Vet Nurse Lauren 

Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing

Lauren started her career as a zookeeper working with various Australian native animals in zoos and conservation centres around Australia. She especially loved her time with Tree Kangaroos in far North Queensland and koalas in Adelaide. Lauren found her interest in the medical care of these species while she was zookeeping and decided to study vet nursing.

Lauren has worked in small animal veterinary clinics as well as running her own mobile vet nursing business. Before starting with us, she worked with Antarctic penguins and aquatic species. Lauren loves having the opportunity to combine her two loves: exotic species and nursing.

Hobbies and Intereses

Outside of work, Lauren keeps busy as a singer in a wedding band. She also swims a couple of times a week and has a revolving door of foster animals.

Owned Pets

Lauren is a proud pet parent to Penelope Ruth, a gorgeous Bearded Dragon that she adopted from our very own Homeless Herps program many years ago.
