OWNER / DIRECTOR

BVSc (Hons)

Dr Jeannet Kessels is a creative entrepreneur, mother of four and an exceptional businesswoman.

She graduated from UQ with First Class Honours in 1986 and enjoyed her 30 year veterinary career immensely.

Jeannet’s passion for developing her staff was a predominant factor in the decision to retire from clinical work in 2018. She now has more time to focus on ‘big picture’ strategies and for mentoring the GSV team from behind the scenes; her forward-thinking and strong leadership has created a culture that promotes individual sustainability and professional satisfaction.

Over the years, Jeannet’s entrepreneurial mind has led to the creation of Groodles Australia, an incredible community enterprise which has raised over $550,000 to charity so far!.

She is co-founder and Chair of Vets for Climate Action which now comprises 1500 members. As a voice for all animals, VfCA’s strategy is three-fold:

To reduce emissions across the animal care sector.

To exercise our democratic power for climate action.

To inspire all who love, work with and need animals to advocate for and take climate action.
