  • Is your veterinary career negatively affecting your personal life or vice versa?

  • Are you hesitant to recommend the veterinary profession to friends or family who want to be veterinary professionals?

  • Do you put your family, clients, patients, and friends first and neglect yourself?

  • Do you have a difficult time letting go of past mistakes, failures, and/or unfavorable case outcomes?

  • Are you dissatisfied with your choice to become a veterinarian or veterinary professional?

  • Do you sometimes feel that you aren't good enough to perform your job well?

  • Are you interested in taking a journey of self-mastery and personal growth with a desire to reach your full potential?

  • Do you feel that there has to be more to life than what you are currently experiencing?

  • Do you think you work with ungrateful coworkers, work for ungrateful leaders, and/or serve ungrateful clients?

  • Are you easily irritated or frustrated by difficult coworkers, disgruntled clients, aggressive/fractious patients, your boss, or clients who can't afford veterinary care?

Your Question: 

Soooo... I related to most if not ALL of those. Should I be concerned?

Our Answer: 

No! You shouldn't be concerned, but you should probably sign up for GMU


We suggest that you TAKE MASSIVE ACTION for your best life!


THAT's why we're here! 


We've got your back!


Burnout and compassion fatigue won't stand a chance!

We help veterinary professionals and organizations ENJOY vet med instead of ENDURING it!

What's more important than living a life of fulfillment and purpose?


What's more important than living a life of your own design?

It is our core belief and value at Get MotiVETed that NOTHING is more important than you living your best, purpose-filled, fulfilling, energized life! 

Nothing is more important than you living intentionally and creating a life of your own design!

Yet, many veterinary professionals are: 

❌ Not fulfilled 

❌ Questioning their purpose and decision to be in the profession 

❌ Living a life that is unintentionally DOMINATED by vet med and life challenges

❌ Feeling stuck - some are still in the profession so they can pay off their student loans so that they can leave the profession!


If any of those ring a bell, then we strongly suggest you enroll in GMU... you won't be disappointed, and you have NOTHING to lose!

Your clients, patients, family, friends, and team members deserve to experience the best version of yourself! 

Reach your full potential by enrolling in GMU!

You Won't Be Disappointed!

Dr. Quincy H.

As the co-founder of Get MotiVETed and co-creator of GMU, I would be remiss to not vouch for my own creation. The principles found within the curriculum are legit. I've used them over the past 2.5 years, and they have completely revolutionized the life of me and my family. I'm not saying you will get benefits just by enrolling, but if you take the information seriously, it's IMPOSSIBLE that you not see results, hence my willingness to gladly give any hospital or individual their money back! I truly hope you give it a shot! I also hope you live a life of your own design for the rest of your living days! It's possible!

I was blown away...

R. Minch

I was blown away during Dr. Hawley's presentation about GetMotiVETed! because his passion for other people really shone through. Wellness in the veterinary community is constantly swept under the rug; Dr. Hawley's insistence on its importance is a message that more people in veterinary medicine need to hear because it is critical to the future of the profession. Most of all, I was impressed how Dr. Hawley took the time to encourage me and answer my specific questions after the presentation. His advice was a world of help as I started veterinary school!

I just wanted to reach out and thank you...

A. Pintado

"... I just wanted to reach out and thank you both personally for the words and knowledge you both shared. I have never been one to put my mental health first, which to no surprise is why I always get yelled at by my friends and family for not taking care of myself, but when you guys touched on issues of anxiety and depression and addiction, I realized how important your own well-being can be. You both hit key points that many people face in life and being a current college student, a lot of it I was able to relate back to myself. Your presentation made me more motivated to better myself, not only in my profession as a future vet but also throughout life. Your message was truly inspiring and sharing your personal experiences made it much more humbling for me. So again I'd just like to thank you for your words and with time, I hope to improve my overall well-being and continue this journey we call life."

Practice manager's perspective...

Jaye O.

Dr. Quincy Hawley and Renee's passion to help the veterinary industry fight Compassion Fatigue and Burnout are truly evident when they speak. I had the opportunity to attend a GetMotiveted CE and I can honestly say that I wish seminars such as this one were available when I was a hospital manager. Listening to Dr. Hawley and Renee helped me realize that Burnout and Compassion Fatigue are not isolated to just the doctor, but that the entire support staff can suffer from it. After over 10 years in the veterinary industry with over 4 of them as a Manager of a hospital I can truly attest to how beneficial it is to have not just the doctor but the entire team have a positive outlook and have ways to help fight the burnout that can be felt from the day to day stresses that occur in the field. The steps they present, not only help me when I am struggling professionally, I have also found them useful when struggling personally. I highly encourage not just hospital leaders and doctors to attend, but the entire team. You will not only get beneficial information but it is an awesome team building opportunity.

