Laurie is CEO of Swift Passport Services in Chicago.  In addition to obtaining expedited passports and travel visas for the general public and corporations, Swift also registers all willing customers onto the National Organ Donor Registry.  Their goal is to register 2000 people in 2016.  Swift has also partnered with ORGANize to help facilitate a study that will help determine the most effective way to ask people to become organ donors.


Laurie is one of the original members of Northwestern Medicine’s Transplant Advisory Council, that powers Transplant Village.  Our inspired group of organ recipients, donors and their families is united in our mission to support the future of organ transplantation at Northwestern Medicine while connecting and supporting the transplant community.

Laurie is eager to make an impact in the transplant world, and is not yet sure what that will look like.  She is extremely interested in connecting with people who share her interest in flooding the donor pool, so that nobody has to wait for a life-saving transplant.  You can call her at 312.927.7655.

  1. Hi Laurie!
    I just sent you a comment, and hope that you received it.
    If not, please let me know and I’ll te-type it.

    I wanted to let you know that my business is in forensics & I have dealt with organ and tissue donation companies for the past 10 years on deceased donors.
    I am meeting with the new liaison from Indiana Donor Network on Tuesday in Indianapolis, and will share with them how much your blog touched me.


    • Thanks for your comments Kate, they are my first! Your work sounds extremely interesting, if it ever brings you to Chicago, I would love to meet in person and get a coffee (or water, sounds like you drink a lot of it). Best of luck to you in your journey, and I definitely look forward to following your FB page, and staying in touch. I just found a FB page called The ALODF Donor Support Group- I have found some really interesting information on that page, you should check it out. There are a lot of non-directed donors on the site like us. Take care and stay in touch #1beanpower!


  2. Hi Laurie,
    I just checked out your blog and was very impressed and excited to see how active you’ve been in advocating for living donation. Like you, I’m passionate about the subject and am so looking forward to the Living Donor Rally. I’m really looking forward to meeting you, hearing about your activities–and telling you about the book I’m writing on LKD–with a kidney recipient! (I was also touched to read Kate’s comments here and realize how much has happened in such a short time.) See ya soon. Best, Carol
    P.S. I see we have something else in common–my husband and I love Thailand (we were there just once–so far–in Dec. 2016)!


    • Thanks for the message Carol, and thanks for reading my blog! I would love to hear about your book, and look forward to reading it! There will be 3 other transplant authors at the event, if you don’t know them, I bet they would be good to network with. See you later this week, I look forward to meeting you too! This is going to be a lot of fun 🙂
