Laine followed in the footsteps of her mother, who is a nurse at an OSF HealthCare family practice.
She said her main goal during an appointment is to meet the needs of her patients while maintaining a personalized plan to their care.
“I am an open, empathetic individual who will get to know you as a person and not just as a patient,” she said. “I chose family practice because it allows me to continue to provide comprehensive care from ‘nose to toes,’ and it provides me with an opportunity to get to know my patients on a more personal level.”
When not working, she enjoys running, reading and learning about history. She also loves living the country life with her family’s cows and chickens.
