     Office Manager:

Laurie : Laurie is our Office Manager.  Circle of Life has grown so much in the past few years that Dr Cook-Breeze decided to hire an Office Manager to help with the paperwork. This will allow Dr Cook-Breeze to concentrate on the "Doctor" part of her job more and free her up to spend more time with her patients and clients.  Laurie has 20 years of experience in the veterinary field working as a kennel worker, assistant, receptionist, technician and an office manager.  She is the mommy to dogs, Ridick, Percy and Prudence, 3 cats, Trinity, Dexter and Panfur.  She has 3 grand babies named Ethan, Maddie and Adien.  In her free time, she enjoys fishing, gardening and attending Classic Car Shows with Rick.
