Hospital ManagerLauren Mastrogiovanni
School: California University Los Angeles, MBA/MHA
Lauren is new to the New Orleans area, having moved from Southern California in the Fall of 2010, though she was born and raised in New York. Lauren has been involved in animal rescue her entire life (she performed her very first rescue at age 7, a stray kitten that she named Ashes), but this is her first foray into veterinary medicine, having spent her career in human health care. Lauren recently brought home a prancing puppy named Ray (breed mix still unknown), an impulse acquisition from the Jefferson Parish Shelter where she had gone simply to donate some equipment...they really do choose us, not the other way around!
