Hobbies & Interests
Laura has been enjoying long distance running since she was fourteen years old and joined her high school’s varsity cross country team. Since then Laura has participated in several 5K’s, charity walks and runs, and two half-marathons. While not the fasted runner, Laura finds running a wonderful opportunity to relax, focus her energy and meditate.
DIY + Thrift Shopping
You can frequently find Laura in the aisles of Michael’s or Jo-Ann Fabrics looking for the necessary components for her next project. While some of her projects are successful (creating a chalkboard) and others are absolute failure (creating a curtain wire system using tension cable), Laura finds that DIY and thrift shopping allow to use her creativity and problem-solving skills.
Laura enjoys using her cooking skills to create delicious meals for her loved ones. While Laura particularly enjoys making desserts, she also tries to cook healthy dinners and desserts. Her favorite things to cook are a butternut squash and green apple soup, creamy mashed potatoes, cheesecake, and an upside down peach cornmeal cake infused with lavender.
Laura has been an avid reader since she was a child. Laura enjoys classic English literature and picked up a minor in the subject at Ohio State to really examine the area of interest.
