Laura is a native Mobilian, and proud to #ROWLOCAL with Crew Fitness. She is the first officially certified Crew Fitness coxswain (that’s crew lingo for the person in charge of controlling the boat’s pace and steering by giving commands to the crew).

Laura gracefully balances life as wife to Ched, mother of twins Evan and Ethan (7) and Olivia (6), with her full-time day job, certified registered nurse anaesthetist. She also has a bleeding heart for rescue dogs. #embracethebusylife

An avid runner, Laura values fitness as an integral part of health, happiness, and daily life. At 15 years old, she took her first job as a fitness instructor at the YMCA. Today she returns to her instructor roots as she takes on a regular instructing position as a Crew Fitness cox.
