Lauren was born and raised in Spokane. For as long as she can remember she dreamed of a career in veterinary medicine. After graduating from Cheney High School in 2006, she attended Yakima Valley Community College. In 2008, she graduated with an Associate of Applied Science degree in Veterinary Technology, going on to sit and pass the National Board exam to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician.
Lauren began her time at Garland Animal Clinic during her pre-graduation clinical experience. Upon graduation she was offered a full time position and she never looked back, working up to lead technician. She loves working here because of the great quality of care that all the staff strives to provide for our great clients and their furry kids.
Lauren shares her home with 4 fur babies of their own, their German Shepherd/Great Dane mix Sam, Great Dane Finnick and two horses Blitz and Squirrel. During the summer months she loves being outdoors riding her horse and competing as a member of PSHA, a western gaming/speed event group. In the winter she enjoys curling with the Lilac City Curling Club.
