After living in Canada for 7 and a half years Lauren returned to Brisbane and started her studies in veterinarian nursing.  Lauren began at My Own Vet for her placement while undertaking her certificate 3 in animal studies, and is now working as a trainee nurse while completing her certificate 4 in veterinarian nursing.

Lauren enjoys all aspects of vet nursing, although at times it can be emotional, Lauren says it’s a very rewarding job. There’s nothing better than helping a sick animal back to health and returning them to their thankful and relieved family.

Outside of work Lauren enjoys going on bushwalks, playing netball, going to art shows, and of course hanging out with her awesome cat George.
