LAWRENCE L. GENSLER, M.D., FACG

genslerI have two wonderful sons, Chris and Will, who I am quite proud of as they have both recently graduated from LSU and are pursuing careers in business/law and medicine/science. When away from work I enjoy watching sporting events (LSU and the Saints of course), boiling crawfish, and cooking outdoors.  I spend as much time as possible fishing with my boys in Southeast Louisiana.   I am an avid gardener and spend much of my free time tending both a summer and winter vegetable garden.  I also am an amateur birder and enjoy bird watching at home and afar, which has afforded me the opportunity to travel to many unique destinations.  Without a doubt my most rewarding out of the office endeavor is working with the Catherine Farnsworth Gensler Foundation which is associated with the Northshore Community Foundation.  The Northshore Community Foundation is rapidly becoming one of the most important assets to the Northshore integrating charitable giving and community need.  The “Catherine Foundation” was created in memory of my daughter and enables us to remember the goodness that Catherine embodied and at the same time help create opportunities that make our community a better place to live.
