Lauren Calandro-Swan

Veterinary Customer Care Coordinator/Marketing /Accounts

Lauren joined us in December 2017 and made a huge impact from the word go. She brought with her a wealth of skills and experience. Having grown up working in the family business, she was a natural when it comes to client service. She took this ability further with a number of years at Flight Centre looking after a large team of staff as well as her own clients.

At work, Lauren sees customer service as her number one focus and is a huge believer in looking after people. Although she came with no direct veterinary experience, she’s a rapid learner and, from the start, was a massively positive influence on what was already a brilliant team on the front desk.

As befits an ex Flight Centre employee, she has indulged this bug by travelling to multiple destinations including Europe, UK, USA, China, The Maldives, Vietnam, NZ and (her favourite) Sri Lanka)!She assures me that list is neither exhaustive nor finished, although she’ll have to overcome a recently acquired fear of flying. Future travel adventures may have to involve more road and sea, otherwise!

Lauren is a local girl, having grown up in Gawler and gone to school at Xavier College. She’s married to Kane and they have 2 Japanese Spitz  – Luna and Rocket.  She’s a bit of a self confessed coffee addict, if next time you see her, she’s looking a bit excitable, it probably means one too many coffees has been consumed already!

A major event in Lauren’s life was the arrival of her son Spencer in 2019 – a baby Swan! As Much as she loves Spencer, Lauren was delighted to come back to work after a maternity leave of absence.

Lauren has recently taken on the role of Marketing and Accounts for the clinic, as well as coordinating the amazing customer care team!

These roles keep her very busy but that’s exactly how she likes it!
