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”. As a mom who shuttles her kids to soccer, hockey, equestrian jumping, and numerous family functions, as well as looking after 10 pets (who’s counting!), Jane has very little downtime but she always makes time for her tea in the morning and anything kid related. Her guilty pleasure? Reading in bed under the covers with a book light.
If they could talk, what would her pets say about her? “Love her but why she feels the need to have more than just me in her life is beyond me”.
What would her pets say to her? “I’m your favorite, right mommy?”
It is Elma’s simple love of animals that brought her to this profession. Having graduated in 1995, that love allows her to work with and care for animals at the clinic as she cannot have them at home due to a family’s allergy towards them. Never mind though, she gets her fill knowing owners and patients are loved, well cared for and sent home better for the care we are able to provide.
Elma’s time away from the clinic is spent with her husband and son either watching movies, attending mass or just spending time with friends as well as making new ones.
Tharsini joined the Kingston Road Animal Hospital team as a Co-op student. She enjoyed the clinic and her volunteer time so much she applied to become an employee, of which we were happy to make her an official part of the team. Tharsini hopes to study veterinary medicine in the future and be able to work with us as a Vet one day.
During her free time, she enjoys the art of anime, as well as reading Manga. Always by her side is her 2-year-old black cat Coco and she hopes to add a canine companion to her family soon.
Jhay-em was born and raised in the Philippines surrounded by her many family pets; dogs, cats, a bird, fish, a rabbit and a hamster. With a background in office management and a love for animals, joining the VETS Toronto team was a dream job for her. You’ll find her big smile when you arrive as she works in reception. When not working, you can find Jhay-em in the kitchen or snuggle up with a good book.
Stefani comes to VETS Toronto with many years in the veterinary field as a Veterinary Technician. Stefani has learned that many things make a good team and the words such as communication, respect, compassion, and advocacy are just a few.
She treats every pet as if they were her own. She has learned to take time out of the busy day to enjoy the pets in our hospital and to respect the healing power of the human touch. And most importantly she realizes and appreciates the relationship shared between our clients and their pets.
Stefani resides in Markham with her husband and three children, and a cornucopia of pets.
