Meet Our Team

Dr. Laurie Kutch is a 1992 graduate of the University of Florida (Go Gators!). She has been practicing veterinary medicine in Arlington since that time. In addition to her husband, Tim, their twin daughters, Haley and Jordan, and sons, Caleb and Noah, she also lives with three cats, three papillions, one yorkie, and a horse. In her free time, she enjoys reading, sewing and cross-stitching. In the last eight years she has also discovered the sport of triathlon, so don’t be surprised if you see her running or biking down the road or swimming at the Mansfield Natatorium. Dr. Kutch decided she wanted to be a veterinarian when she was nine years old and never wavered from that dream. She enjoys working with all varieties of pets from rats and ferrets to cats and dogs.
