Dr. Lau’s husband (also a vet) previously worked in Madison for a number of years and he really enjoyed all the Midwest has to offer. They decided to move over with their two kitties, Axel and Alvin, who are retired blood donors and have now travelled the globe from Australia to Hong Kong to Wisconsin! Aside from spending time with her family and taking endless photos of her cats, she loves cooking, hiking, playing the piano and DIY projects.
