Welcome to part II of our two-part deep dive interview with Dr. Devin Nobert.
If you haven’t listened to part I of the interview we highly recommend listening to that episode before completing this one, as it will provide context for the remainder of our conversation here.
In Part II, our conversation moves more towards Devin’s healing process through the many challenges he has faced. We also touch on the mental attitude required to handle adversity, to overcome obstacles, and to use vulnerability and truth to move through the many emotions faced when going to tough battles in life.
Devin’s story is a truly amazing one and we’re incredibly grateful for having him share his story with the Veterinary Project Community.
Dr. Devin Nobert was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta. He obtained a B.A. in Psychology at the University of Calgary before deciding to shift course and pursue a career in Veterinary Medicine.
In 2004 he moved to Saskatoon with his high school sweet heart wife, a 1 year old daughter and a Bichon Shih-Tzu in tow and started vet school at the WCVM. After a major road bump during second year vet school forced him to put his schooling on hold for a full year, he returned to his studies and graduated with a DVM in 2009.
Devin joined the Fish Creek 24 Emergency Pet Hospital family early on as a student in 2006. He was hired as an emergency vet right after graduation in 2009. He has continued to face multiple health related “road bumps” but he has also managed to become both a partner and manager at this exceptionally busy and successful emergency hospital as well as their sister clinic, Little Creek Vet Clinic.
He currently practices primary vet medicine part-time at Little Creek. Outside of vet medicine he is a full time dad to 3 kids, including 2 teenagers. And finally, he is a pinball wizard, golf junkie and music fanatic, and loves to combine either of these passions with travel!
