Laura’s desire to help people has spanned over 20 years. Her medical career began at a holistic acupuncture practice where her curiosity for alternative medicine peaked. She then wanted to experience the traditional side of patient care, so she completed courses at Oakton Community College and became a certified phlebotomist. She assumed a position within the NorthShore University Health System and quickly became the lead phlebotomist due to her skill and passion for patients receiving the ultimate care. After 13 years working at Skokie Hospital Laura decided to pursue a new career journey. Always fascinated in integrative ways of helping people feel better, Laura joined the team at FreshSkin Medical Spa and Wellness Center to further her knowledge. Laura has been living in the North Shore of Chicago for over 25 years. She loves being outside with her two dogs, watching history and crime documenterias, and cooking with her family.
