Our Team Westway Animal Clinic

Dr. Alexander Korol

Veterinarian & Practice Owner

Dr. Korol grew up in Odessa, Ukraine and moved to Canada in 1990. He graduated as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Guelph in 1999. Later that year, he began working for Westway Animal Clinic as an associate veterinarian and, in 2003, he became the practice owner.

Dr. Korol has a special interest in pain management, geriatric care and dermatology. His ‘furry family’ consists of his Shih-Tzu, Lucky & and his cats, Ashes and Georgie. When Dr. Korol is not working, he enjoys reading, cooking, and spending time with his family and friends.

Dr. Helen Longrigg

Veterinarian

Dr. Helen Longrigg is the newest associate veterinarian (2015) to join Westway Animal Clinic and is excited to be a member of such a knowledgeable and competent veterinary team that delivers outstanding care for companion animals and their families. She was raised in the town of...

...Oakville, Ontario and has been animal-crazy since childhood. Her keen interest in medicine and animal health led her to begin her journey to become a veterinarian at a young age. She volunteered and worked at many local veterinary clinics during high school and eventually applied to the University of Guelph where she completed her undergraduate degree in Animal Biology and received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2014. She lived and worked in Owen Sound as a veterinarian during her first year out of school, but eventually decided to move back to the GTA in order to be closer to friends and family.

Her special interests include dermatology, diagnostic imaging, nutrition and endocrinology, but she hopes to expand her knowledge in all aspects of veterinary medicine in the years to come. In her spare time, Dr. Longrigg enjoys spending time with her boyfriend (who is also a veterinarian) and their orange-tabby Spanky who is a source of endless entertainment. She also enjoys exploring the city and spending quality time with family and friends, or simply curling up with a good book!

Diana Korol

Practice Manager

Diana grew up in Odessa, Ukraine and has a background in teaching and administration. Diana has been an integral part of the Westway team since 2003. On top of her many duties as manager, Diana is head of the ‘hugs and kisses’ department, spoiling every pet that walks through our door with love and treats!

She is a proud owner of 3 rescue pets (2 cats and 1 dog) named Ashes, Lucky and Georgie. Diana is committed to providing the very best in client care and she is always available to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.

Ana grew up in Portugal. She joined the Westway team right after she graduated from the Veterinary Technology...

...program at Seneca College. After graduation she became a Registered Veterinary Technician and has been a member in good standing of the Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians (OAVT) ever since. Ana has a special interest in parasitology and is very interested in becoming involved with the Canadian Animal Assistance Team (CAAT) someday so that she can help animals in need.

Bayley

Registered Veterinary Technician

Bayley was born and raised in Etobicoke and graduated from the Veterinary Technology program at the University of...

...Guelph, Ridgetown Campus. She shares her home with her two dogs, Avery Davis and Charlie, along with a hedgehog named Melon. Her next pet will be a hairless cat! When she’s not at the clinic, Bayley can be found spending time with friends and family, walking the dogs or practicing yoga. Bayley has never met a pet she doesn’t love and can’t wait to meet all of the four-legged friends that make up the Westway family along with their parents. She is very excited to join the Westway team!

Carrie

Veterinary Assistant

Carrie is very excited to join a wonderful team at Westway Animal clinic as a Veterinary Assistant. She has two goofy cats named Olivia and Bean. Growing up surrounded by animals, Carrie knew from an early age that she wanted to work with them as a career. She hopes to be accepted into the...

...Animal Health technology degree program in 2018, to become a Registered Veterinary Technician.

Edgard

Veterinary Assistant

Edgard is a recent graduate from the Veterinary Assistant program at Seneca College and hopes to one day soon return...

...back to school to complete the Registered Veterinary Technician program. He grew up in a home with numerous pets including hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, fishes, cats, dogs and even snakes. Edgard knew from then on that he wanted to help the voiceless. Currently he owns a pet corn snake and lives with 3 dogs - a Pekingese named Fergie, a Chihuahua named Gizmo and a Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Luna (who belongs to his brothers) and has nothing but love for all of them. Edgard hopes to one day raise his very own Golden Retriever, German Shepherd or Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

Raquel

Veterinary Assistant

Raquel recently joined the Westway family after graduating from the Animal Care program at...

...Sheridan College. She is a proud owner of two silly dogs named Gus, Tasmanian as well as two chinchillas named Mickey and Minnie. In her free time, Raquel enjoys spending time with her family and friends, watching basketball, sketching and reading. She plans to return to school in order to complete the Wildlife Rehabilitation program at Northern College.

Alannah

Receptionist

Alannah was raised in a small town called Stouffville, which blessed her with the opportunity to be surrounded by...

...a variety of animals growing up. She grew up with a sassy little Pug dog, a sweet little tabby cat, and is currently the proud live-in Auntie of two of the most beautiful doggies in the world, and a cat (whom she's convinced is actually a dog in disguise), each of which receive annoying amounts of love from her whenever they cross paths. Although she had never had the opportunity to work with animals in the past, she had considered the idea many times as their presence and companionship has always given her a sense of comfort and joy. The moment she walked through the door at Westway Animal Clinic for her first interview she felt that same sense of comfort and joy, and immediately thought to herself "this feels right". She has learned a lot so far, and looks forward to continue to learn each and every day as she grows with the Westway team!

Lynda

Receptionist

When Lynda became a part of the Westway family in August 2012 she immediately felt at home!

...Being an animal lover, Lynda currently has four cats (Wally, Annabelle, Mimzy and Nikita), a dog (Jacob), a rabbit (Dali) and a bearded dragon (Henry). She enjoys working as a receptionist because she has the chance to meet and greet every owner and pet that stops by for a visit. Lynda aspires to return to school to complete the Veterinary Technician program at Seneca College.
