As a college student, though, Lauren didn’t imagine herself working with human patients at all. Instead, she set out for a career in veterinary medicine. When it came time to apply for graduate school, she realized she loved animals, but didn’t love animal medicine. Instead, she found herself drawn to human medicine. Today, she loves finding creative ways to help and educate people. In her free time, Lauren enjoys trying her hand at interior design on a budget. She also watches Netflix and swims. Lauren was born and raised in the area and still lives here.
