Laura is celebrating 21 years with OSS!
Laura was raised in Angola, Indiana, and her parents and siblings still live in that area. She moved to Fort Wayne when she graduated from IPFW in 1997 with a certificate in Dental Assisting. Laura worked for a general dentist for 2 years before joining our team in 1999. Laura started her career with OSS as a Clinic Tech, but she transitioned into the role as our Scheduling Coordinator in June 2012 when she relocated to a Chicago suburb.
Laura works remotely from home and helps create the template that we use to schedule our patients. She also handles our team schedules. This means she is the one who gets text messages at 4 AM (the curse of Illinois time vs. Indiana time) when we are sick and has to rearrange schedules to be sure we are fully staffed to properly care for our patients. Can you imagine trying to coordinate schedules for 29 women???
Laura is a wife to Tim (they will be celebrating 20 YEARS of marriage in May!) and they have two children. Her oldest is finishing her freshman year of college at the University of Alabama and her son is finishing his freshman year of high school. She’s also a dog mom to a Malshi, Maggie.
Laura is such a fun team member! We don’t get to see her in person as often as we’d like, but when we do she’s constantly making us laugh! She’s such an important part of our team and we appreciate her! Congrats, Laura, on 21 YEARS with OSS!
