Dr. Lauren Carey grew up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and graduated from the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 2011. She worked in clinical practice for three years as a small animal and large animal veterinarian before joining the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine in 2014. She enjoys her work at the FDA, but missed the opportunity to interact face-to-face with pets and their owners, and in 2016, she began working at a local veterinary hospital on the weekends. She is excited to be joining Muddy Branch Veterinary Center and her interests include preventive medicine and nutrition.
When not working, she enjoys hiking with her dogs and riding her horse.
