Feedback from clients and audience members:

“Wow! Wow! Wow! That’s all I can say. Deeply moving and inspirational. You absolutely saved a life that day because we NEVER know what a person is going through. Thank you for being a beacon of light to a person who has lost hope. Thank you for being so vulnerable and sharing about your own story. Not easy. I am so full of gratitude this week about all you are doing. Never stop.” – Senior Intelligence Officer, Defense Intelligence Agency

“I cannot begin to thank you enough for the incredible morning we got to spend with you.  The message was so powerful and the buzz and conversation was still flying high over our lunch 1 1/2 hours later.  Everyone was moved and there is a clamor to take your message to more of our colleagues.  And, yes, I was 1 of the 6 [who struggle with suicide] in our room today.  I am great now, but several years ago I was in a position where I felt entirely helpless and hopeless with my practice and therefore my life.  I felt overwhelmed and that I had no way out of working 80-100 hour weeks and being sucked dry by my clients.  I wanted nothing more than to spend time with my family, but my fatigue and short tempered stress did nothing but alienate them despite their attempts to be supportive.  I honestly don’t know how I got through that period of time, because I know a large part of me did not want to stay in that hole and I truly didn’t think there was a way out.  I write this with a feeling of shame and embarrassment that I could not be as powerful and strong as the world thought I was.  It was only your talk today Dr. Andrews that could make me write this now. Thank you so much.  I suspect more of my colleagues today may have been in the same spot I was in at some point in their career, and if they haven’t been, I have no doubt that they know someone who has.  Your message touched us all and we realize we have a platform to help make a difference and we want to do that. So, out I come to you and to let you know that you made a huge impact today and I hope it will allow us to help others in the future.” – Chief Executive Officer, Large Veterinary Medicine Organization

“Relatable, poignant, connected to his audience. What an impressive feat to go through his experiences and find a way to bring it from darkness to the light. He needs to be your speaker of the year for wellness and self-care.” – Audience Survey Respondent, North American Veterinary Community VMX Congress 2018

“I just wanted to say thank you for your heart-felt, honest, and much-needed presentation you gave to all of us at VMG Congress last Saturday.  I was one of the people out in the audience that was not ashamed to be openly crying during your presentation that day. I had suicidal thoughts as a much younger person, well before I became a veterinarian. I just wanted to let you know that your presentation really touched me.” – Senior Executive, Major Veterinary Community Organization
