Who's Who at the Rescue

Lauren Abrahamsen, DVM

Spay/Neuter Veterinarian

Lauren grew up in the Hudson Valley in NY before moving to Massachusetts where she attended Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). There she got her Bachelors in biomedical engineering w a concentration in mechanical engineering and minors in Spanish and international studies in 2002 and a Master of Engineering degree in Biomedical Engineering in 2003. During undergrad she started working as a vet tech and that led way to moving to Colorado in 2007 to start vet school at CSU. After graduation Lauren moved to Canada and worked in emergency medicine. Life then took her back to Fort Collins where she worked in general practice for several years, as an emergency response Veterinary Medical Officer for the federal government working with the bird flu outbreak, and then discovered shelter medicine. This is the niche of veterinary medicine that she really enjoys. After 2 years as a shelter vet at a local humane society, she began working for FCCR as their main spay/neuter vet and is having a blast. Outside work, Lauren spends time with her partner Eric and their 3 cats and a dog named Gizmo (he is the dog in the picture... that was the first day they met and a spay/neuter clinic she was volunteering at after his previous owners abandoned him at the clinic. 3 days later Gizmo made the move to Colorado!) Lauren can often be found rafting, camping, seeing live music, gardening, and watching Jeopardy.
