Laura Epton, PA-C
Laura grew up in the Northwest and recently moved back after spending time in New York City. She likes being closer to family after having a baby two years ago. As a physican assistant, she has worked in women's health in one capacity or another. Her background is surgical with a primary focus on breast cancer. It is a natural progression to continue in women's health while expanding her surgical skill set. She loves having a direct role in improving her patient's quanlity of life and self-confidence by helping them to return to the activities they enjoy.
Whether at work or on my free time, I enjoy working with my hands and creating things (e.g. scrapbooking, quilling- a type of paper art, origami, home remodeling gardening, and photography). One of my favorite things, though, is being a personal jungle gym for my daughter, Avery.
