Lauren Murphy

Animal Care Assistant
For as long as I can remember I've always loved all animals, big or small. Due to both of my parents being paramedics for the city of Edmonton, I have grown a fascination for any kind of medical treatment. So why not combine them both? I started volunteering for a vet clinic at the age of 15 and graduated from Bellerose Composite High School in 2014. I have an interest in animal behavior, especially exotics. One thing I love most about my job is seeing the transformation of each pet in their well being when they first come in, the treatment, the healing process and the end result! Fun fact about me is that I have owned many types of pets like horses, cats, chickens, turkeys, hamsters, fish and one dog. Currently, I have two skinny pigs named Vinny and Marcel.
