Laura joined the CareVets Kilbirnie team in November 2016.  She was raised in the Hawkes Bay and attended UCOL in Palmerston North where she qualified with a Diploma in Veterinary Nursing in 2013. 
Having grown up on a lifestyle block Laura became interested in Veterinary Nursing from caring for her own animals and helping during visits by her family’s veterinarian.
She enjoys the positive aspect of helping nurse sick pets back to good health and wants to use her knowledge to help people care for their pets the best they can.
Outside work, Laura is talented in the world of fashion design and wearable art and her productions have featured in several shows. Her other passion is classic cars and she has restored a ’57 Ford Prefect and an ’87 Toyota Corolla. 

Laura’s family includes her two cats, Sprocket (the fluffy heater hog), and Bow (who has her own cat sleeping bag).
