Dr Courtney Fuller BVSc

Veterinarian (BVSc)

Originally from Ipswich, I completed my life long goal of becoming a veterinarian at UQ Gatton in 2014. I've always had a keen interest in a mixed practice and the variety and challenges it provides. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my labrador, friends and family. I also enjoy travelling, camping and horse riding when I get the chance.


Dr Alice Ehrich BVSc

Veterinarian (BVSc)

Following my graduation from UQ Gatton, I joined the SBVets team in December 2016. Growing up in the Dalby area, I love rural life and the many challenges of working with all animals, large and small. Outside of work, I enjoy water skiing, camping and relaxing with a good book. 


Dr Kelli Teveluwe BVSc

Veterinarian (BVSc)

I grew up in a small town in the Gold Coast hinterland, I enjoy being outdoors, travelling, sport and camping. After graduating from UQ Gatton in 2017 I joined the team at SB Vets so I could enjoy the diversity and challenges of mixed practice. I am looking forward to getting to know the area and the people within this community.
