Corina Versteegh

I’m Corina, one of the full time veterinary surgeons at Avenue Road Vets.

I completed my veterinary degree from University College Dublin after gaining a Bachelor of Science degree from Mount Allison University in New Brunswick, Canada. I’ve been working full time at Avenue Road Vets since July 2015; I love the combination of providing gold standard treatment to our clients, while maintaining the feeling of a small local family practice. I have a special interest in soft tissue surgery and hope to complete further certification in this area.

In my free time I enjoy running, dancing and travelling. I look forward to meeting more of our clients – both furry and otherwise!

I recently joined the Practice after moving from Birmingham to West Sussex. I wanted more of a family feel practice as I came from a large hospital. I have a keen interest in laboratory work and am currently studying for a certificate in medicine.

I started at Avenue Road Vets after a university placement, while I was studying Veterinary Nursing. I enjoyed the hands-on experience so much, I decided to continue my training through the practice as a full time nurse and train on the job instead of university. I feel this job is so rewarding and I love dogs in particular.
