- Words from Co-workers and patients

Working at St. Luke is unlike any other place I have worked in my 32 years as a lab tech. We are family! Patients are truly viewed as people and I love people! When someone walks into our lab, I see a person in need of lab services and an opportunity to make a difference in the brief moments I get to spend with them. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, camping and laughter. The Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi is my standard of operation.

Lord make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred let me sow love
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is darkness, light
And where there is sadness, joy
O divine master grant that I may
not so much seek to be consoled as to console
to be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love
For it is in giving that we receive
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned
And it's in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Amen. - Words by Lori Smith

St. Luke would like to thank Lori for her commitment and dedication!
