Proudly Serving: Lawtons #169, Yarmouth, NS
Position: Home Health Care Manager
Core Value: Get It Done with Passion and Integrity
Laura Pitman calls her workplace “the real deal,” but her Lawtons colleagues and customers feel the same way about Laura. In fact, her nomination form says the number of times she has received employee of the month honours likely can’t be counted. Comments about how this friendly and knowledgeable licensed practical nurse helps others keep rolling into the store, and unsurprisingly, those are also too numerous to list. “Laura has been recognized for taking an interest in a very troubled, elderly couple,” reads one statement. “Your words may very well help to guide them to a better quality of life.” For Laura, her daily goal is simple: “being able to help people.” Laura just wants to help ensure community members get and stay healthy, whether that’s by raising funds for cancer research or giving sandbags to customers for use on icy sidewalks to prevent falls. That’s just Laura, keeping Lawtons real.
