Clinical Practice Facilitator Laura has been honored with the North Oaks
Health System Nurse Excellence Award.
"Surgery can be scary. I find that holding my patient's hand as
we prepare to begin his or her operation can bring a lot of comfort,"
Laura joined North Oaks in 2008 as an Operating Room Circulator and accepted
her current position in 2011. As a Clinical Practice Facilitator, Laura
is responsible for the orientation of new staff to the OR.
She earned a bachelor’s degree in Nursing from William Carey College
in her native New Orleans and belongs to the Association of periOperative
Registered Nurses (AORN).
Laura lives in Springfield with her daughter Maddie Grace, age 9, and
son William, age 12.
Laura aspires to volunteer with Smile Train, an international charity

it comes to advocating for each patient’s health and safety,”
