Dr. Renée Chalmers Hoynck van Papendrecht

WSAVA Executive Board Member



Veterinary Clinic Nieuw Den Helder

Texelstroomlaan 82 a,

1784 ED Den Helder,

The Netherlands


The co-owner of a small animal practice in Holland, Renee Chalmers is known to many of us through her role as Assembly Representative for the Netherlands Association for Companion Animal Medicine (NACAM). On the Executive Board, she will support Siraya Chunekamrai, Honorary Secretary.


She says: “Many of the issues we face, One Health for example, can’t be solved locally. We must work together to tackle them globally and this is where the WSAVA plays a vital role. We offer a unique global forum for practitioners, enabling us to share knowledge and best practice. We must continue to enhance veterinary CE and show strong leadership in important areas such as One Health, antibiotic resistance and zoonosis.


As a working veterinarian and as a woman, I bring practical experience to the Executive Board. I’m really looking forward to working with an inspiring team to help enhance veterinary knowledge and animal welfare across the globe.”
