Born on Vancouver Island, Laura lived in many parts of BC with her family growing up. Upon graduating & spending a year abroad with Rotary International, Laura returned to the island to complete her BBA in Marketing & International Business at VIU, and now calls Nanaimo home.
Laura’s professional experience has always centered on customer service, starting with an assistant management position at Starbucks in downtown Vancouver. Laura then managed two successful Enterprise Rent a Car locations in Duncan & Nanaimo, where she won numerous awards for exceptional customer service & sales growth. Laura’s work ethic, energy and professionalism made her a natural fit for the real estate industry, and led to her recruitment by John Cooper as an unlicensed executive assistant.
A highly-valued original team member, Laura is key to the smooth day to day functioning of The John Cooper Group. She is also a passionate, community-minded individual, who donates her time to the United Way, as well as Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Central Vancouver Island. When she is not at work or volunteering, Laura can often be seen enjoying the beautiful Vancouver Island trails with her golden retriever, "Mo".
