When you come into Dr. Cartwright’s office you’ll be greeted by Laureen’s friendly face. Laureen has worked the reception desk for 16 years. She loves the people she works with the patients and their parents. She will ensure that your appointments are well organized and fit perfectly with your schedule. Laureen is from Stowe Township and has lived in McMurray for 26 years with her family and their beloved Jack Russell, Maggie. She enjoys yoga, gardening and spending time with family.
Susan, or “Sue” as we like to call her, is the other member of our fantastic front desk team. When you call our office to schedule your appointments, she’ll help you find a time that’s just right for you. A Pittsburgh native, Sue has been with us for more than 10 years, and she just loves that her job allows her to meet new people every day.
When she’s not helping people at work, Sue likes to bike, walk, do Zumba, and spend time with her husband, two children, two grandchildren, and her cat.
