Laura entered the veterinary field in 2010 as a receptionist and was promoted to team lead and eventually hospital manager. In 2017, Laura moved to the Temecula area and joined the STVH team. She is especially passionate about senior pet care after her experience with her beloved dog, Aero, who crossed over the rainbow bridge in March 2020. Laura is committed to helping other pet parents extend the quality of life for their pets as long as possible through multi-modality approaches that include diet, supplements, and medication. Outside of work, Laura enjoys spending time with her husband and daughters. She has two rescue pets who she adopted through working in the veterinary field: Rocket, a Chihuahua terrier mix and Ninja, a black shorthair cat. In her free time, Laura likes to read, write, and travel to the Bay Area to visit her family.
