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”.

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.

Veterinary Assistants

Taylor

Veterinary Assistant

Coming from a small town I’ve grown up with animals my whole life. From my own pets and farms around me I've had lots of experience with different types of animals. I’ve owned cats,dogs,birds,snakes, rabbits and helped on farms with donkeys, horses cows, pigs and chickens. I’ve always been fascinated with reading animal behaviour and veterinary medicine/ science but was never sure what I wanted to do for a career until I heard about being a veterinary assistant. Since starting my new job I’ve learned so much about proper animal care and science. Everyday I’m learning a new skill and being able to use it almost daily. Gaining experience from this job will help me in the future when I decide to further my education in the veterinary medical field.
