About Me

Laura is a physician, runner, and animal lover. She started running after finishing up her division 1 tennis career. Her first marathon was right before starting medical school and has since run 10 more marathons. She got into ultra running and ran her first 50 mile race in 2016 during the first year of her family medicine residency.
Laura is married to an amazing man, Steven, who himself has taken to running in recent years. She and Steven have a pug, Bailey, whom they love more than anything. Besides running, Laura enjoys tennis, visiting and volunteering at the Columbus Zoo, and Columbus Blue Jackets hockey.
