Our Team: Veterinary Assistant
Our veterinary assistants aid the veterinarian in physical examinations and assist our licensed technicians with treatments and procedures. They are there to facilitate the patient to veterinarian interaction.
A Canisius College graduate and a West Seneca native, Lauren is a Veterinary Assistant to the Cheektowaga Veterinary Hospital. Her previous experience at the West Palm Beach Zoo, Buffalo Zoo, and Lothlorien Therapeutic Riding Center, make her a valuable member of the hospital’s support team. She has been working for CVH since 2007. It is no surprise Lauren has a home full of animals. She has 3 dogs, 4 birds, 1 rooster, 2 cats and 6 lab rats. When not taking care of her bunch of critters, Lauren enjoys hiking, camping, drawing/painting, and bird watching, of course.

Jackson shares his home with his cat Mr. Ted Mosby, who you will find either sleeping or running up walls.
