After growing up in the south, attending college in the Midwest, and grad school on the east coast, Laura (along with her husband) moved to Portland to plant roots and raise a family. Laura is the mom of two boys – a 7th grader at Cedar Park and a 3rd grader here at Cedar Mill. As the Secretary of the PTC, Laura enjoys getting to support the Board while brushing up on her note-taking skills. Laura loves being outside and going on long walks all over the Cedar Mill area. If you see her along the road smiling or laughing while on a walk – do not fret – she’s not losing her marbles but only enjoying something funny on a podcast. In her free time, Laura enjoys hiking with her family, reading (mostly fiction), working in her yard, watching TV (with her guilty pleasure being the Bachelor/Bachelorette – including all the tacky spinoffs).
