Lauren Ybarra

Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Lauren always loved being around animals, but it wasn’t until she was pursuing a degree in nursing when she put two and two together and quickly pivoted to veterinary medicine. She received her degree at VTI of Houston where she began her 10 years of experience in settings of General practice, Equine, Specialty, Research, and Emergency/Critical Care. 

Outside of UrgentVet, Lauren can be found being around the water, going anywhere that has live music, and spending time with her friends, family, and her pets – Ava (American Bulldog), Steve (Dachshund mix), and Denver and Donnie (two domestic shorthairs). 

Lauren’s favorite part of her job is leading the team of UrgentVet – Meyerland and helping the cats and dogs of the community.
