Laurel Shepard '75
Laurel Shepard graduated from Westminster College in 1975 with a BA in human relations. She soon returned to school graduating in 1977 from Weber State as an RN. Laurel has worked mostly in the surgical nursing specialty and currently is the clinical director and risk manager of the St. Mark’s Hospital’s outpatient surgery center. In this role, she leads a team of nurses and the skills she learned in the human relations program at Westminster are even more relevant. Teamwork, leadership, and communication are just as important as ethical awareness and critical thinking as Laurel works with her team to reduce and prevent risk exposure at the hospital.
