Meet the team
Hi I’m Tessa, I qualified as a vet from the R(D)SVS in 2009 and have since enjoyed working around the UK in small animal practice. Before moving back to Edinburgh in 2017, I was a clinical director of two busy veterinary hospitals in Liverpool where I also obtained a Certificate in Small Animal Medicine. I now work part-time with the fabulous Vets4Pets Straiton team whilst completing a PhD in tissue engineering at the Roslin Institute. In my spare time I enjoy long-distance trail running, cuddling my one-eyed rescue cat and slowly renovating an old cottage with my partner Martyn
Hi, I’m Conor! I joined the practice in October 2019 although I have been with Vets4Pets Perth since April 2016. I graduated from Liverpool Vet School in 2015. Along with my veterinary work in the practice I have continued my university studies, completing and MSc and PhD. I enjoy all aspects of companion animal medicine and my specific area of interest (and research) is infectious diseases - particularly those that can spread between pets and their owners (and back again!).
Hi, I’m Eva. I graduated from the Aristotle University in Thessaloniki in Greece in 2015. Driven by an interest in animal behaviour and welfare, I came to the UK in September 2016 and was awarded a MSc degree in Clinical Animal Behaviour by the University of Lincoln. Since then, I have worked in small animal practice in Greece and the South of England. I joined the Straiton Vets4Pets team in September 2019 and I am currently working towards a certificate in Feline Internal Medicine. Apart from cuddling cats, I enjoy travelling, drawing and sewing in my spare time.
Hello, I am Katia, Student veterinary Nurse at Vets4Pets Straiton. My journey with Vets 4 Pets Straiton began in February 2018 when I was doing work experience, and I was lucky enough to officially join the team in January 2019.
In my previous life I was in Business Development for one of Edinburgh’s largest universities. However, animals have always been my passion so I decided to follow my childhood dream of working and helping our furry (and scaly and feathery!) companions.
In my free time I enjoy cycling and spending time with friends, family and my precious cat!
Hi, I'm David, I'm a Student Veterinary Nurse in the Straiton team. After working for 12 years in IT and 6 years as a stay at home parent, I decided to follow my childhood dream of working with animals.
I began by doing work experience at the practice and was welcomed as part of the team from day 1. I have learned so much from working with such amazing and caring people and am looking forward to what will hopefully be a long career in the veterinary profession.
Outside of work I spend time with my family and try to find time to play my guitars (much to my children's displeasure!).
I joined Vets4Pets in March 2018, a completely new direction for me (away from Pension, Insurance, Banking and Recruitment) after I decided that I wanted to spend my working hours doing something interesting, fun and rewarding. And it is! I’m an animal lover, and my 8 year old cat Fergus is a great pal. Out of work, I enjoy boot camp (once it’s over!), socialising with family & friends, helping out my (adult) kids and travelling. I've recently joined the practice at Straiton from Fort Kinnaird and am enjoying settling in.
