Lauren began her employment at Capitol Illini in April, 2011. She was hired as a veterinary assistant, but now acts as both records keeper and assistant. She was born and raised in Chatham, graduating from Glenwood in 2005. Working with animals has always been one of Lauren's ideal jobs. When asked about her favorite part of her job, Lauren stated that in addition to educating clients, she enjoys "interacting with coworkers and working in an environment where there is an opportunity to learn something new every day, as well as forming relationships with our clients and patients." She currently lives in Auburn with her Doberman Gotti, her shepherd mix Tucker, and her cat Corona. In her free time, Lauren enjoys hawk and eagle watching, hanging out with her friends, and being outside with her dogs. Lauren's affection for animals, her personality and quick humor has made her a wonderful addition to our team.
