Meet the Team

Vets Toronto serving Toronto's east end and Scarborough since 1986.

Jane Toner

Jane

Practice Administrator

Jane is one of our longest serving team members at Kingston Road Animal Hospital. She brought a pet into the clinic many years ago and liked Dr. Samson as a caregiver so much, that she knew she wanted to be part of his clinic. While working her way through university, she spent time honing her skills through a hands-on approach coupled with continuing education; this continues to this day.

“I have worked at Kingston Road Animal Hospital off and on since 1986, always coming back to where it all started. We have the best clients who let us do the best medicine”.

Customer Service Representatives

Fiona

Practice Manager / Customer Service Representative

Grew up in Ireland and moved to Canada in 2014. I began working at VetsToronto Kingston Road Animal Hospital in March 2015 and have worked here on and off since then, starting as a Customer Service Representative and then in 2019 I was given the opportunity to become Practice Manager.
From a young age I always had the desire to work with animals in some capacity and when I moved to Canada that opportunity came about. I have 11 years of Customer Service Experience and I am extremely passionate about working with pets and their people and helping to ensure that they get the best care possible.

Hunter

Hunter is a Customer Service Representative with a passion for animal welfare. Having fostered cats and dogs through a number of local rescues for the last several years, she joined our team in 2019 hoping to build a career in the veterinary industry. Hunter is currently working towards becoming a veterinary technician so she can better serve animals as well as their owners.


Melanie

Customer Service Representative

I started working at Kingston Road Animal Hospital in February 2019. I currently have 2 cats Rosie and Ollie and an English Setter named Cooper. I have owned both cats and dogs my whole life and my family predicted I would be working in this field at a young age. I am applying to go to Seneca College to study to become a veterinary technician.


Marissa

Customer Service Representative

I grew up in the Philippines and finished my studies in Animal Sciences and Veterinary Degree there. I came to Canada in June of 2009 and started working at Banks Animal Hospital in September of 2009 as a ward attendant. Over the years I worked as a customer care representative in Banks Animal Hospital. With the joining forces of Banks Animal Hospital and VetsToronto in May I began working at VetsToronto and have been excited to see our Banks Clients coming to our new location. My favorite part of my job is working with both the pets and their owners and being there to help when they are in need. When I am not at work, I spend my time with my husband and my two boys enjoying everything that Toronto has to offer.
