The directors of IRT are delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Amy Little as our Global Veterinary Advisor working from the Melbourne Airport office.

Amy graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science with First Class Honours in 2005. Following a brief stint in equine referral practice, she moved to the Australian government's Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.

Over 12 years, Amy had several veterinary roles within the Australian Department and Water Resources, primarily dealing with the import and export of live animals and their reproductive material - most recently her role was Director - Horses, Livestock & Birds Program, Animal & Biological Import Assessments Branch.

Amy was also the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) National Focal Point for Animal Welfare for three years - a subject she remains passionate about.

Having a lifelong passion for horses (having first sat on a pony as a 4yo) Amy has competed on her, now retired, warmblood gelding to Medium Level dressage and looks forward to getting out and about to support IRT clients in their equestrian, breeding and racing pursuits - and hopefully spend some more time in the saddle herself.

IRT Managing Director Chris Burke commented "IRT greatly looks forward to adding Dr Little's veterinary, government and regulatory experience to assist with our on going biosecurity compliance and in doing so complement the high quality of service we can provide to our clients"

We hope you join with us in welcoming Amy aboard.
