Dr Lauren Archer
Lauren started caring for animals at a very young age. As a toddler on her grandparents' farm, she "helped" in the yards and roamed the paddocks checking none of the cattle had diarrhoea. Once old enough, she took an after-school job at a vet clinic where she worked until getting into Veterinary Science at the University of Sydney.
Since graduating in 2008, Lauren has gained a broad range of experience. Lauren was a flying vet in the first years of her career. In a tiny plane, she flew between Katherine and the Torres Strait - working with cattle, horses, dogs and cats on remote stations and Indigenous communities. Since leaving the Northern Territory, Lauren has worked in various practices along the Australian east coast including Murwillumbah, Broken Hill, Maffra, and Yeppoon.
In 2019 Lauren opened North Coast Veterinary Services - the best vet for rural animals in the region.
Having grown up on a dairy farm in the Goulburn Valley, he served in the Army before completing a Science degree at University followed by an honors degree in physiotherapy.
Currently a physiotherapist, he plans to establish a physiotherapy practice for both human and animal patients in the near future.
