Dr Fiona Boland
Veterinarian/Owner

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 one 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…

Dr Karin Vet
Dr Karin Dreyer
Veterinarian

Karin’s interest 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, general clinics (pets and farm animals),  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 to the everyday cat, dog or horse.

Since her move to WA, Karin continues to maintain involvement in education in both professional development and in tutoring vocational students in various animal science courses.

Karin joined the Marmion Vet Family in 2012 and she enjoys all aspects of small animal medicine, and the challenge of seeing the unexpected.

Dr Jen Bytheway
Veterinarian

Jennifer was born and grew up in Scotland. She spent Sunday’s watching the iconic “All Creatures Great and Small” and knew that’s how she wanted to spend her life.

Jennifer attended Glasgow University and after graduation spent 8 years working on dairy farms and attending the occasional race horse.
Jennifer migrated to Australia and worked in small animal practice in Sydney before moving to Perth.

Here in Perth, she has worked in small animal and emergency practices. She is currently housing 2 human children, 2 dogs; a rather bossy elderly poodle and a very shy but glamorous rescued Saluki.

She also has a handful (5) of cats that have been acquired during my work. So having treated prime bulls of more than a tonne to a tiny green tree frog, Jennifer has fulfilled her youthful dreams. She is interested in all types of medicine, especially emergency and internal medicine, and has a soft spot for our feline friends 😻

Veronica Mark
Registered Veterinary Nurse

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 Pitcher
Registered Veterinary Nurse

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.

Jess Scott
Registered Veterinary Nurse

Jess started at Marmion Vet Centre in January 2020.  She qualified as a vet nurse in 2015.

Always wanting animals to live a happy and stress free life, Jess has a special interest in animal behavior.  

Jess lives with one gorgeous and psoiled girl, Percy )Persephone) and one lovely and charming husband, Bradley.

Lisa Yates
Vet Student and Receptionist

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 Wilson
CEO of odd jobs, general maintenance, and belly rubs

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 sometimes helps with reception work and home visits. He also steps in 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.

When Dr Fiona comes home, Stu makes sure there’s supper on the table.  Stu is not foolish.
