In the 1990’s, Laura worked in the mental health field as a supervisor at a non-profit, short term counseling clinic. She later moved to work at a family center as a parenting group education coordinator. But, Laura found her niche when she began teaching classes on violence and anger, eventually bringing the curriculum and teaching it within her own community. Added to all this, Laura also earned a teaching certification for grades K-12 and taught as a substitute teacher at Catholic elementary schools as well as teaching preschoolers in both typical and special needs classrooms.
She is a mother of two teenage children and the survivor of an abusive marriage which she ended in 2002. Subsequently, she has written curriculums for her own training programs on Family Violence and Perpetration. Since then, Laura has been passionate in her mission to educate women, strengthening their self-esteem and helping them to recognize and make use of the options available to them to escape and recover from abusive situations.
As well as being a writer and educator, for the past eleven years Laura has served as the Director of Volunteers at a senior living campus in Minneapolis, MN. Her motto is: Volunteers make the world go round.
