Team Tampa

Jamie DiLorenzo, APRN

“I find working with this population to be both challenging and rewarding. I feel getting to know a patient and seeing them in their home environment gives me a better picture of the patient’s overall health. This allows me to make more impactful decisions focused on quality care and improvement in quality of life. Taking my practice outside of the office and directly to the patient allows me to develop a stronger patient/family relationship and makes me a better, more effective, nurse practitioner.” —Jamie DiLorenzo, APRN

Heather Schlau, DNP

“Making a difference in people’s lives was my goal from an early age. A number of events in my life, including growing up in a family-owned assisted living community, a career in acute, inpatient‐based care of older adults and graduating top of my class at University of South Florida’s Adult‐Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Program with a doctoral research project in transitions of care, led me here. I believe this is why the love, compassion and empathy I have for the older population has grown!” —Heather Schlau, DNP

“I love waking up on a Monday morning knowing that I get to start another week doing what I absolutely love. I am passionate about caring for the needs of this country’s most valuable, yet most vulnerable, resource: our elderly. What makes my day even better is being able to work closely with families as well as community staff to provide the highest level of care.” —Laura Williams
