WHO IS LAURA LAGANA?

From Chicken Soup for the Volunteer's Soul

Who Is Laura Lagana?

Laura Lagana is an author, speaker and registered nurse who delights in sharing real-life, personal experiences and healthy inspiration. Since the age of fifteen, she has been a volunteer. During her junior year in high school, a friend persuaded Laura to volunteer as a hospital candy striper. Torn between pursuing a career in nursing or journalism, she thought the hospital volunteer experience would help her decide.

Four years later, she graduated from the Bryn Mawr Hospital School of Nursing and began working in the intensive-care unit of a Wilmington, Delaware area hospital. Within months, Laura met and married her soul mate, Tom.

In early 1997, after years of frequent corporate travel, Laura and Tom became business partners. Together they attended Jack Canfield’s facilitation skills seminar in California in July—the catalyst that transformed both their lives.

Following her lifelong passion for writing, she began assisting Tom in his work as coauthor of Chicken Soup for the Prisoner’s Soul in August 1997. After raising two sons and welcoming a grandson, Laura savors the privilege of working with her best friend, Tom.

Laura’s stories have been published in Chicken Soup for the Couple’s Soul, Chicken Soup for the Prisoner’s Soul, Chicken Soup for the Nurse’s Soul and Chicken Soup for the Soul Christmas Treasury. In addition, she is author and editor of Touched by Angels of Mercy, an inspirational anthology about nurses, patients and caregivers.

She is grateful for her volunteer experiences as surgical liaison for Christiana Care Health System, medical narrator for the Division for the Visually Impaired, facilitator for the American Cancer Society (Skin Cancer Prevention Program), speaker for the Arthritis Foundation, cantor and choir member, lunchtime parochial school nurse, classroom reading aide and library assistant.
