Mary Lawson

Assistant Hospital Administrator

Mary was born and raised in a very small town of Triangle Lake, Oregon and attended the same school K-12th, total kids in the whole school 150. She grew up on a summer campground for youth on Triangle Lake, where her father was the caretaker of 200 acres and maintained every building on the property including the lakefront. Every summer when the new campers arrived she had so much fun meeting kids from all over the country. She had the best childhood.

Mary went into banking immediately after graduation and worked in that industry for 15 years, starting at Siuslaw Bank then Pacific Continental Bank and enjoyed the world of finance. When given the opportunity to join Rick’s team at Emergency Veterinary Hospital, Mary immediately fell in love with the industry. It was certainly a change in scenery!

When Mary’s not working she loves to hang out with her husband, three grown children, and of course their dogs, ESPN (Schnoodle) and Blitz (Chiweenie). Mary’s hobbies also include traveling, flying, and skydiving! She loves the outdoors and the Pacific Northwest.
