Lauren, who grew up in Cairns, has always obsessed with animals. However it was the story of a local vet saving a trio of lion cubs (and temporarily ending up with them in the backyard) that cemented her desire to be a vet.
She moved to Townsville QLD to obtain her Bachelor of Veterinary Science from James Cook University and made the most of her placements around Australia and New Zealand in small animal, mixed, and exotic practices. When it came to deciding where to go next however she fled the FNQ heat to enjoy our lovely Orange weather.
Outside of work Lauren has a love of basketball, reading, travel, Netflix and hanging out with her newest family member – Clinic Cat Evie. Of course, as she’s been in Orange since 2017, she has also developed a taste for wine and fine food!
