Dr. Laura Gibson graduated from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 2019. Born a Hoosier, she grew up in Clinton, Indiana. She earned her undergraduate bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville.
After college, Laura moved to Virginia Beach to finally live with her husband, Jacob, while he was stationed there on active duty in the US Navy. After transitioning to the Reserves, the Gibson’s relocated to Illinois for Laura to pursue a veterinary medicine degree while Jacob joined the law enforcement community. They have finally settled in Brown County-a long-time dream reached!
While in vet school, Laura developed interests in soft tissue surgery, ophthalmology, and preventative medicine. She also enjoys shelter medicine and was fortunate enough to spend a month in New York City as an extern with the ASPCA, which she found very rewarding. Laura loves to spend time with her husband, her family, and friends, especially outdoors. She likes to go hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, swimming, and playing tennis. She also loves to cuddle with her three fur children: her childhood kitty, Jasmine (her 9th birthday present), her sweet Manchester Terrier, Diesel, and her goofy Doberman, Granger!
