Working as a certified prosthetist/orthotist (CPO) in Lakeland, FL, Laurentine works hard to bring people comfort in knowing they can accomplish their goals. In high school, Laurentine’s guidance counselor asked her what she wanted to do, and her answer was perfectly POP – putting things together, working with her hands and helping people through rehabilitation. Prosthetics and orthotics is the intersection Laurentine was looking for and she enjoys helping people transition from a position of hurt to a feeling of independence. For Laurentine, working with kids is where she shines. She likes that her job involves connecting with her patients in unique ways and making sure that their goals are her goals.
