I had the privilege of working with Laura for almost a decade and can attest to the love and care she brought to her patients. A quiet leader, Laura never hesitated to assist others in need and had the uncanny ability of calming an entire room once she walked in. In a nutshell you would be a fool not to trust Laura with your loved ones life. Her beautiful quirky Winnie the Pooh loving sense of humour was never lost to anyone and she was much loved for it. During quieter moments while at work her face would light up while speaking of Jackson (a young toddler); her family were her world. It has been many years since I worked with Laura and my deepest condolences to her family.
