Laurie started her career in the Veterinary field in September of 2018, where she worked in a regular practice in Port Moody. When she and her husband moved to the island, she decided to make the change from a regular practice to an emergency one, and that's when she joined the amazing team at CIVEH. Laurie joined the team in May of 2019 and has been working as a veterinary assistant ever since. She has always been around animals, from having family pets, to running a horse boarding/training facility, to having the opportunity to travel and train wild horses. She currently has 4 fur babies of her own, 3 cats, and a puppy. She hopes to apply to veterinary technician school in 2020 and then see where life takes her.
