Dr. Ness graduated in 1991 from the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph in the Honours program. The plan was always to practice in large animal medicine. However, after graduation Dr. Ness started working at a small animal clinic in the Kingston area and has never looked back.
Upon moving to St Catharines in 1993, Dr. Ness practiced in emergency medicine and at local small animal clinics for several years before purchasing Glenridge Animal Hospital in 2010.
Since owning GAH, Dr. Ness has acted as a referral surgeon for other clinics as her passion lies in the surgery room.
She also regularly takes continuing education classes to keep up-to-date on all the changes in the veterinarian field.
When she is not at the clinic, Dr. Ness enjoys spending time with her 3 children, her dogs (Lily and Sheldon) and her 4 cats (Jerry, Leo, Otis and Seraphina) and traveling the globe!!
Dr. Lisa graduated alongside Dr. Ness in 1991 from the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph in the Honours program. She started working at a small animal practice in Toronto until she married and moved to the Niagara Region in 1995.
After working for a few years at small animal clinics in the Niagara region, Dr. Lisa made the decision to open the NOTL Veterinary House Call Service and continues to operate the business to this date. Along with the house call practice, Dr. Lisa works at GAH where she joined the team in 2011.
When she is not working, Dr. Lisa enjoys spending time with her husband and 2 sons along with their small herd of dogs - Dorris, Owen, Tini, Max and Grady. She also takes several continuing education classes to keep up-to-date on all the changes in the veterinarian field, and in her rare off hours enjoys reading and gardening.
Amanda started her career in the veterinary field in Grade 9 as a co-op student and has continued in the field ever since. While working, she completed the Paralegal program at triOS college with honours but her love for animals kept her from pursuing a career in the legal field. Amanda worked at the Fort Erie Racetrack as a hot-walker and groom, and for many years in a small animal emergency clinic before finding her place at GAH.
Amanda and her spouse share their home with several pets – 5 dogs (Brooklyn, Terrence, Peggy, Cordell and Marshall), 4 cats (Maggie, Chilly, Phoebe and Penelope) and some fish! Amanda spends her evenings caring for several horses at a boarding facility, including her own two (Stetson and Tex).

Sadly, we lost our precious Terrence to a very aggressive cancer. He will be missed by all who knew him. Sept 27, 2012 - Sept 26, 2018.
Terrence began his career at GAH as a foster at the young age of 8 weeks back in 2012. Since then he has been a vital part of the GAH team and appears to be the favourite staff member of most clients. He spends most of his time cuddled under a warm fleece blanket but doesn't hesitate to come out to greet anyone that walks through the door, whether they have 2 legs or 4. He takes his duty as Nurse Terrence very seriously and is always there to make scared patients feel more comfortable. If you touch the treat jar his attention is all on you, and he is your best friend if the treat ends up in his mouth! Terrence enjoys sun bathing and modelling
and is a baby carrot connoisseur!
