Meet February’s Volunteer Spotlight: Laura Veckerelli

Written by Lori Carpenter, Director of Volunteers & Events

Volunteers are truly the backbone of our organization! Whether helping in the office, creating angels, lending a hand with our many events throughout the year, or providing companionship to our patients and clients, Mount Evans has been blessed with over 500 dedicated volunteers.

Now, if we want to talk about a POWER VOLUNTEER, that would be our wonderful Laura Veckerelli! Laura has been volunteering with Mount Evans for almost three years and has already devoted more time than most do in a century!Laura and her husband John moved to Evergreen three years ago from Rochester, NY to enjoy an active retirement that includes skiing, hiking, biking and volunteering.

And that is exactly what she is doing. When Laura is not visiting our patients at Life Care Center of Evergreen and Elk Run Assisted Living, she can be found at Wulf Rec Center behind the desk, in the pool, or taking a variety of fitness classes! Laura also volunteers with the Evergreen Chorale and Evergreen Players.

Laura’s loving, caring spirit, as well as her true joy of life is such a gift to our patients. She lightens a room, wherever she goes, and that includes her time in the Mount Evans office. She is family here and we are blessed to have her on our team.
