A little about Laura:

I grew up in Stow. Ohio and now live in the Akron area. I have always loved to travel including to Mackay, Queensland, Australia as an AFS exchange student. I have extended family all over the world and the U.S. who I plan to visit in the next several years. I love movies, reading, walking the Summit Metro Parks and yoga. I've been an avid and creative cook since the age of 9. I love our local area for concerts, especially Lock 3 and jazz at BLU Jazz+.
