About me

I'm a Geriatric Nurse Practitioner with over 20 years of experience as a healthcare provider with an emphasis on geriatrics, palliative care, and wound care. I began my career in nursing to provide compassionate care, guide patients, and improve quality of life as older adults age. 

A favorite quote of mine is “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” My hope is to make others feel heard and well cared for. 

I was born and raised in Chicago and made my way to California for the abundant sunshine and lack of snow and ice. I enjoy music, concerts, and walking while enjoying the beautiful sights of San Diego.

What their patients are saying:
“The care I receive from my NP-C Laura is some of the best primary care I have received. She is thorough and caring and I feel confident to recommend her to other community residents.”
“Laura responded to my questions immediately and came to my villa for an in-person meeting. She explained my diagnosis and her recommendations. She is very competent and has my best interest at heart.”
"Laura’s care and attention were truly wonderful. She is so kind and makes me feel like I’m her only patient."
