Laura joined the Countryside team back in 1997 as a Vet Assistant. Despite going to GMU for her Psychology degree and onto VCU for her Masters in Social Work, she just couldn't stay away from her lifelong passion of caring for animals. Laura is so proud to have contributed to the legacy of Countryside Animal Clinic, working closely with Dr. McVey and Dr. Wright on the management team, and then overseeing the clinic's expansion and renovation, to welcoming our wonderful medical director, Dr. Jen Griffing. Laura is dedicated to the clinic, team, clients and patients, and loves to see old and new furry friends. Laura has resided in the Sterling area since 1994. She is married, with 3 children and 8 pets (2 dogs, 4 cats, and 2 guinea pigs).
