Laura was the black sheep of her family; nobody else understood her passion for outdoors and wildlife exploration. Her interests often included a love of danger as well: coyote dens, swamps, and many uninhabited places far from home.
Her love of animals made her a passionate vegan, but over time she began to change her view and now eats meat. In fact, she now processes her own meat and tans hides.
In 2008, in need of an adventure, Laura took a one-way flight to Mexico, and hitchhiked her way around the country and back home. She now shoes horses and also briefly worked on an offshore crab boat. She also loves teaching survival.
