Laurie studied at New York University and is a Board Certified Prosthetist-Orthotist. Her special interests include pediatrics and upper extremity prosthetics.
Previously she worked for Shriners Hospital in Philadelphia PA for 8 years.

While her wealth of experience is evidence enough of her amazing ability to serve our patients, it’s also worth mentioning that Laurie has accomplished so much as a woman in a predominantly male-dominated field.
Laurie’s kind demeanor and her ability to understand the needs of our patients can’t be overstated. Her dedication to her patients, passion for the field, and her ability to create connections with those she serves are all reasons we’re proud and grateful to have her as a member of our team.
