Her knowledgeable and respectful presentation style makes her a popular presenter at universities and industry seminars and conferences.

One of Laura’s favourite things to do outside work is play hockey (very seriously, of course) for the Glebe District Hockey Club, where she is also the Administrator for the Women’s Committee.
