Hi everybody! My name is Marieke Drieling and I graduated in 2012 as a veterinarian assistant at the Clusius College in Alkmaar. I live in Amsterdam together with a roommate. After my studies I worked as a veterinarian assistant for a while, but my plan was to become a physiotherapist for animals. So I tried to study physiotherapy, but unfortunately I didn’t succeed in finishing it. However, I am still interested in this field, which comes in handy at Dierenkliniek Vondelpark.

After studying physiotherapy I travelled through Australia and New Zealand for 2 years and worked a lot in the hospitality industry, which was also my last job. I found out that my heart really lies in working with animals so I am very happy to have this opportunity again.

Hopefully I will meet you soon!
