The Veterinary Industry has not experienced much change for decades. Now with the onset of Veterinary Telemedicine, the scene is set for disruption.

Dr Sue has been a veterinarian in the Northern Territory for 13 years and is owner of Gove Veterinary Services in East Arnhem Land. She is the founder of i-Vet, Australia’s first pet telemedicine service designed to support regional and remote pet owners, and those people isolated by disability and illness. She is passionate about utilising technology in creative ways to provide accurate assistance to people unable to reach it. She is also a strong advocate for sole charge vets in small communities, particularly those with families, utilising telemedicine as support for work life balance.

Dr Sue has a Bachelor of Science degree, Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery and Masters Degree in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery from Murdoch University in Western Australia.
