Laura is the newest member of the reception team and has settled in well. She is a recent graduate of the University of Brighton graduating with a first class honours degree in sport and exercise science. Originally from Southampton, Laura plans to continue her study at the university hoping to start a PhD part time in the near future with a focus on the implementation of exercise programmes in care homes. In her spare time Laura enjoys going to the gym and yoga classes; both of which help with her true love of running. Laura has been a member of Southampton AC since the age of 9 and was the president of the athletics team for 2 years whilst at university. Recently, she completed the Beachy Head Marathon which she hopes will be the first of many. All this running gives Laura an excuse to spend time baking (and eating) vegan cakes and biscuits!
