LC: I started the day before Halloween, so I was excited to confuse all of my new coworkers the next day with my costume.

BH: What motivates you?
LC: My colleagues and our patients make me strive to work hard and do better. This is all for them. I love the fact that, at our core, we strive to give our patients what they want and need. Our innovations are all thought of with them in mind.
