About our Sales Associate Laura Van Slyke 


Laura’s favorite activity is reading children’s books to her family members.  It all started when she was expecting her first born daughter, Mary Magdalene.  Today, she and her husband Daniel live in Roanoke, Texas, where they have been raising 4 girls and 3 boys, ages 19, 16, 15, 13, 9, 7 and 5.  Laura loves the universality of the Catholic Faith as she was raised overseas and has had the opportunity to become fluent in French and Spanish.  She attended the University of Dallas, earned a BA in languages, and then went on to earn and BS in Nursing from the University of Detroit Mercy and has worked in a variety of settings including Medical Surgical Nursing, Post-Anesthesia Care, Maternal Newborn Care and a Nursing Home.  When she isn’t working she can be found sitting in a rocking chair hoping one of her younger children will come sit with her and read a children’s book to her.
