About Laurel

As a Family Nurse Practitioner, Laurel can deliver high quality expert care to patients across the lifespan. After moving to Arizona in 2008 and serving the Sun City/Sun City West population as a Registered Nurse, the adult and geriatric health became her passion and field of expertise. After graduating from Grand Canyon University as a Family Nurse Practitioner, she decided to continue her work in the adult and geriatric communities. She is driven to provide high quality health care to help our community maintain health and prevent illness, as well as improve the quality of life of those she counsels. She describes her role as a Family Nurse Practitioner as giving her, "the unique ability to reach a variety of people on a personal level as a primary provider to achieve a united goal. My patients are my family and as such, they are treated with respect, compassion and kindness and a fervent desire to do my best for them." She and her husband have three young children and a dog, Olaf. The family loves to unwind at the park on a sunny day, ride bikes, go for walks and to try to get things to grow in the backyard vegetable garden.
