Meet our team of caring professionals. Pet care brought to you by people who care.
We’re pet owners, too. We know the joy of falling in love with a new pet, the comfort of spending time with faithful friends and the pain of saying that final goodbye. We want to work with you, as partners, to strengthen and enjoy your relationships with your beloved pets.
Upon graduation, this ‘army brat’ returned to the Kingston area to work as a small animal veterinarian. She became the practice owner at Richmond Veterinary Clinic in 2007 and opened Land O’Lakes clinic in Northbrook in 2011. She is a huge proponent of low-stress handling of our patients. Dr. Faye loves making sure the team at the clinic has great equipment to work with in a beautiful facility. And coffee.
Her home is just north of Kingston, shared with cats, a dog, and her family. She enjoys creative writing and knitting, and keeps trying but failing at camping.
She began small animal practice in the Kingston area shortly after graduation, and joined our practice in 2003. Since then, she has developed a special interest in surgery and feline medicine, loves continuing education, and has been a member of the AAFP (American Association of Feline Practitioners) since 2011. She is currently studying advances in diagnostic imaging.
Her perfect workday would be challenging surgical cases interspersed with kitten visits and the odd grumpy old cat. With a little music on the side.
She is an accomplished weight lifter, loves to travel with her family and can be tempted to sit still with dark chocolate, a cat on her lap and a good book.
She finds her work most rewarding when she can alleviate stress and pain in her patients and educate their owners regarding pet health. She has a special interest in behaviour problems, and has the patience and dedication to work through complex medical diagnoses. She is also taking CE so she can utilize our ultrasound equipment to help our patients.
In her off hours, you might find her introducing her daughter to equestrian sports or enjoying rally obedience, agility and scent detection with her dogs.
Sam finds great satisfaction in the long-term relationships we build here with patients and their people. She enjoys her days in the surgical suite, but can also be found making time to give that special pet their favourite treat. She’s our go-to gal for nutrition recommendations and does a great job keeping the special order and backorder lists straight.
When she’s not here, Sam loves to spend time with her family, relaxing at the cottage, and sharing her love of horseback riding with her daughter.
She loves working with our patients in the surgical suite, and is the one who can keep everyone organized. No matter how hectic the day, she doesn’t lose her cool and is always advocating for our patients and their owners. One of her greatest rewards is to make a pet more comfortable and improve their quality of life.
Krista loves to garden, read and spend time with her family. She’s also a boss cake maker.
Hannah is always there, quietly making sure the doctors stay on time, that the lab work is completed and our patients are comfortable in and after surgery. One of the rewards of this work for Hannah is supporting pet owners through difficult times.
She is an avid golfer, and loves to spend time with friends and family. Maybe a little travel, too. So far, she only has one dog, but we’re working on her 😉.
She’s been a great addition to our team, helping to make sure our laboratory and procedures rooms run smoothly. Bre enjoys advocating for patients and educating clients about their pets’ health.
When she’s away from the office, Bre enjoys camping and hiking with her dogs. Check out www.hankiesnpaws.com where she combines her design flair, photography and her sewing skills to make unique products for you and your fur family.
She is always ready to help out, can switch into emergency mode in the middle of a stride and can tire out even our most energetic veterinarians. The most rewarding part of the job, for Mandy, is working with senior patients, improving their quality of life, and helping keep them more comfortable at home. She also looks after our growing collection of plants.
She is a foster fur-mom extraordinaire, giving care and a temporary home to more than 50 dogs and 2 dozen cats, so far. She also loves reading, crocheting and other fibre arts, and regularly takes her dogs for long forest walks.
She’s always ready to learn how to use new technologies, especially something that can help our patients and clients. She helps keep us organized, and can lighten the darkest days with her sense of humour.
A big fan of the TV series ‘Friends’, she even named one of her cats, ‘Chandler Bing’, after her favorite character. Erin also enjoys spending time with her family and taking her dog for walks.
Kerisa knows how to fix almost anything. She’s always cheerful and ready to lend a hand to help keep our patients comfortable and our clients happy. Her best days are when she sees a pet improving with our care.
She is an artist, and loves the outdoors. You might find her painting, out on the lake or snowmobiling, depending on the season.
With her quiet demeanour and training in low-stress handling, Hailey is able to soothe nervous dogs and even the spiciest of cats. She is a huge asset in the examination room.
Hailey has several cats and a dog. Outside of work, she loves to spend time with them, doing bead work and relaxing at her camp.
She loves working in our inpatient and surgery areas and has amazing results working with dogs with attitude. She gets great satisfaction helping pets, knowing she’s played an important part in relieving their pain and making their lives better. She also entertains us in her role as in-house DJ, with a playlist for every mood.
London is very active in sports, playing golf and baseball, as well as spending time outdoors with activities like hiking and fishing. She loves to travel with her family, and this dynamo even has her own business called Buss Stop Bakery.
You may see her smiling face in the outpatient area, as she does her best to keep the veterinarians running on time. She believes the most rewarding part of the career is that we get to make a difference in animals’ lives!
When she’s not at work, she enjoys crafting, streaming shows and hanging out with her friends.
Although new to veterinary medicine, her thirst for knowledge and quickness on her feet make her a perfect addition to our team. We’ve learned that the bigger the smile, the bigger the problem she’s working hard to solve. Alison enjoys helping owners and pets figure out their problems and watching the animals grow!
She loves to spend time with her family and pursuing a lifelong passion working with and riding horses.
Jenn joined us with a smile, and is eagerly meeting our clients and patients while learning a new software system and a unique type of scheduling. We so appreciate her drive to find a way to help any client who needs us.
When she’s not at work, Jenn spends time hiking with her dog, painting, knitting and travelling the world.
She focuses on making sure our beautiful facility is clean, tidy and odour-free. She also takes the time to look after her co-workers, all of whom she treats like family.
In her down time, Robin likes to relax at home with her family and (growing) clowder of cats.
If Lucas is on duty, you might hear a jaunty whistle near the end of the day as he helps keep the facilities clean and tidy. He enjoys the opportunity to help beloved pets in need and is a great team member.
When not at work or school, he enjoys road-tripping, time with family and hobbies like gardening.
She’s one of the voices on the phone and smiling faces at the reception desk, as well as a wizard with computers. Alexis is interested in any new cases or problems and wants to see how we solve them. She loves to hear stories from our clients of pets who recover, and how grateful they are that we could help them.
Outside of work, she loves to spend time at the barn with her horse, binge-watching tv shows, or sleeping.
Her joy in this work comes from seeing a sick pet recover. She also enjoys watching the action in our surgical suite and seeing the pets grow up! Sydney is one of our computer whizzes, and works reception on weekends.
An avid reader, especially of fantasy and adventure, she also likes spending time around horses and horseback riding. She makes some of her own clothes and enjoys painting. Her current big project is a mural on her wall at home.
