Dr. Laurie Tassano was born and raised in Marin County. She decided she wanted to become a veterinarian at a very young age after a vet came to speak to her 3rd grade class on Career Day.

Dr. Tassano did her undergraduate studies at U.C. Davis in Biological Sciences prior to entering their veterinary program. She graduated from the U.C. Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 2004 number one in her class and received the School Medal for Outstanding Academic and Clinical Performance.
