Laura is a full time Licensed Veterinary Technician at our Kirkland location. She started working at NWAES in the Spring of 2018 but she had been working in the veterinary field for 4 years prior. She says her favorite part of working in this field is helping animals feel better and she especially loves cataract surgeries due to the instant gratification of giving a formerly blind pet their sight back. It is a very special moment for both the pet and owner, and she loves playing a role in making it happen!
Outside of work, Laura loves to read, play ultimate frisbee with her team, and go backpacking around Washington. She has 1 fluffy dog named Timber and 3 fluffy cats: Willa, Pippa, and Greebo. She is originally from Virginia, but she relocated to the Seattle area recently to join us here at NWAES. In order to get here, she drove 3000 miles in 3 days with all her belongings and her 4 animals with her! What a road trip!
