Laura joined the Saratoga Springs campus in October 2016. She brings an eclectic blend of education and work experience to New Haven. She graduated from BYU with a BA in Humanities, and a minor in Art History. The plan was either Law school, or to become a Museum Curator in Greek and Egyptian art and antiquity. She has since then been a museum Docent, Sales Manager, Loss Prevention Manager, a magazine Fashion Contributor, Special Education Aide, a Project Manager for a community management company, and a foster mom.
Laura has been married for 25 years, and has 3 amazing kids. She enjoys spending time with her family hiking in Moab, surfing at Zuma Beach in California, or being known in the neighborhood for their over-the-top Halloween costumes and outside trick-or-treating festivities. Laura is an avid reader, and enjoys running half marathons, which is her therapy of choice. Laura also loves anything about nutrition and holistic living! If you see Laura at her desk eating spinach, apples, chicken, nuts, grains, and protein shakes, she isn’t dieting—she actually LOVES these things!? But her Achilles heel? Chocolate bridge mix!
Laura is a huge proponent of the family and values based New Haven treatment program. She enjoys interacting with and watching the girls and their families as they grow and progress on their journey in treatment.
