She is a faithful member of Morningside Church and has volunteered extensively for local school programs, serving as a charter member of the Project Graduation Board.
Laura has devoted her life to many mediums and expressions of art, such as Tole painting, clothing and decor painting, as well as seashell art. Many homes in Stuart are graced with her beautiful seashell designs.
