Welcome Laura Carlson
I am very excited and grateful to be joining Village Health Partners at Legacy Medical Village in Plano. Village Health Partners has a team of providers that are committed to helping our patients and community thrive and I am thrilled to become a part of the team. Prior to joining VHP I had the privilege of completing a portion of my clinicals hours as a student and quickly learned that VHP was where I wanted to be. I truly felt at home. The providers and staff at VHP are so welcoming and treat everyone with the upmost respect. I have always been passionate about disease prevention and patient education. I know that at VHP I will have the resources I need to help improve patient outcomes and maintain overall patient health and well-being.
I was born and raised in Garland TX but completed my Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Angelo State University. After graduating with my BSN 8 years ago, I started working on a medical/surgical unit and an Intensive Care Unit. I then transitioned to a busy Cardiac Intensive Care Unit in Plano, TX. During that time, I had the privilege of serving both as a preceptor to new grads and as a charge nurse. After 5 years of bedside nursing care, I decided to go back to school to advance my career and get my Masters in Nursing. I chose Family practice because I really feel passionate about getting to know my patients individually and making a positive impact on their lives and their health. I have recently completed my Master of Science in Nursing at The University of Texas at Arlington.
I now reside in Wylie with my husband and our two wonderful children. My family and I love to spend time out on the lake fishing and tubing. We also enjoy traveling and spending quality time together now that I am out of school.
