DR. JESSICA SCOTT
Doctor of Veterinary Medicine
Dr. Scott attained a B.Sc. from McGill University, and went on to the Atlantic Veterinary College in Charlottetown, PEI for her veterinary training. She had practiced in Halifax for 5 years before moving to Toronto with her husband, and settling into her career. In addition to keeping very busy with her two school-age children, she has a furry family of two cats and a yellow lab who loves the happy chaos.
When not at work, she can be spotted running never-ending errands in the neighbourhood, or like many of us, pulling her dog away from eating something on the ground.
Manager & Head RVT
After graduating from Centralia College, Karen began working as a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) iat a clinic in Scarborough where shortly after, Dr. Jones joined the team. They have been working together now for over 25 years! When Dr. Jones decided to open Main Street Veterinary Clinic, he didn't hesitate to give Karen a call to ask her to be the manager and head technician.
Karen enjoys all aspects of being an RVT, from dental procedures and surgeries, to taking xrays and caring for ill pets. She also loves having our new in-house blood machines.
When not at Main Street, you can often find her at the local rugby pitch or at home watching a rugby game with her husband, George, their son Ethan and their pets Lennie, the Frenchie, and Buddha the cat. Although they live in Canada, their "home away from home" is at the beach in Cuba where Karen and her husband got married 15 years ago!
We first met Wiingushk (or Wiing for short) when we brought her on as a placement student last year. We loved her so much that we hired her shortly after graduating from Seneca College in May. After graduation she passed the Veterinary Technician National Exam to become an RVT. Wiing loves all aspects of being a technician with a special affinity for surgeries. She loves all kinds of animals including lizards and spiders (but hates millipedes/centipedes).
Wiing has grown up with many types of pets and currently has a zoo at home comprised of two cats, Boo and Hermione, two dogs, Lucy the Frenchie and Charlie, as well as a cornsnake named Nagini. Outside of the clinic Wiing loves watching lacrosse, hockey and reading. She is also an avid video game player with her favorite video game being The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Stephanie began working with the Main Street team in May of 2018 after finishing her BSc. at Trent University in Biology. She aspires to continue her studies in Veterinary Medicine in the near future. She also assists with an NGO in Mexico to provide veterinary care to pets in need of medical attention, and homeless dogs and cats who need homes and shelter. When she isn’t taking care of animals at the clinic, she can be found walking with her chocolate lab, Dakota, or snuggled up with him and her cat, Summer. She also loves spending time with family and their pets which includes 4 dogs and a cat. No one ever really knows how many pets she and her partner actually have because they're so often caring for those of friends and family, they usually have multiple at a time! If not spending time with animals, she enjoys tending to her many house plants and garden, as well as being active by running, speed skating, or attending the odd yoga class.

Sheena has been part of the Main Street Team from day one after graduating with a diploma in medical administration from Centennial College. She loves her job and always keeps the team giggling with her infectious laugh. Sheena is great with the animals as well as their owners.
Sheena is a lover of all animals, but she has a special soft spot for big, orange tabby cats just like her crazy boy named Leo-Di-Cat-Rio.
Sheena's the shopaholic out of all of us and enjoys binge-watching her favorite TV shows and finding new movies on Netflix. In the summertime, you'll often find Sheena outside soaking up as much sun as possible and bringing it with her to the clinic to brighten up our days!
