What is your favorite childhood memory?
Laura- My grandparents live in Ontario so seeing them is always a rare and cherished occasion. I remember on one of our visits when I was around 4 years old my Gram took me out for lunch and let me eat my dessert first. I felt like an extremely lucky little girl! To this day both her and I share that special memory between us.

Laura- Definitely the team I get to work with! These ladies are amazing therapists and incredible human beings.

What do you do when you are not at work?
Laura- I am currently in my last year studying to be an RMT at Grant Macewan University so most of my life is spent either in the classroom or studying. If I’m not doing that then you can find doing me teaching a bellydance class, working on my own bellydance training, or performing.
