Her personal and professional beliefs and actions are a good fit for the Simkin Centre’s mission, vision and philosophy. Cerqueti’s grandmother was a resident at the Simkin Centre. She is married and has three children. The entire family is well acquainted with the Simkin Centre.
Laurie Cerqueti is excited to start her new position here and the Simkin Centre is very excited to welcome her. She will start officially on January 14, 2019.
