She worked at two other local small animal practices over the last few years before making Stoney Creek her home.  Really, she has been working with animals her whole life.  Her mother opened up an animal grooming shop when she was little and after being around the animals, she knew caring for animals was her calling, not just her career. Lauren believes that she is one of those lucky people that gets to love going to work every day. She knows it takes a certain type of person to work in an veterinary hospital and she knows this is where she belongs. Her goal is to make life better for the beautiful pets she cares for every day.  Lauren has completed online classes to become an Approved Veterinary Assistant. She is the proud momma to two crazy rescue cats named Bobcat and Missy.
