A tour of duty with her family in Germany introduced her to her love of horses.

During veterinary school, Lauren was involved in the student chapter of Bovine Practitioners and worked for a horse farrier (they shoe horses) during her summers. After graduation, Lauren worked for a rural mixed-animal practice for 6 years, where she enjoyed working with all species great and small. Lauren moved on to focus on swine veterinary medicine in North Carolina briefly, before the call Texas (and family) brought her home to San Antonio and Babcock Hills Veterinary Hospital. Outside of the practice, Lauren is actively involved in her church.
