Laura Brantman-JohnsonNurse Practitioner

    Brief description of your professional expertise/experience/reason for choosing your field:
    I became a nurse practitioner in 2015, and worked in a cardiology practice until I started at KCHC. I am also a volunteer nurse practitioner at a clinic in Racine. I became a nurse in 2011, and decided to continue my nursing education because I saw the need for more primary care providers.

    Why did you choose to work for Kenosha Community Health Center, Inc.?
    I came to KCHC because I really enjoy my volunteer work at the free clinic, and the opportunity to see patients at a community clinic full time was a dream come true. My first nursing job was in Kenosha at the hospital near downtown and the people I served there were great. Kenosha is a really great place.

    Education Background:  
    I graduated with my Masters in Nursing from Alverno in Milwaukee, and am currently working toward my doctorate in nursing which I will complete the summer of 2020.
    I also completed a nursing leadership fellowship through the Duke-Johnson & Johnson Nurse Leadership Program in 2018
