Here's the BOTTOM LINE...

In life and in vet med... 

Sometimes you are going to face challenging days and sometimes, you will have really awesome days. 

The big "secret" to having a life of wellbeing at home and at work is to know... "How to Make the Good Days Better and the Bad Days Good!"


You may not know where to go to find veterinary specific wellbeing info, and you may not where to start and how to succeed...

we get it...

❌ You are busy all day putting out personal and professional fires

❌ Perhaps you've tried and failed before and you don't want to go through that again

❌ Perhaps you haven't figured out  how to manage your wellbeing and are feeling too burntout to do more work

❌ You get caught up in doing things that you are familiar with, and love to do, like treating the patients. 

Most importantly, many veterinary professionals don't have an easy, convenient, or affordable solution for addressing the personal and professional wellbeing challenges of vet med and life. 

This is EXACTLY why we created Get MotiVETed University! 

✅ Effective:Happy you will have greater productivity, provide more quality service, make fewer mistakes, and call-off less!

✅ Convenient:  It's like having YouTube, Amazon's Audible/Kindle, or Netflix that's veterinary specific and focused around wellbeing!

Simple: User Friendly online modules are easy to navigate, lectures can even be listened to on-the-go, templates and content are downloadable and printable. 

Affordable: Our yearly program will cost you less than your monthly cellphone bill! You pay one low price, one time, and you will have access to all of GMU for the year!

"It's like being in school again. The only difference is that it's actually FUN, you can do it at your own pace, on your own time, in your own home, and you can rewind it over and over again if you want! AND the information helps you live an awesome life!" 

- Dr. Quincy Hawley

GMU will help you discover how to thrive despite the tough stuff life and vet med can bring! 

"Sounds good... But umm... How exactly will GMU be any different than the other resources out there?"

What Members of the Veterinary Community Have to Say About Us!


Dr. C. Thomas

"I recently had the honor to hear Ms. Renee Machel and Dr. Quincy Hawley speak this past weekend. After her talk, I found myself recalling her motivating and enlightening words as I tried to slow down the haste in my own life. Torn between having a healthy Work-Life-Balance, I was able to hone-in on the insight spoken: be mindful.... take a deep breath... and focus. I did just that. I had no idea that their skill set would impact me mentally and emotionally in such a profound way; but I’m so thankful I was there to receive it."

Administrator, Veterinarian

S. Salisbury, DVM, MS, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs

“Thank you very much for your presentations to the students in Current Issues in Veterinary Medicine and to faculty and staff at lunch. You showed how important wellness is and that it is possible to have a veterinary career and healthy lifestyle! Thank you so much. We appreciate your willingness to make the time to visit Purdue.”


Dr. Christy Skoglund

"Dr. Hawley and Renee were awesome in their presentation to us. I learned so much and got inspired to change my ways. Would definitely recommend to any veterinary (or non-veterinary) professional. Grateful that they are helping our community - thank you! I look forward to practicing what you taught us ❤️"

D.V.M. Student

R. Minch, First Year Veterinary Student, NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine

“I was blown away during Dr. Hawley's presentation about Get MotiVETed! 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!”

DVM Student

Elizabeth C. , Texas A&M VBMA President

“Dr. Hawley had the unlucky speaking time of 10 am on a Saturday, but he completely captivated everybody in the room. He was very positive, energetic, and gave an easy to follow message with some key points to take. His talk wasn't overwhelming with statistics and information. He made it very practical by breaking things down and telling stories about himself and his colleagues. I definitely recommend for an upbeat, positive experience.”

Mental Health Professional

Dr. Nan, Ph.D., HSPP, Psychologist

“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!”

D.V.M. Student

Cassie Atkinson , DVM Student, University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine

“Dr. Hawley came to our school to give a presentation about well-being in the veterinary profession. I loved his eagerness and enthusiasm and you could tell that it was contagious to everyone that attended the talk. He really showed us that well-being can easily be achieved as long as the effort is put forth. I plan to read his book that he had handed out to some of the students and cant wait to see what great advice I get out of it. I hope to hear him speak again in my future.”

D.V.M. Student

Alexa S., DVM student, Class of 2021, Colorado State University

“Dr. Hawley came to speak with some of the DVM students at Colorado State University and held small workshops where we discussed our own struggles with wellbeing and how to improve our industry as a whole. Wellbeing is very important in our profession and something that is not discussed often. It was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend hearing Dr. Hawley speak and attending a workshop with him.”
