Meet the team
Hello! I am Margherita and I‘ve permanently joined Corstorphine’s team since September 2017. I had been here few months before as a locum vet, when I had just moved from Italy, but all the people have been so welcoming and supportive to me that I felt I was in the right place at the right moment. Due to that, I decided to start a new chapter of career and life here in Edinburgh. I graduated in 2015 and since then I have practiced with small animals, who I really love.
My major interests are internal medicine, anesthesia and analgesia, but I like being a GP as well. The thing I prefer the most about my job is being part of pets’ life and be there when they really need. I always try to help them and owners as best as I can and I feel that my role can have a very important impact on their quality of life, that’s why I think it’s “special”.
When I have some free time I like spending it with friends and family, I do enjoy travelling and spend time in nature and expressing my creativity with DIY projects. I like baking and cooking, but most of all I love my pets (you can see the last member of the crew in the picture).
Hello there, I am one of the most recent additions to the Corstorphine Vets4Pets family! I have worked with Vets4Pets as a veterinary care assistant, and to complete clinical placement during my time as a vet student. So when I graduated from the University of Edinburgh this year, I was delighted to accept a job offer as a veterinary surgeon where I knew I’d be working with such a dedicated and hard working team.
Animals have always been a passion of mine, and before before I started on the veterinary path, I achieved a Bachelor’s degree in Zoology from Trinity College Dublin. I have always had a special interest in exotic animals, one of my favourites are Leopard geckos!
Currently in my flat in Edinburgh I have 3 goldfish named Toe, Artemis and Teddy. I also rarely have a day off where I’m not out walking dogs on Blackford Hill or exploring the Pentlands.
I’m already loving my new job, and I hope over the next few years I can further develop my emergency critical care and my soft tissue surgery skills as I think these areas are the most exciting in veterinary medicine! I look forward to meeting you, and all of your pets!
After working in the banking industry for nearing 3 years I decided to pursue my dream job as a veterinary nurse. This lead me to doing a lot of weekend work experience at Vets 4 Pets Corstorphine and I joined the team in summer 2017 when an opportunity arrived to become a care assistant within the practice.
I have an interest in small exotics and share my house with my own pets Gizmo the Russian Dwarf hamster, Tifa the Gerbil and Pumpkin and Frankie my rabbits.
My name is Charley and I am brand new to the Corstorphine team. I worked for 5 years as a groom in west Lothian before moving onto the RSPCA as an animal care assistant. I have always loved animals and hope to become a vet nurse one day. I enjoy cups of tea and squishy dogs. I own a Rottweiler-cross called Diesel who I rescued- he is a big goofball!
Hi! My name is Ammie, I’m the newest face at the reception desk. I worked for a year on the shop floor at Pets at Home and prior to that I completed my national certificate in animal care. I’ve always loved animals and knew from a very young age that when I got older working with animals was exactly what I wanted to do. I have my own little rescue guinea pig called chomp who I adopted around Christmas time. When I have some spare time you’ll more than likely find me curled up on the couch in my pyjamas watching tv.
