Case Management Supervisor - Midlands Office
My name is Laura Rogers and I grew up in Lynbrook, NY. I moved down to SC in 1984 to attend USC and graduated in 1988 with a degree in Psychology. I married my husband Mike and moved to Spartanburg to work with adults with mental illness in a clubhouse setting. After transferring back to Columbia in 1991 we started our family and had three boys, Chris, Matthew and Ryan. While a stay at home mom with my sons, I volunteered as a Guardian ad Litem and was a therapeutic foster care provider. Once my boys were grown, I realized it was time for me to re-enter the workforce full time. I worked as a foster care case manager but I knew my calling was to work with individuals with special needs. In September 2016 I joined the Bright Start team as a case manager. I’m thrilled to be in a position of fulfilling my passion while serving families in need. When I’m not at work I can often be found down at the River Walk with my husband walking two of our dogs Wilson and Chi Chi.