Happy New Year!

Tayna C.

I took one of your lectures last year at the APVMA Regional Symposium at Delaware Valley University, and spoke with you afterwards. I also wanted to tell you how important your lecture has been to me. as I was working on my end of the year reflection I thought about this and remembered your lecture “7 Secrets to Wellness for the Veterinary Profession”... The year 2018 was full of growth for me in the individual and professional aspect. I gained a better perspective of where I want to take my veterinary career in the future. What you do is an example for me that the possibilities within the veterinary profession are endless if you keep an open mind and don’t settle for less. I read your interview on financialwellnessdvm.com and found that it contained a lot of what I needed to hear. Needless to say, it was what I needed to find that little push of inspiration to start my semester. Thank you for your work! Hope 2019 is full of blessings to you and your family.

Vet student Perspective

Kristal S. - Second Year, Purdue CVM

Dr Hawley and Renee came to Purdue University to speak to the vet school. They spoke about how to end bad days and have a more positive outlook on life and how to turn our failures into success. This was a very motivating and powerful conversation. It gave me hope that I can make it through not only veterinary school, but through whatever I do in life. I've met Dr. Hawley prior to him coming to Purdue and heard him speak at another seminar. He told me about using my 24 hours wisely and that stuck with me to this day. Now thanks to him, I've made life changing decisions to increase my personal growth. For instance, I started getting up at 5 am to go to the gym instead of waiting in the afternoon after class and I've also started meal prepping on Sundays. Now I have more time to study after class without interruptions. It's been very efficient and I've made a lot of progress. I am very grateful for the information that they shared with us and for the difference it has made in my life.

Pre-vet student perspective

A. Illescas

"The Pre-Vet Club at Chico State was extremely pleased having Dr. Hawley come speak at our campus. Not only did the pre-vet club join in on his presentation but also the pre-med club. The members enjoyed listening to the important message of mental wellness and how to take control of our lives. He was truly inspirational and many members have communicated already making changes towards a better/brighter future. It was extremely helpful to know that we are not alone and to become aware of the saddening statistics that many turn a blind eye to. The positive message has definitely stuck with us and we are already making plans to have Dr. Hawley back during our Spring semester!"

Mental Health Professional Perspective...

L. Nan, PhD Psychologist - Purdue CVM

We were excited to have Dr. Hawley and Renee present to our students, and, respectively faculty and staff, at Purdue College of Veterinary Medicine. They were so relatable, connecting very easily to the audience with their warm and genuine demeanor. Their presentations were infused with impactful stories, and many useful tools for coping and self-care that were very inspiring and motivating. It was great to see many students seek Dr. Hawley and Renee after the presentations for advice and guidance. They responded to each student with so much openness and warmth. The veterinary profession is fortunate to have initiatives and work such as Dr. Hawley’s and Renee’s available to support wellbeing not only for each individual but at systemic level as well. They can truly inspire much needed professional cultural change!

Vet Student perspective

Rowan S. - CSU-CVM

Dr Hawley came to our school and gave a presentation on his 7 secrets to wellbeing, as well as hosting a wellbeing seminar with our VBMA club, and they were both phenomenal. Dr Hawley is inspiring and understands the struggles of the veterinary profession in a way other motivational speakers do not. He was supportive and open in our small, group discussions, and focused on identifying areas of weakness and encouraged us to approach them with solution mindsets. I would love to work with Dr Hawley again, and highly recommend him to other students and veterinarians currently in practice.

Veterinarian's perspective

Dr. Marie B. - DVM, Chief of Staff

I went into this seminar feeling severely anxious, stressed and burned out from my job with compassion fatigue nipping at my heels. As a busy Chief of Staff for a very large veterinary corporation, these things were directly affecting my ability to perform my duties to the fullest. I lacked the skills and knowledge to recover from my everyday work life. This seminar not only gave me SO many tools, resources and the personal insight needed to start my journey into my own health and wellness but, more importantly, the realization that I wasn't alone and there was hope to recover enough to rejoin the field I loved and respected. I want to thank Renee Machel and Dr. Quincy Hawley for bringing their experiences, skills, and knowledge to the veterinary community. If you are feeling any of the above emotions like I was, do yourselves a favor and sign up for a seminar. You won't regret it.
