that it doesn’t cost me too much of my own energy.
– How would you describe the Den Hoek team?
A fun, enthusiastic, hard-working team.
– Do you have (domestic) animals yourself?
Yes, two dogs. Rakker, a stubborn Boomer with a beautiful bushy tail. And Wagtail, a princess on the pea. Both came my way.
– Coffee or tea break?
– What can we wake you up for?
For nothing, my sleep is sacred to me. Well, go ahead then, for an animal or person in need.
– What do you like to do in your spare time?
Then I often still work with TCM (Traditional Chinese medicine). But walking the dogs, doing chores around the house or just doing nothing at all is also nice!
