The team at Marmion Vet Centre bring a wealth of experience to the practice and have individually obtained high standards of professional qualification.
Fiona graduated from University College of Dublin in 2013. She spent a couple of years practicing in the UK before she travelled to WA in 2015 on a working holiday visa. After meeting the amazing team and warm clients of Marmion Vet Centre, she decided to stay.
Fiona is a big believer that Rescues are the best breed. She was a regular volunteer at Shenton Park Dog Refuge until of the dogs, Banksy, claimed her as his forever human. Fiona’s compassion for animals extends beyond her career and she follows a vegan lifestyle.
Fiona passed her Veterinary Acupuncture exams in December 2018 and has enjoyed being able to provide a new skill to benefit her patients.
Outside her Veterinary work, Fiona loves SUP yoga, visiting Perth’s Animal Sanctuaries, and trying to convince Stu that they should adopt all the homeless animals on the internet…
Kate graduated from Murdoch University in 2003. In her first 10 years of practice she worked at the RSPCA in Melbourne, General practice and emergency in London,and General practice back again in Melbourne.
Kate moved back to Perth in 2012 with her young family, and has been at Marmion Vet Centre since early 2017 as the clinics main surgeon.
Karin’s interests and passion for animals stem from growing up on a farm in the South African mountains. After gaining her Veterinary Degree she worked in mixed and general clinics, caring for everyone from pets to farm animals, all while completing a Master’s in Veterinary Parasitology.
Living and working in South Africa exposed her to a vast range of experiences with patients ranging from marmoset monkeys to lions.
Since her move to WA, Karin has been working as a small animal vet, and is greatly involved in local wildlife rehabilitation and research. While spending her free time volunteering at wildlife sanctuaries, she continues her education in both professional development and in tutoring vocational students in various animal science courses.
Karin joined our Marmion Vet family in 2012 and enjoys all aspects of small animal medicine, and the challenge of seeing the unexpected.
Angela began working at Marmion Vet Centre in November 2016 as a vet nurse trainee on Saturdays while studying a Certificate IV in Vet Nursing. She is now a Registered Vet Nurse and full time asset to the team.
Angela has always loved animals and shares her home with a tantrum throwing 11-year-old Maltese x Shitzhu named Boo, and an adopted Swiss Sheppard named Kaos. Although Boo is in charge, Kaos is determined to make sure each butterfly that enters the yard is to be chased.
Veronica has been at Marmion Vet Centre since December 2017. Having always had a passion for animals, Veronica finished her Cert IV in vet nursing to pursue her dream career. She lives with two beautiful toy poodles named Chicco and Rex, the two littlest dogs with biggest personalities.
Cassie graduated her veterinary nursing in 2014 and worked in an emergency vet hospital for 5 years before recently joining the team.
Cassie’s love for all animals, including the weird and wonderful, drew her to continue her passion working closely with cat and bird rescues.
Cassie resides with many pets (deep breath…) She is owned by 4 birds, 6 chickens, 2 cats and a pig. Yes you read correctly, a pig! Harley is the cutest pig we have ever met, although we may be a little bias.
Lisa is currently studing Veterinary Science and Medicine at Murdoch University. Lisa joins the Marmion Team on Saturdays to help with our reception work. Lisa’s pets are Tula, the Border Collie, and Nelson, the Kelpie. Lisa has trained her dogs to do lots of fun tricks at home.
Stu moved from Vancouver to WA in 2016. Stu is another advocate for rescue animals, and believes strongly in adopting animals in need of a loving home, rather than shopping for pets.
Stu does reception work with us on Monday mornings. He also helps out when we are super busy or when one of our regular front of house team members needs a well-earned break. Stu also does the less fun behind the scenes work, like speaking with our phone network suppliers, paying the bills and organizing building maintenance.
