About Laurie

1. I enjoy helping people, I have a genuine concern for others, and their well being. 2. I like the fact that I can make a difference in someones life, It may just be a simple task, but it means a lot to them.3. I've struggled with my weight all my life, over a few years I have lost 110lbs, still some to go, but never give up! 4. I worked as a Dental Assistant for 26yrs, I suffered with severe hand psoriasis for about 18 of those years, the latter part of my career. I also started developing slight hand tremors, that I inherited from my Mother, It made it very difficult to perform certain tasks. I enjoyed the fact that at times when needed, I was able to comfort the patients, just by a simple soothing touch on their arms when they were receiving anesthesia. I'm not going to lie, it's a great feeling to be needed. I had difficult time finding another career, that didn't cost thousands of dollars. I took 8hr course online to get certified, I knew I wanted to stay in Healthcare Field. I was limited because of hand tremors, and chemicals that I had to use. Thank You!
