Laura has worked in the field of veterinary medicine since 1994. Her first job was at a large animal practice where she would go out on farm-calls after school and on the weekends. Later, she went on to work at the Humane Society of the Willamette Valley, where she learned how to care for cats and dogs in a shelter environment. Here, she became passionate about the importance of educating potential pet owners to ensure animals would end up in their forever homes. After her years at the Humane Society, Laura worked at a veterinary clinic in Salem, and she realized that working in a small animal practice was the area of veterinary medicine she loved the most. In 2000, Laura finally found her forever home at Cat Care Professionals. She loves helping clients get the information they need to make confident and comfortable choices for their cats. Laura lives in Wilsonville with her son and their two cats, Silverton and Derek.
