Name: Laura Cousineau.
Library and Pediatrics.
How long at MUSC: Almost 6 years.
What was your first job: I
worked on a horse farm the summer after my first year in college. But
my third full time job is interesting, too: railroad clerk-operator and
If you could change careers, what would
you be doing: There is not a better job in the world than being
a librarian; but, if Obama or McCain asked me to be their vice
president, I would consider it.
How do you stay fit: My friend,
Jennie Arial, and I take a fast 45-minute walk at 5:30 workday
mornings. And I bike to work.
Something people don’t know about you:
Every Tuesday night I lead SafeSpace, the support group for gay,
lesbian, bisexual and transgendered, queer and questioning (GLBTQ)
youth. My daughter came out to me when she was 15, and I’d like to help
make the world a safer place for her and other GLBTQ folks.
How do you feel sharing a name with a
tropical storm/hurricane: Let’s hope we don’t get to the “L”s
What would you do if a
hurricane was approaching and you did not evacuate: I was at home for a category 1, and
that was traumatic enough. I am headed for the mountains if any
hurricane warning is issued.
