Laura joins us as the new Coast Animal Health hospital director. She grew up in Port Stephens before studying a Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Sydney University. After graduating in 2012 she worked at practices in both Sydney and the Central Coast before heading to the UK to work and travel for nearly 5 years. For the past 2 years Laura has been working in a busy 24 hour emergency veterinary hospital in the South East of England.

Missing the Australian lifestyle, particularly the weather, she decided to return home for her love of bushwalking, outdoor sports and photography. Currently without pets of her own, she will be keeping an eye out for that special rescue cat or dog that can be spoilt rotten!

Laura thoroughly enjoys the surprises and interesting challenges that come each day while working with animals. She has interests in both internal medicine and soft tissue surgery as well as wildlife medicine.
