Dr. McLaughlin is a Lancaster native who did a little bit of traveling before landing back here in 2014. She graduated from UNH in 1996 with a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry, ended up in Oklahoma working as a veterinary technician and then graduated from Oklahoma State University in 2003 with her veterinary degree. When she moved back here, she worked in various emergency vet hospitals throughout the state before opening Woodlands in 2018.  She has a special interest in feline medicine, although she loves dogs too.

She lives with 3 cats – Boo, Talen and Seamus and 2 dogs – Fergus and Kashi. In her spare time she likes to kayak and build legos. You can view some of her creations througout the clinic.

She graduated from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst with a degree in Equine Industries (see also, degree in cleaning stalls) and is also a Certified Pharmacy Technician.

She lives with her husband, 3 cats – Bo, Cricket and Rory; and ferrets – Aspen and Ginny. Rory comes to work with her, so you may see him running around. The ferrets also occasionally visit the clinic. Emma has 2 horses – Bella and Charade, who don’t live with her.
