Healthcare for a Woman, by a Woman


Meet Lauren



IMG950376As a woman and a mother, I understand how important it is to have a connection with your medical provider in a comfortable and relaxed environment where you’re not just another name or number.

Two decades ago, I started pursuing my nursing career volunteering as a candy striper at a hospital followed by 8 years of college, where I was consistently ranked at the top of my class, on the Dean’s List and in the Honor Society.  The 4 separate college degrees I obtained, combined with a broad array of hospital and private practice work experience, culminated in my Board Certification as a Family Nurse Practioner.  Over the years and broad work experience, I developed a strong passion for providing personal health care where I can spend the time to carefully listen to my patients needs and concerns and provide them a comprehensive health care solution.
