Lauren grew up on a farm outside of a small town in Nebraska. She attributed her love for animals and work ethic to her upbringing. She has loved animals for as long as she can remember and could not imagine doing anything different in life than loving and taking care of them. Lauren graduated from the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture in 2004 where she received a Veterinary Technician degree and took the national board exam to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician. Lauren loves music and going to concerts! When she’s not at the clinic you might find Lauren reading, spending as much time as possible with her family or visiting the farm where she grew up as a child. Lauren shares her life with a cat named Dempsey as well as a rescue dog named Quinn.
