Laura graduated from the Animal Health Technology program at University College of the Cariboo (what is now Thompson Rivers University) in Kamloops in 2002.  She spent five years working exclusively with cats and loved her job, but also missed working with dogs and other small animals.  She joined the McKenzie Veterinary Services team in 2008, where she’s enjoyed caring for multiple species of patients.  She lives with her husband, two young children, four cats, and dog.  In her free time she enjoys camping and hiking with her family.
