Attending Lincoln Memorial University- DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (LMU-DCOM) in Tennessee, for medical school, was an easy choice for her as she relished the family-like, caring environment she experienced during her interview process. During her time at LMU-DCOM, she continued her community outreach by volunteering at various free clinics and food drives. Dr. LaPrade’s family grew in Tennessee as she got married and adopted four dogs that she spoils rotten. She also began working with local shelters and has had the privilege to foster more than fifty animals throughout her years in medical school.

She loves the challenge each day brings, and the variety seen daily. Dr. LaPrade is beyond excited to start her residency at Halifax Health as she felt an instant connection with this supportive and robust program.
