Dr. Laura Smith Lee
Laura joined the RSVC family in early 2021. A native of Seattle, Laura grew up with cats and dogs. She credits their joyful, loving, and eternally forgiving nature as central to her childhood. Being a veterinarian is a fulfillment of her childhood dream of giving back to these earthly angels who have given her so much.
Laura graduated from the University of Glasgow, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Glasgow, Scotland. She has been practicing veterinary medicine for the past 12 years in both General Practice and Emergency Medicine in New Jersey, Texas, Canada, and Washington State.
Laura has a passion for working with owners to make informed decisions for the well-being of their pets.
Before veterinary medicine, Laura was a science educator for Teach for America after graduating from Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts with a Bachelor of Arts in Geosciences.
Laura lives with her husband Tom and two rescue dogs Senta and Petey, all of whom are ruled over by the cat, Duchess Tinton. In their spare time, they love to travel, spend time outdoors and participate in Triathlon races.
