In her free time, you can find Laura hanging out with her husband and daughter. They love to travel and visit new places. She is always in search of their next destination. One-by-one, Laura is working toward crossing off items on her long bucket list. Outside of travel, Laura enjoys shopping, going on walks with her dog, going to the movies, and during the Vegas summers, you can find her by the pool with a cold cocktail.
