Combined Adult/Pediatric Hospitalist
Laura spent most of her childhood in South Carolina where she enjoyed summers swimming at the lake or hiking in the NC mountains with her family. With a love of the outdoors, she went off to Arkansas for college where she was a member of the women’s swim team and studied Biochemistry/Molecular Biology and Religion. During college, she also spent two summers doing Alzheimer’s research at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, where she realized her interest in medicine and decided to stay in the Sunshine State for medical school at the University of Florida. She focused on sustainability, health equity, global health, and also fell in love with SEC sports. Outside the hospital, you can find her buying more plants, heading out for a run, biking or paddling with her awesome fiancé Dillon, or hanging out with her Vandy Family. Nashville feels like home now and she can't wait to keep checking off all of the awesome waterfall hikes on her Tennessee bucket list. Member of AOA.
