Lauren Harris, Veterinary Nurse

Lauren has been working in the veterinary field since July 2012. She is a veterinary technician having attained her degree in Veterinary Technology from Northshore Technical Community College. Lauren has a black and white paint gelding named Levi. She has competed with him in Western Riding events throughout south Louisiana. She also has 2 miniature horses, Hope and Angel, that she uses for therapy horses. Angel is a certified therapy horse that she takes to visit sick persons, especially children. She loves seeing the excitement on the children’s faces when visiting the hospitals. Finally, she has 2 poodles named Paris and Zoey. Like most of us, her dogs are very spoiled and think they are 4-legged people. In her free time Lauren is involved in her church and enjoys helping her parents and grandparents. She also enjoys “hanging out” at the barn teaching the miniature horses new tricks.
