Brandy has been with Oakley Veterinary since 1992 and spent many years as a nurse. In 2004, we felt her skills were hiding in the back and she joined our front office team. We feel that her experience in both the front and back of the office help insure that our clients and pets get the best loving care possible.

She shares her life with 2 dogs, Beautty and Sammy, one cat and an array of exotic pets. She enjoys falconry when not spending time with her puppies.

Laurie's dog, Molly was 7 weeks old when she started working here and she is now 9 years old. They have two kitties, Laila and Marti and Laurie recently became the proud owner of an Arabian mare, Santena. It has been 30 years since she owned an Arabian horse.

When not helping clients and pets at OVMC, Laurie enjoys fishing and camping and horseback riding. Maybe the most fun is watching her San Francisco Giants play baseball. Go Giants!
