Laura obtained two associate degrees from North Central – an Associate of Arts with an emphasis in Psychology and an Associate Degree in Nursing. She has now, completed graduate school and is working full-time in the business side of the health care industry, “NCMC is very close to my heart and even brings happy tears to my eyes when I think about where I started and how far I have come. Any chance I get to mentor people toward NCMC, I take it. NCMC allowed me the opportunity to blossom from a young woman into a successful health care leader and entrepreneur.”
