She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Harvard University in 1975 and her Masters of Science in Nursing from Simmons College in 1997.

"I have worked in many different areas of nursing - general medicine, intensive care, neurology and neurosurgery. I took a work-study course in renal nursing in 1983 where I cared for chronic kidney disease patients on dialysis and with transplants, both adult and pediatric. I have been in nephrology ever since - working with both acute and chronic hemodialysis patients. My nephrology experience includes being the clinical leader in an inpatient acute hemodialysis unit, managing an outpatient dialysis clinic, and currently I am a dialysis access coordinator. I love my role here, as I am able to continually work with and care for renal patients (my passion) and be part of a great team of clinicians." -Louise
