Senior Veterinary Surgeon

Corina, MRCVS

Qualifying in Dublin in 2013, Corina joined our busy Vet Team in early January 2019 after spending many of her practising years gaining a huge amount of experience in both medicine and surgery in South London.

Considered one of South London’s best all round General Practitioner vets, Corina is a both an excellent advanced sonographer (ultrasound) and a highly competent soft tissue surgeon. Currently undertaking a further certificate to gain an advanced veterinary qualification specifically in surgery, Corina can often be found in theatre at both our Mayow Veterinary Surgery and our hospital in Streatham Hill.

Being an OV Practioner means Corina is available to give advice and issue passports/export certificates to small animal companions wanting to travel.


Veterinary Surgeon

Melania MRCVS

Melania joins us this Autumn after working in South London for the past 4 years. Grading in 2012 from Italy, Melania is an excellent GP Vet with a passion for being in the operating theatre. Continuing to progress to a higher level of surgery, Melania is currently studying towards a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons post-graduate certificate in Small Animal Surgery and can often be found studying to further her already excellent knowledge in this particular field. Further qualification will mean that operations some veterinary surgeries would need to refer to another clinic, Melania will be able to perform at both Mayow and Parish Lane Vets. Loving all companion animals, Melania has her very own gorgeous cat, Milu and enjoys living locally with her partner. Away from the surgeries Melania enjoys travelling, reading and skiing.


Veterinary Surgeon

Rachel MRCVS

Rachel is our very own Royal Veterinary College graduate and has been practising in London since 2016. Since joining us in 2018 Rachel has furthered her keen interest in ultrasound and developing her cardiac scanning ability, complimenting her passion for taking medicine cases forward when they require further investigation!

Having a very keen interest in client care and relationships, Rachel loves nothing more than being in consult. There’s no hiding in theatre for Rachel, however, she still very much enjoys time for routine and soft tissue surgery.

Away from the surgery Rachel’s interests are travelling around Asia, America and Africa, rock climbing and art.


Veterinary Surgeon


Elsa graduated from Liverpool Vet School in 2018, Veterinary Medicine being her second degree having initially undertaken BioVeterinary Science at the Royal Veterinary College. Elsa’s first position was at a busy hospital in Essex which included copious amounts of emergency consultations and surgery giving her plenty of experience with a wide variety of cases. Although Elsa enjoys meeting new patients and caring for returning cases, she has a particular interest in performing surgery and is looking forward to gaining more experience in theatre, assisting in many of our more complex procedures. Elsa takes a lot of joy from working together with clients to provide the best care we can for their furry family members. ] Outside of veterinary life, Elsa’s happy place is her kitchen, where she enjoys trying out new recipes and hosting fabulous dinner parties for friends.
