Laura completed the Veterinary Assistant fast track program at College of DuPage in December 2012. She started her career as a Veterinary Technician Assistant in January 2013. Growing up in Lisle, IL and loving her hometown, she had previously worked at two other private practice clinics in the area. Always wanting to continue learning and broaden her knowledge in different aspects of veterinary medicine, she had even dabbled in shelter medicine for a little while. Although she enjoyed it, her true passion lies in private practice where she has more contact with clients, as well as their loved pets. It is important to her to let the humans know they mean as much to her as the animals do. Laura joined PPVS in 2020. In her spare time she enjoys kayaking, bonfires, motorcycle rides, scary movies and cuddling with her crazy zoo of fur babies consisting of her Pitbull “Dexter” and four cats, “Shelby”, “Socks”, “Shadow”, and “Shawnee”.
