Laura’s passion for sport started during her school days, when she enjoyed taking part in every sport the school offered. Winning accolades for her sporting abilities, demonstrated Laura versatility, playing in Netball, Hockey, Tennis and Athletics teams. However it was her determination to disperse the stigma attached to young women playing the sport of rugby that encouraged her to take up the sport herself and become a role model and spokesperson for the game. With the added support of the RFU and her own rugby club, a synergy was established between Laura playing rugby and performing at Twickenham for the England fans and players. It offered Laura a platform, and she was able to raise awareness to show that woman can play all sports.
Laura is currently focused on Olympic weight lifting, crossfit and hockey and is looking forward to joining Team Ice Maiden in February, the group will head to Norway to continue their training and Laura will be there alongside them. Ice Maiden consists of 5 women from the Army attempting the be the first all female group to cross the antarctic unassisted. During their Journey, they will be collecting data to form important research on how their bodies react to this challenge both physically and mentally. Laura has written a piece of music to inspire the women on their journey, and will be joining them on the last leg of their expedition early in 2019. In 2017, Laura will also be dedicating her time to the importance of Mental Health, joining forces with the charity Heads Together, under the Royal Foundation umbrella, they are the charity partner of the London Marathon this year which will see Laura run and perform at the event, another showcase of bringing sport and music together.
