Lori joined Bay Area Pet Pals at the beginning of 2019. She has spent her life doing what she loves – working with animals. She grew up in the military but settled and raised her family in Nebraska where she went to school to become a Veterinary Technician. Early in her career, she worked at an animal shelter where she rescued her first cat and dog.

Lori worked at a small animal and exotic practice in Nebraska for over 15 years (working with dogs, cats, birds and pocket pets) before moving into veterinary sales and then finally retirement in 2017. Lori and her husband moved to California four years ago with their senior cats, Chase and Alley. She is very experienced in veterinary care and can administer medications, injections and fluids.

She has a true love for all animals and approaches their care with love and patience. In her spare time, she loves cooking, hiking and reading (with a cat on her lap of course). She looks forward to meeting you and your pets and giving them the love and care they deserve!
