Nursing Team

Rose Condie

Rose came to Crossriggs in 2003 as a full time veterinary nursing assistant after working at veterinary practices in Edinburgh, and also after several years as a zookeeper at Edinburgh Zoo.

In 2004 she left briefly, then returned part time, to allow her to set up her boarding facilities for cats.

She also trains young, keen Border Collies as working dogs for farmers who don’t have the necessary time themselves, and occasionally breed litters of Border Collies.

Jennifer Nicholson RVN

Jennifer started working at Crossriggs in 2012 as a student Veterinary Nurse when she began training at the Barony College in Dumfries. In November 2014 she qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse and has been part of the Crossriggs team ever since.

In her spare time, Jennifer competes in agility with her two border collies and enjoys travelling around Scotland to compete.

Beth Shankland RVN

Beth joined us in October 2015 for her first nursing placement. Some of our clients will already know Beth as she volunteered here for several years after school before studying Veterinary Nursing. Beth completed her training in 2017 and we are delighted that she will remain with us on our nursing team.
