Meet the Team


Dr. Christina Parker photo

Dr. Christina Parker

Dr. Christina Parker graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2012. Born and raised in London, Christina has had a deep love for animals since she was little (she used to dress head-to-toe in 101 Dalmatians gear as a young child.) That love of animals never faded, and led Christina to complete her studies and veterinary degree in Guelph. She worked at two other veterinary practices in London prior to joining the Whitehills team in September 2022.

Dr. Christina has many areas of veterinary medicine that interest her. After adopting a lab-mix (Dash) with multiple behavioural needs, animal behaviour has become a keen interest of hers. She also enjoys dentistry, complex internal medicine cases, and treating skin conditions. Christina's biggest joy is creating deep and long-lasting connections with clients and their four-legged companions.

Christina resides in London with her husband, 2 children, and a small collection of pets. In her spare time, she enjoys gardening (with a passion for pollinator plants), reading, camping, and eating delicious food.

She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Bio-Medical Science from the University of Guelph before entering vet school. Lynn has a wide diversity of experience from working with mice in a laboratory setting, lambing sheep in Northern Ireland and working on a dairy farm in Scotland to working with rhinos in South Africa, but she has always known her passion was working with small animals. Lynn enjoys attending veterinary conferences and expanding her knowledge through continuing education with keen interests in feline medicine and preventive care.

Lynn now lives in London with her husband, their two sons, five cats, and two dogs. In her spare time, she likes to read and watch movies.

2002 was a milestone year in my life: received my diploma in Veterinary Technology from Ridgetown College, passed my exam to become a Registered Veterinary Technician, and landed my first job in a mixed animal hospital.
After 17 years of working in a rural practice, my gaze shifted towards the city of London. In March 2020, I became a member of the fantastic team at Whitehills Animal Hospital, where I continue to exercise my passion for this profession.
My leisure activities include reading, music, and helping my significant other with his hobby farm and horticulture business.
