Lauren grew up in a veterinary hospital—her family owns the Ark Animal Hospital business. She couldn’t help but fall in love with the veterinary profession, and now she serves as the Practice Manager!
Lauren was born in Boston, Massachusetts. When she was old enough, she started working in her parents’ vet hospitals, then worked as a receptionist through high school. After graduating, Lauren attended Temple University to study tourism and hospitality management, securing a business minor at the same time. Upon receiving her degree, Lauren took on even more responsibilities by becoming the Practice Manager.
Interacting with pet owners and building lasting relationships is Lauren’s favorite part of her day. She’s extremely proud of the amount of compassion in her family’s business; in fact, she and her coworkers strive to treat every patient and client as a member of their own family!
Lauren has a few pets of her own at home. Layla is a Great Dane/Labrador mix, and Phoebe is a Chihuahua/dachshund mix who defies her small stature with her huge personality. Both dogs can often be seen roaming the clinic corridors and greeting clients.
When she isn’t working, Lauren enjoys cooking, traveling, walking her dogs, and spending time with family and friends.
