Unlike a lot of vets, I didn’t grow up knowing I wanted to be a vet and only realised it was the career for me until much later. I grew up in Minnesota in America and worked two jobs growing up: on a farm and in a little privately owned coffee shop. While the farm taught me a lot about the importance of hard work, I will never forget how much I loved getting to know all the regulars at the coffee shop. I graduated from high school and needed to quit these jobs to start my first degree, but never forgot what they taught me.

I moved to Wisconsin to study neurobiology at UW Madison. It was here I met my now husband and our beloved moggie, Lupita, which means little wolf. I graduated there with a first then we three moved to Los Angeles where I worked in a lab studying children’s leukaemia. The work here was so important but I felt very disconnected to the patients I was helping. I thought back to the coffee shop where I got to know everyone that came in and I thought of how much I loved my little wolf. I also thought about how I needed to see the effects my hard work was helping my patients. I decided then I would become a vet.

We three then moved to Edinburgh where I studied at the beautiful Dick Vet. I was in one of the last classes to get to go through Summerhall, and one of the first classes to get to go to the new campus in Roslin. I qualified in 2013 and bought this Corstorphine branch in late 2017. So far, I’m so happy to be here. As I had hoped when going to vet school, my favourite part of being in general practice is meeting new clients and their pets, and I so look forward to getting to know everyone that comes into my room.  I have never worked anywhere with such a kind community and feel lucky everyday by how lovely all of our clients are.

        I have a special interest in the heart and cardiovascular system and am working toward a certificate in small animal cardiology.  Outside of work I’m mad about cycling, books, flowers, camping and plants.  Unfortunately, my little wolf couldn’t live forever, but she has since been succeeded by the current moggie queen of my world, Phoebe.

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 people have been so welcoming and supportive 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, anaesthesia and analgesia, but I like being a GP as well. In fact, I recently obtained a post graduate certification in small animal medicine.
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 in their wellbeing, that’s why I think it’s “special”.
In my free time I like seeing friends and family, I do enjoy travelling and spending time in nature and expressing my creativity with DIY projects. Most of all, I love my two cats Meeko and Freya, who I spoil as much as possible (and they make sure to take full advantage of it).

I have been lucky enough to have been part of the Vets for Pets Corstorphine team since 2020. In the past I have worked as a VCA, vet nurse, and believe it or not, I also have a degree in costume design. I decided to leave the entertainment industry to pursue my dream of becoming a veterinarian, receiving my BSc with a specialist in health and disease from the University of Toronto and my BVM&S from the R(D)SVS in Edinburgh.

I have a keen interest surgery and am in the midst of completing additional training for a certificate in soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery. I also have love for exotics and small furries. When I’m not working on building my veterinary skills you can find me out for a jog with the fam or lazing about with my tuxedo cat Tag.

Hello, I’m Rory. I first came to Corstorphine in 2019 as a vet student. Everyone was so lovely and supportive that I decided to do the majority of my University placements here, before joining the team as a fully qualified vet in July 2021!

Growing up in Edinburgh, I didn’t have any pets of my own and didn’t get to spend much time with animals. Due to this, I started volunteering at the city farm and local animal sanctuaries from a young age. This peaked my interest in caring for animals and more specifically for veterinary medicine. Since then I have found my main interests lie in small animal practice. I’m interested in all aspects of GP vet life and very much enjoy meeting all our feline, canine and other small furry patients!

Last year I finally brought home my very own pet, my lovely British Shorthair cat, Angus. Outside of work I enjoy running, cooking and making the most of everything Edinburgh has to offer.

I’m so proud to work for the Corstorphine team and to keep up the excellent standard of care we have, for all our lovely patients.

Hello, I’m Anna.
I joined the team at Corstorphine in March 2022 and I have been enjoying the lovely team and high standard medical care I found here ever since.
I graduated from the University of Barcelona in 2011 and moved to the UK shorty after. After a few months of volunteering at the PDSA in Edinburgh I moved to England for a couple of years to work in first opinion there. I found myself missing Scotland so I finally came back to stay! I have since married and started my own family, now completed with Django the cat and my young son.
I love all aspects of first opinion veterinary medicine and particularly enjoy internal medicine, and cats most of all! I have, in fact, just started to develop my skills further by working on a Feline Medicine post graduate certification.
I am looking forward to meeting you and your pets.

Hi, I'm Judith! Having qualified from RVC in 2017, I have had a number of jobs in various parts of the UK ranging from small animal practice to exporting animal products to the EU- but I have always made my way back to Edinburgh and small animals in the end!

Originally I wanted to go down the equine route as I worked as a riding instructor previously, but instead I ended up in small animal practice and get to enjoy horses outside of work (and get to stay dry indoors!). I am owned by a warmblood gelding called Red who is equal parts grumpy old man and 4 year old child- we seem to complement each other.

