In Home Care
Founder & CEO

She has worked with clients across a spectrum of life stages and believes in tailoring her approach to each client’s individual needs. She has a natural affinity for caregiving and a whole heart for helping others.
Throughout Laurianne’s diverse caregiving career, she has come to recognize the core truth that the most enduring rewards in life are often found outside of one’s self. Whether providing round-the-clock care to clients of an advanced age, or spending a few hours helping a client prepare for their week, she knows how to balance the material requirements of the work and the emotional investment necessary to be a gifted care provider. Knowing that her clients can depend upon her to help create beautiful moments in their lives remains a great source of professional and personal satisfaction.
Along with the knowledge she has acquired firsthand, Laurianne has received extensive on the job training from nurses as well as physical and occupational therapists from Asante Ashland Community Hospital and Providence Medford Medical Center. Working closely with medical staff has given her a broad understanding of direct caregiving, in addition to deepening her care management education. She has learned that the success of a care team not only depends upon the quality of each team member, but also on the harmony of everyone’s role. Her detail oriented approach to ensuring this accord has provided her clients, and the entire care team, peace of mind.
Laurianne loves learning and considers herself a lifelong student. She has excelled in her formal education while working full-time and holds an Associate of Arts from Seattle Central Community College. Dedicated to continuing education, she is currently completing her Bachelor of Applied Science in Business Management from Southern Oregon University. After earning her bachelor’s, she plans to pursue a Master of Arts in Gerontology from the University of Southern California. She views both of these degrees as a way to hone the skills necessary to be a gifted caregiver, geriatric care manager, businesswoman, and humanitarian.
At heart, Laurianne will always be an artist. She relishes finding slices of time to journal and reflect upon the teachings of the day. She is also a seasoned songwriter and guitar player who has been composing music and performing for over 15 years. She considers sharing these passions, and learning the interests of her clients, one of the greatest rewards of caregiving. She looks forward to building such mutually compassionate relationships with you and your family.
