Lauren started as a technician at Middlesex County Animal Hospital in 2018. Her lifelong passion for animals was apparent when she adopted her first pet at the age of 5, a Parakeet named Treasure. Her love of animals led her to manage a holistic pet store where for 7 years she helped people find the best items for their pets. She decided to leave retail to focus on a new career in veterinary sciences. Lauren is owned by a rescue Pug named Kelso, a Boston terrier, Tesla, and a Pitbull Percy. She also shares her home with two kitties, Twix and Helix. She is a huge Disney fan and loves anything Starwars, Marvel or Harry Potter. Outside of work, Lauren enjoys singing, going to the beach but mostly loves spending time with her fiancé Dan and their young son Shane.
