Dr. Laura Nichols is originally from south Alabama. She has also lived in both Tennessee and Virginia prior to ending up in Maryland.
Dr. Nichols received her Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from Virginia State University. After graduation, she worked in multiple veterinary practices as a veterinary nurse before applying to veterinary school, gaining invaluable experience. She continued her career in animal health, and graduated from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine.
After graduation, Dr. Nichols completed a one-year rotating internship at Friendship Hospital for Animals, a 24-hour critical care facility in Washington, DC. She then stayed on staff at Friendship as an emergency care doctor before joining the team at Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care.
Dr. Nichols has special interest in preventative care, emergency medicine, and feline medicine.
Outside of work, Dr. Nichols enjoys attending concerts, hanging out with her husband and their various pets and reading a good book with a cat (or two) in her lap. She turned into an Auburn fan, much to the dismay of her dad (War Eagle!).
