SouthCare Animal Medical Center | Spokane, WA

Laurel was raised in the sunny state of Florida but was actually born in Washington. After finding her way back to the beautiful Pacific Northwest, she graduated from The Evergreen State College in 2011. She started working in emergency veterinary medicine as a kennel assistant, which then transitioned into a job as an assistant with a mobile veterinary radiologist. One thing lead to another (as life sometimes does) and she got an opportunity to work in a specialty hospital. Critical care medicine will always hold a special place in her heart, but gaining experience in neurology, surgery, oncology, ophthalmology, and internal medicine was equally as exciting to her! This field is her “happy place” in life.

She and her husband are super outdoorsy – camping, hiking, gardening, traveling. In the summer of 2018, she welcomed her first daughter. She’s also a proud parent of many fur and feather babies: Steve the rescue border collie mix, Tyke the parvo-surviving border collie, George her bottle-fed cat, and Oliver her shower-singing Amazon parrot. Plus a myriad of farm animals!
