       Laura Catherine has grown up around Bocage Animal Hospital. As a veterinarian's daughter, compassion for animals has always come as second nature to her. She graduated from LSU in 2017 with a degree in Animal Science with a concentration in technology. Currently she is enjoying her time at the clinic and plans to stay with her Bocage family as long as possible! She has 1 cat, Kit, and 4 dogs, Rock, Benelli, Hazel and Ranger. 





          Jena grew up in Dutchtown, Louisiana and moved to Baton Rouge to pursue a Biology Degree from Louisiana State University. Since then she has obtained a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences; she is now pursuing a career in veterinary medicine and would like to one day open her own clinic as an exotic D.V.M. To reach her goals, Jena has multiple pending veterinary school applications. Her love for animals developed at an early age and her furry companions inspired her career decisions. She and her boyfriend have four pets combined: one dog (Dixie), a cat (Silas), and two parakeets (Joey and Nikko). Jena enjoys volunteering at Cat Haven, playing recreational soccer, and spending time with loved ones during her free time.
