Laura is a coach for the Peak, Apex, and Ascent teams, as well as the Pinnacle team, a special needs team that caters to individuals with developmental disabilities. She has been coaching for 4 years and climbing for 5, and immediately found a connection after her first climbing endeavor in 2010. She loves the personal achievement aspect of climbing, as well as the tight-knit community of people who share in the passion and obsession that both come with the sport.
Laura is currently working on her degree in Occupational Therapy, and understands the importance in proper health. Rock climbing is not just a physical sport, but aids in good mental and emotional health as well. She's been to various crags in the Southeast, and hopes to tackle more climbing areas out West in the next few years.
