Lauren Heydenberk, Exam Room Assistant

    Hi, my name is Lauren. I have only been working with animals for 3 years, but in those 3 years I have learned tons. Growing up my family always had animals; my first pet was a Bernese Mountain Dog named Mackinac (Mackie for short.) I loved her dearly. Unfortunately we lost her when I was 13, but my family has had many pets since then. We mostly had/have cats and dogs, but we also had a mouse, gecko lizard and a macaw. I am currently working towards my associates degree in dental hygiene at GRCC. As much as I love animals, I know that I really want to be a dental hygienist.

    I have been working at Eastown Vet since May of 2017 and have loved every minute working here. Who wouldn’t love getting to see dogs and cats all day? I’m known as the silly and bubbly one around here at work. I always have a smile on my face and I love to keep people in a good mood. How do I do this you ask? Well, I dance, of course. I may not be very good at it but if I can get a laugh, I’m happy.

    My family currently has a Tuxedo Cat named Boo, and two dogs – a Golden Retriever named Ruby and a Shih Tzu named Moshi.
