Laura moved to Faversham from Medway with her now husband in 2008, and loved the town so much that they decided to stay and raise a family here. Laura studied Philosophy at the University of Southampton before completing PGCE at Canterbury Christ Church. For ten years she was a teacher and head of department in a Medway grammar school but retrained as a forest school leader and now runs Green Folk Outdoor Learning to provide educational experiences outside for people in her local community alongside a role as a tutor with the Wildwood Trust.
Outside of work, Laura enjoys spending time in with her family and friends, foraging, walking, crafting, and music. She is a trustee of Faversham Food Bank and is involved in community projects on and offline. Laura is very much looking forward to bringing her enthusiasm and experiences to her new role as a town councillor to help Faversham continue to be such a special place to live.
