Lory started her career in veterinary medicine during her senior year of high school, when she was trained as a technician in the laboratory and as a surgical tech by the top veterinarians in Miami for 8 years. Lory studied Laboratory Animal Science at the University of Miami, obtaining credentials in Laboratory Animal Science with the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS). Ensuring laboratory animals are humanely treated and research is useful, she went on to be President of the Florida Branch. She advanced into Microbiology and immunology at UM. After 12 years in research, she returned to veterinary medicine part time while raising her three children, then returned full time to advance her career into practice management and outreach.
She loves learning and helping fellow pet parents and has a passion for helping others. Lory continues her research and love for science as a Quality Manager for a national Birth Tissue Donor Program. Her favorite scientific achievement is taking part in building AmnioVet, a company that uses processed amniotic tissue for wound repair, regeneration, and surgical procedures in veterinary medicine where traditional wound healing fails or is thought to be impossible.
Lory loves to travel and has combined that passion with her career. For over 20 years, Lory has been educated and involved in all aspects of veterinary management and medicine, continually seeking knowledge to advance her career and help anyone along her path. She is now a consultant for veterinary practices to improve their protocols and procedures as well as their outreach. She joins us to help build the Vet Tech Division, which will provide the very best at-home Health care for pet parents and their precious pets when all else seems to be unmanageable.
She also runs a high-volume, low-cost mobile spay neuter clinic for community and foster programs around Miami, volunteers as a surgical technician, traveling to different countries to help less fortunate cities provide the veterinary care their people need for their pets.
