Dr. Sussan E. EKejiuba

Sussan Echezona Ekejiuba, DVM, PhD

Director

Dr. Ekejiuba serves as a Director with the GHEP Board. She is a clinical trials Regulatory Specialist, Veterinary Surgeon, Public Health Pharmacologist and a community woman leader who brings to the board over 10 years’ experience of entrepreneurship, financial services management and managing programs in private sector and the community.  As a young veterinarian, and prior to immigrating to the USA, Sussan set up her first veterinary practice as well as motivated her colleagues to set up independent practices that are thriving–a feat that demonstrated her early entrepreneurial potentials. She takes a lot of pleasure in motivating young men and women to aim for the highest levels in their callings, a passion that has been recognized within her community and neighborhood. Before becoming a Veterinarian, she was, for two years, an Electrical Engineering student, but had to leave because the field of Engineering was considered a male profession. This experience has been the motivation behind her work to get girls into science and technology-oriented careers. Most recently, she has channeled that interest and motivation in promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics among minority youths especially girls both in United States and internationally. She spends many hours every week processing admission applications, reviewing admission essays, and counseling young girls and boys into science careers.
