Our most well-traveled team member, Laura combines her design excellence, administrative expertise, and love for the natural world to keep things going at BWD North America.

Laura’s interest in management and the natural world began in the mountains of North Carolina, where she completed a Bachelor of Science in Parks & Recreation management. Itching to see more of the world, she put her administrative skills to use during a very rewarding seven years at Cunard Cruise Lines. Her career at sea was spent on four different ships with colleagues of over 50 nationalities, and took her to more than 200 different ports across more than 80 countries.

After returning to land, Laura completed a degree in Graphic Design while residing in California and then Turks and Caicos Islands. For nearly ten years, her design skills have helped hospitals, banks, and many companies put their best foot forward.

Laura now lives with her family in the Hudson Valley of New York. Together, they enjoy the local beauty and hiking opportunities, and venture farther afield to America’s great National Parks and National Historic Sites whenever possible.
