Lauren grew up in Oak Ridge. Her love affair with cats began when she was nine and was charged with caring for her neighbor’s cat while they were on vacation. She remembers really enjoying feeding the cat, freshening her water bowl, and brushing her soft fur. Lauren worked at a local animal hospital during high school and college. After more than a decade in other parts of the country, she returned to Tennessee. When she came across the job opening at Tri-County Small Animal Hospital, she knew it was a perfect fit.
Lauren lives with Sylvie, a little tabby cat who loves to chase pom poms and chirps at the birds from her indoor windowsill. In her free time, Lauren likes riding her bicycle, hiking, exploring new places, and reading books.
