About Us/The Team

Kirsten Learmonth RVN

Kirsten joined our team in 2016, and qualified in 2021 with a level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing from North Highland College.

Coming from a beef and sheep farm and being brought up with horses, Kirsten has a keen interest in farm and equine work. With the Veterinary Nurse's role developing she is hopeful that there will be more opportunities to specialise in these areas. Kirsten also has a strong interest in small animal patient care, especially older & arthritic patients. She has done additional training and able constructs personalised exercise and mobility plans for these patients & physio exercises for animals post orthopedic surgery.

Kirsten also helps keep Flett and Carmichaels social media and website up-to-date, you may notice her dog Roxy appearing on several posts!

Outside work Kirsten, when not busy on the farm she enjoys exploring Orkneys coastline with Roxy, either by foot or paddle board.

Kirsten says that working alongside a hard working, knowledgeable team is hugely beneficial and enjoys the constant changes that comes with working in a busy mixed practice.
