Dr. Nancy Morris received her Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Technology from Oregon Institute of Technology in 1985 where she graduated Magna Cum laude. The American Society of Clinical Pathologists certified her as a Medical Technologist (MT). She received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree in 1990 from Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Morris spent the next year at Angell Memorial Animal Hospital interning in small animal medicine and surgery. The next 7 years were spent in private practice.

In 1997, Dr. Morris returned to Angell and completed her residency in cardiology and she is a board certified Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) in Cardiology.

She has also been active in cardiovascular research. In 2004 she completed a multi-center FDA/CVM clinical trial for a new Phosphododiesterase III inhibitor drug (Pimobendan) to treat congestive heart failure in dogs. She has served as a consultant to biotech, medical device manufactures and pharmaceutical development companies. Her most recent clinical research, prospective screening of 200 Doberman Pinschers to determine the clinical utility of the NT-pro BNP test as a screening tool to detect occult dilated cardiomyopathy, was presented at the 2009 conference of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in Montreal, Canada.

Lauren grew-up at dog shows. She bred and showed Chihuahuas, and also worked for a professional handler for 5 years, showing working and herding breeds. During high school, she worked in the kennel at a veterinary clinic. After finishing her Bachelors degree, she worked as veterinary technician for 3.5 year before returning to school to complete her M.S in Counseling.

Lauren met Dr. Morris while organizing a breeding clearance clinic and started working part-time as a technician in the fall of 2010. While she no longer shows and breeds dogs, she is still active in the dog show community and a member of multiple dog clubs. She is also an AKC licensed judge for Junior Showmanship and some toy breeds.

Prior to coming on board full-time at MVCS, she worked for the Center for Public Policy and Social Research at Central Connecticut State University as a Research Specialist. She lives in Connecticut with her husband, son, two cats (Brutus and Nefertiti) and German Shepherd (Magnolia).
