Laura graduated from Deakin University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Biological Sciences (with Distinction), majoring in Zoology and Cell and Molecular Biology. During her time at Deakin, she was admitted entry into the Golden Key Honours Society for her academic performance. Knowing becoming a veterinarian was always her dream, she then applied for the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) at the University of Melbourne, and subsequently graduated in December 2019.
At Southpaws, Laura is known for her bubbly personality and can often be found sharing a laugh with the team. She prides herself on her communication, work ethic and organisational skills. She is passionate about providing a high standard level of care to her patients; is a keen learner and takes interest in multiple facets of the veterinary field including surgery, internal medicine and emergency and critical care. The internship at Southpaws has been the perfect new graduate position for Laura. The team provides an incredible amount of support and endless learning opportunities which have helped kick start her career and develop her skills and knowledge further.
In her down time, Laura doesn’t shy away from a Netflix binge watch of the latest hit series or re-watching her favourite movies and TV shows for the umpteenth time. Otherwise she can be found spending time with her friends or relaxing at home with her partner and beloved (and very spoilt!) cat, Nala.