As a general practice vet with an interest in behaviour, I get a sense of achievement if I am able to "befriend" and reduce the stress of animals (especially cats) that are nervous or not terribly impressed about coming to the vets.

Hi, I’m Charley and I have just hit my 5 year anniversary at Vets4Pets Corstorphine!
In this time you may have seen me as receptionist, VCA, Practice Manager and now back to VCA. Hopefully heading to Veterinary Student Nurse this September!
I previously worked for the SSPCA as an Animal Care Assistant and I spent 4 years working with Horses before that.
The care of animals is definitely my passion in life and I am so happy to continue it here with the best team ever.
In my spare time I love going on walks, painting and spending time with the lovely people in my life.

"Hi, I’m Stacey the Head Registered Veterinary Nurse here at Corstorphine Vets for Pets! I am originally from Sunny Blackpool and qualified as a veterinary nurse in January 2017. Shortly after qualifying I headed “Down Under” and worked as a veterinary nurse in Australia where I came across a variety of interesting cases and patients. I then volunteered in Southeast Asia and finally came back to the UK, where I worked in a variety of clinics- so have seen quite varied cases as well as different cultural approaches to veterinary care! I finally found my way up to Scotland, where I was initially only meant to locum (in 2018!), but fell so in love with our clinic, Edinburgh and Corstorphine that I’ve decided to make Scotland my home. Since Joining the Corstorphine team I have achieved the ISFM certificate in feline nursing as well as a nurse merit award in anaesthesia and emergency and critical care.

I have had several different careers but feel I have finally found my vocation in life. I love that every day as a vet nurse is different! I also am extremely grateful for getting to help all our lovely patients. You may hear me singing to our patients from time to time as I feel this helps to calm them down-although the rest of the team are not quite as appreciative.

I have my own anxious but awesome rescue dog named Bandit and couldn’t imagine life without him. He can be a very vocal guy and doesn’t like being approached by strangers. I feel having my own nervous dog has helped me have a greater understanding about behaviour and anxiety in our patients. In my spare time I enjoy going for hikes in the Pentlands with Bandit and then coming home to snuggle on the sofa with him."

Hi, I’m Susanne. I joined Vets for Pets Corstorphine to train as a Nurse in February 2018 and haven’t left yet! I’ve since worked my way up to senior registered veterinary nurse, a title of which I am very proud. I adore the amazing team here in Corstorphine . I have recently successfully completed my Nurse Merit Award in anaesthesia and emergency and critical care. I love all aspects of my job especially consulting and meeting all our lovely owners. Additionally, I love mentoring nursing students so you’ll always find me teaching!

Growing up I always knew I wanted to help people AND animals. I studied for my degree in human nursing where I worked for 20 plus years but eventually realised in my 40s my real calling was helping animals. I then decided to retrain as an animal nurse.

I have two adorable rescue dogs Charlie and Daisy- though I’m always bringing home animals that need a bit of fostering. In my spare time, I love to spend time with my family, baking, wild water swimming and walking the dogs.

Hi, I’m Nina. I joined the Corstorphine team in January 2021 initially as a Student Veterinary Nurse. Since then, I qualified from Edinburgh Napier in July 2023 and have been working as a Registered Veterinary Nurse. I particularly enjoy the inpatient and consulting role within veterinary nursing, and love to nurse our small mammal exotic patients.

I have a tiny dog named Bea who I would describe as a speedy couch potato – she loves to sleep but also likes to run around and go on adventures! As well as spending time with Bea, I like to read, bake, and play the harp in my spare time.

Hi! My name is Afton and I joined the Corstorphine team in December 2018 as Client Care Advisor. From here, I moved through the ranks as first a veterinary care assistant, then a student veterinary nurse and now I’m a fully qualified registered veterinary nurse!
I have always been an avid animal lover from a very young age and grew up with both dogs and hamsters as well as the more unusual hawks, bearded dragons and even a piranha!! However when I turned 18 I bought my very first pet in my name, my little bunny Fiver from Corstorphine, where I had his health check and vaccs. Little did I know I would be working for this dedicated team 6 years later!!
In my spare time I am an avid bookworm, but I mostly spend my spare time hanging out with my cats Toothless and Newt, my snake Morpheus, and my dog Delphi!

I’ve always had a love for animals which started with a fascination for catching ladybugs in my garden and then accidentally letting them loose in the house.

I went on to get my BSc in Animal Biology and always wanted to find a job where I could help in some way with animals and I love being able to do so at the vets! Meeting everyone’s beloved pets is the highlight of my day.

The only pet I have space for in my tiny home right now is my corn snake but have plans to expand the family with a furry creature ASAP.

Working front of house at Vets4Pets is great as I get to meet clients with their adorable pets and hear all of their stories.
