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

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 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.

Animal Care Attendant
Hi, I’m Caitlin! I’ve always had a love for animals, their trusting nature, and their ability to love unconditionally. Ever since I got my own dog 7 years ago, I knew going into an animal-related field would be the right thing for me. I am fascinated by the behaviors of animals, what they can do for the human spirit, and vice versa. I began working at a doggy daycare about 5 years ago and loved learning the different ways dogs communicate with each other and humans. I decided to venture into animal clinics as an animal care attendant, and have had the pleasure to learn more and more every day.
My favorite part: making sure your pet feels safe, cared for, and has the best experience they can have with us.
