Lauren is a full-time Veterinary Assistant at our Kirkland location. She started at NWAES in Fall of 2018 and came to us with over a year of experience in the field. She took veterinary assisting classes throughout high school and then worked at an exotic veterinary clinic after graduation. She has experience with handling all sorts of exotic creatures, both great and small.
Lauren says that her favorite aspect of veterinary medicine is meeting new clients and caring for animals as if they were her own. Outside of ophthalmology, she takes interest in exotic animals and wildlife. At home, she has 2 horses, 2 rabbits, 3 dogs, a cat, a guinea pig, and a hamster!
