This year, the Northeast Ohio Nurse Practitioners (NEONP) is pleased to present the Annual Nurse Practitioner of the Year award to an NP who we feel embodies the spirit of true and selfless patient care.
Laura started on her path to becoming a Nurse Practitioner at Huron Road Hospital School of Nursing. She earned her BSN at Ursuline College, her MSN and CNS at Akron University, and received a post Master’s Certificate as an Adult NP from Ursuline College. As she was doing this, she volunteered at Faith Wellness and Pregnancy Center as well as donating her time to several other inner city health promotion events. She continues to volunteer her time as an NP to the undeserved population She has also served in several international health care experiences in such places as Ethiopia, South Africa, Mozambique and, most recently, in Guatemala.
She is employed as a Hospice NP and is actively working on a certificate in Spiritual Ministry so that she may work in the Women’s Ministry of her church.
She has participated in research to better nursing efficacy and improve patient care experiences at Case Western and Metrohealth Medical Center. Laura gives back to the nursing community by guest lecturing at several educational institutions, as well as mentoring NPs and medical students.
She has dedicated her nursing career to rehabilitating people back to their full potentials, and plans to focus on developing her counseling abilities to better serve people in all their needs.
