Laquita is proud to be a Triple ‘Hoo, having earned three degrees from the University of Virginia: Bachelor of Arts (Major: French, Minor: Biology), Bachelor of Science in Nursing, and Master of Science in Nursing (Adult Health Program). Laquita spent half of her 21-year tenure at UVA Medical Center working as a bedside nurse in critical care and acute care units, and the other half serving on the Medical Center Management Team.
Delivering quality, patient-centered care, as well as leading and supporting clinical teams in this endeavor, has always been Laquita’s passion. She became the first Nurse Manager of UVA Transitional Care Hospital, where she developed unit-based, standard operating procedures for this startup facility and opened the door to the first patient in August 2010.
In June 2012 Laquita joined Ambulatory Care Services, for which she spent nearly a decade managing clinic operations, while ensuring regulatory compliance, team recruitment, and staff training and development. In her various leadership roles, particularly as Director of Primary Care and Psychiatry Clinics, Laquita developed strong, collaborative relationships with interdepartmental colleagues and served on numerous UVA Health committees to ensure Ambulatory representation.
Laquita joined Population Health in October 2022 as the Director of Clinical Care Services. In this new role, Laquita leads the Population Health clinical team to ensure excellence in patient care, compliance and policy, clinical operations, remote patient monitoring utilization, and cross-collaboration throughout the Medical Center, UVA, UVA-Wise, and UPG. Additionally, she drives continuous performance improvement efforts for all clinical programming.
