Introducing Lauren, the familiar face you'll encounter at the front desk of Willamette Valley Animal Hospital. A Portland native through and through, Lauren's journey in animal care led her to study Zoology in the scenic landscapes of Colorado for two enriching years.

When she's not greeting clients and assisting with their needs at WVAH, Lauren finds solace and joy in the great outdoors. Whether she's exploring the lush trails of the Pacific Northwest on a hiking adventure or simply soaking up the sunshine, nature holds a special place in her heart. And of course, no outdoor excursion is complete without the company of her faithful canine companion, Finley.

With her deep-rooted connection to animals, her love for the natural world, and her warm and welcoming demeanor, Lauren epitomizes the essence of hospitality and care as a receptionist at WVAH.
