Animal Health Technologist/ Office Manager

Laura is an experienced Animal Health Technologist that is excited to be working with the team at Erin Ridge Veterinary Centre. In fact, Laura worked with many Erin Ridge Veterinary Centre staff members in previous years, and is happy to be reunited with them again!

Laura earned her Animal Health Technologist degree from NAIT in 2001. From there, she started her professional career working in general practice. She spent a number of years in emergency practice and then moved into specialty practice. Although she loved all the interesting cases seen in both emergency and specialty practice, she moved back into general practice after her daughter was born, finding it a better fit for family life. Laura enjoys getting to know her patients well, and seeing them grow through all their life stages.

It’s difficult for Laura to choose a single memorable example of a special experience she’s had during her career – only because there’s been so many! But her favourite part of caring for animals is seeing them turn a corner and begin to recover after a serious trauma or illness. “It’s rewarding. Seeing an animal start to get well makes me so happy, each and every time.”

Laura lives in Sherwood Park with her husband, who is a veterinarian, and their young son and daughter.
