Laura Berkey - Animal Care Assistant
Laura was born in Silverton, Oregon, but moved to Prineville when she was six years old. She graduated from Crook County High School, and from there has attended both COCC and Chemeketa Community College. Throughout her life, Laura has always loved animal and knew that she wanted to work with them some day.
She has worked with several different boarding kennels and grooming shops including the Pet Village in Salem, Oregon where she gained experience handling police and military dogs. She has also been grooming dogs for the past ten years.
Laura has a special interest in holistic medicine and animal nutrition. Specifically, she is interested on focusing on species appropriate diets and the roles they play in disease prevention. Laura says that while working at Redmond Vet she most enjoys getting to spend time with many different animals and having the opportunity to expand her knowledge about them.
At home, Laura has three dogs (Sawyer, Quentin, and Chibby), three cats (Meece, Boo, and Kiko), three rabbits; and enjoys hiking with her dogs, swimming, and woodworking.
