Dr. Rebecca Maybank
Veterinarian and Practice Owner
Dr. Rebecca Maybank is a 2015 graduate of the Western College of Veterinary Medicine. Originally from Edmonton, Alberta, she has made the Kootenays home, and adores the unsurpassed natural beauty of the mountains. Rebecca currently resides in Nelson with her husband, their two cats, Linus and F. Gord, and their very sweet dog, Frankie. She enjoys skiing, mountain biking, gardening, musical theatre, and peaceful dog walks with her canine companion.
Dr. Maybank is a member of good standing in both the College of Veterinarians of British Columbia, and the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association. While working as a small animal practitioner in Nelson she has developed strong relationships with her clients and patients. It is through these experiences that she has realized that many pet families can benefit from veterinary care in a comfortable, peaceful place that is familiar to them. It is with this motivation that she has started Maybank Mobile Veterinary services, with the hopes of bringing compassionate accessible veterinary care to our beloved Kootenay pets.
Dr. Karen Nasir
Dr. Karen Nasir is an Ontario Veterinary College graduate and originally hails from Toronto. Her experience ranges from general practice to shelter medicine to emergency and referral medicine. After working multiple years as a locum in the GTA and then as a full-time ER veterinarian, she moved to British Columbia in 2019 and has enjoyed being in Nelson ever since.
Dr. Nasir is pleased to be part of the Maybank Mobile team and is a member in good standing with both the CVBC and the CVO. Providing quality veterinary care has always been a priority throughout her career and being able to do so in the calm of the home environment is truly rewarding. Dr. Nasir looks forward to helping patients that may not do well in a traditional hospital setting, especially for her senior patients that she holds a soft spot for.
In her downtime, you are just as likely to find Dr. Nasir on a sunny or snowy outdoor adventure, as you would catch her curled up with a good book and a cup of tea.

Client Care Representative and Social Media Manager
Jacy is a born and raised Kootenay gal from Salmo, BC. After graduation she moved to Kelowna to attend school for a career in the veterinary field. Once she completed her program she was eager to return to her home in the Kootenays. Jacy worked locally in general practice for several years as a veterinary assistant, receptionist, as well as practice manager. In March 2022 Jacy made the switch and joined the team at Maybank Mobile Veterinary Services in a primarily administrative role.
Jacy worked closely with both Caroline and Dr. Rebecca Maybank in general practice and was very excited to hear about their new business venture. Although she misses seeing the pets and people in person every day she is so happy to be a part of such an innovative and compassionate team. Jacy is also behind the scenes of our social media and loves when our clients are able to share photos of their furry friends!
In Jacy’s spare time she enjoys spending time with her partner, Stepan, and their dog, Jersey. Their days are filled with fun in the sun, fishing, playing slo pitch, and enjoying the beauty that the Kootenays has to offer. You can also almost always find her home filled with an extra foster dog or litter of kittens – she can’t resist!
