Laura began her pursuit of a career in healthcare after graduating from University of California, Davis. She started as a nursing assistant and then entered nursing school, where she developed a passion for caring for people and their families. Her career as a Registered Nurse has primarily been in pediatric and adult Intensive Care Units, where she gained extensive knowledge in practicing the art and science of nursing. Being a nurse, and now an advanced practice nurse, is a role she feels very privileged to hold. Laura views primary care as an opportunity to enhance her patients' quality of life in all aspects, not just their physical health. She highly values building relationships with her patients based on trust, compassion, and family-centered care in her daily practice.
