Dr. Ness graduated in 1991 from the Ontario Veterinary College,University of Guelph, in the Honours program. The plan was always to practise large animal medicine. However, after graduation, Dr. Ness started working at a small animal clinic in the Kingston area, and has never looked back since then.
Upon moving to St Catharines in 1993, Dr. Ness practised emergency medicine 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, University of Guelph in the Honours program. She started practising small animal medicine 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.

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 two of her own, (Stetson and Tex).
In her spare time she enjoys reading, running, yoga and spending time with her family.
Alison graduated from the University of Guelph as a Registered Veterinary Technician in 2001. Over the years she has worked in various small animal clinics in the Hamilton and Niagara regions, including our local emergency clinic for 6yrs. She became part of the Glenridge family in 2019.
Travelling the world to help animals in need is something that is very dear to Alison. She has been part of several Street Dog Spay and Neuter Projects in places like Squamish BC, Sri Lanka, and Guatemala. During her stint in Guatemala, she fell in love with a street dog she named Skittles. So much so that she brought him home and they spent 16 wonderful years together. Her passion for animals carries into nature and the proper care and rehabilitation of wildlife here and afar, including time volunteering at the Olive Ridley Sea Turtle Conservation in Costa Rica.
Alison is also a part time photographer. She takes amazing photos of nature, pets and their families. When not at the clinic or out on a shoot, she enjoys spending time with her husband and son.

Morgan didn’t know right away that her passion was going to lead her to the veterinary world. After spending10yrs working in customer service, she became a nanny to two wonderful children in Ottawa. Once ending up in the Niagara Region, she began working at an ice cream shop in NOTL.
While here, she became the owner of some very lovely rats. The love of her rats is what turned her passion for animals into full force and she decided to go back to school. After attending the University of Guelph and graduating with a certificate in Veterinary Office Administration and Assistance, she became a member of the Glenridge family.
