Hi I'm Laura

I'm a mom of 2 boys, a runner, an event planner and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and graduated from the University of Washington. My days are spent being a mom to two active and smart little boys and a wife to my amazing husband. In my spare time I love running early in the morning and am training for my first marathon. Our family is really in to decorating for Halloween and Christmas and our house transforms during fall and winter to match the holiday. I have a great love for music, baking, and watching football. Go Seahawks!

Why I am a Mormon

Nothing can compare to the feeling of peace that I feel by being a member of the church. When I attend church and strive to live my life by the teachings of the gospel everything seems to fall into place. Of course not everything is perfect. Trials definitely do come. We lost our first baby, a sweet baby girl, shortly after she was born and even though that was the most difficult time I've had in my life because we believe that families can be together forever, I was at peace.

How I live my faith

I currently serve in the Young Womens Presidency which means I have the opportunity of working with the youth ages 12 - 18. When I was a youth served in a class presidency and at a young age was on committees which planned activities for the other youth in our area. Having that experience at an early age helped me realize how much I enjoy event planning and now I plan events as a career for work.
