Lawrence Thompson

Director of Strategic Operations

From an early age, Lawrence had a propensity for bringing home what his mother would call “wild beasts:” snakes, baby squirrels, turtles, lizards, frogs, and of course dogs and cats. He didn’t know it at the time, but his passion for animals would come full-circle later in life! Lawrence is proud to now serve as Baycrest Animal Clinic’s Director of Strategic Operations.

Lawrence was born in Nyack, New York and moved to Orlando with his family at the age of 13. He spent the first 18 years of his professional career in sales management, primarily within the health club and wellness industry, before transitioning into corporate sales training and management for the healthcare community. One day, he had a thought: why not use his background in management and training to assist in the betterment of animals’ lives? That’s when he decided to jump headfirst into the world of animal medicine—Lawrence joined the team here at Baycrest Animal Clinic in October of 2016 and hasn’t looked back since.

Lawrence and his wife have eight wonderful children—Galen, Eliana, Jade, Tatiana, Chloe, Ty, T.J., and Gracie—and share their lives with a multitude of pets. They have Lexi, a people-pleasing German Shepherd; Lexi’s son, Harley, who is the best snuggle-buddy to be found anywhere; an aloof cat named Mr. Kitty who runs the household; two kittens who go by Smokey and Cloud; and a smattering of fish.
