Lauren – Uptown

My name is Lauren – born and raised in South Florida with beaches and tans and hot, hot days all year round. It was a great place to grow up and also where I learned everything I know about animals. I’ve loved dogs all my life and since high school, I have worked in grooming salons, at a doggy daycare, as a dog walker, at boarding facilities, and even as a highly trained veterinary technician for 6 years. If you have a farm I can muck stalls, feed and corral horses, pigs, goats, and cows as well – courtesy of FFA and 4H clubs, of course.

I have recently moved back to NYC after years away pursuing my education and career. I am thrilled to be back… more than thrilled… giddy?!!  The first thing I did upon my return was to reach out to my old boss Stacia to be a part of the RuffCity team once again. I was lucky enough to meet Stacia and be a part of the RuffCity family from 2012 through 2015 – RuffCity was always the best job that I’ve ever had and I’m over the moon excited to be back at it with my favorite NYC fur-iends 🙂

My passion for all animals, big and small, is greater than ever and I can’t wait to share my love with your pup!
