Laura’s first tandem skydive was in September of 2012 as a birthday present to herself. This was always something she wanted to do and finally acted on the dream to skydive! She fell in love and returned for her second tandem a month later, then trained in the first AFF jump course offered the following spring to get her A License. That first season Laura jumped 68 times, followed up by an amazing trip to Florida over the winter to skydive with some of the WSC crew. The next season, Laura made over 200 skydives and trained to video tandems. She is currently working towards her Coach and AFF-I ratings and looking forward to another great season!
Laura spent the past winter in New Zealand! This was a long time dream and ended up being an amazing experience! She is focusing on skydiving this summer before getting back to her career in the Social Work field. Laura has been having a great time motorcycling and likes to play soccer. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, loves playing games and reading fantasy novels!
“Skydiving means more to me than just a fun weekend activity. It’s about community, engaging in meaningful connection with others. It’s about pushing myself out of my comfort zone, expanding awareness of self and engaging in the present moment with the world around me. It is a passion unlike any I have every known and I cannot imagine my life without it!”
