Shortly after, she received her associates in veterinary technology through the Penn Foster program, then obtained her certification. Growing up, Lauren has always had dogs, cats, fish, hamsters, and a variety of other pets. In her spare time, she loves to spend time with her family which includes her fiancée, 2 daughters, and her fur children which currently include a Yorkshire terrier named Bleu, and a shepherd mix named Luna.
"I have always loved working with animals and enjoying caring for them for as long as I can remember. I knew that I wanted to work in the veterinary medicine ever since caring for my beloved cat, Bootsie, when I was younger. I wanted to understand his disease process and provide the best care possible for him, so once he passed away from heart disease, I decided I wanted to be a veterinary technician. Helping people understand and care for sick animals is very rewarding to me and feels like I am giving back a good service to the community."
