Lois has over 40 years of experience as a Registered Nurse, and she has been with the Center for Primary healthcare for the last eighteen.

She enjoys caring for patients and her kind attitude contributes a great deal to ensuring that the Center for Primary Healthcare is a warm and welcoming place. Though she helps out with almost all areas of medical management, she is especially involved in making sure that the Coumadin doses for our patients are managed carefully and adjusted properly.

On Thursday–her day off from work at the Center for Primary Healthcare–, Lois devotes her time to James516 Ministries. The ministry was founded in 1998 by Lois and Charlene Proper-Smits. Together, they visit and minister to patients who are sick at home or have been admitted to the hospital.

Before working at the Center for Primary Healthcare, Lois worked on post-op units in various hospitals. She has been happily married for 42 years and is the mother of 2 children and three grandchildren.
