I have known Laura for 3.5 years and worked along side her during night shifts for 9 months. During those months I came to see Laura was very passionate about care and the quality of care provided. She was popular with residents and staff and always made time to listen to others concerns.
I enjoyed my shifts with Laura immensely as I knew she valued team work and shifts ran smoothly under her leadership even during stressful situations.
