Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Laura found her way to Southern California as she followed her heart to UC Irvine to study dance. There she found Pilates as a means to help maintain the physical demands as a dancer. After certifying at Studio Du Corps in Orange County, Laura realized that not only did she have a passion for Pilates, but she also had a need to communicate her knowledge in hopes of helping other people. She is continually studying and learning more about the body. When she is not teaching she finds herself doing yoga, dancing, hiking, running, traveling and spending time with her two sons and husband Eric.
