At the age of 10 Laura became involved with a victim’s group in her local area of Co. Down. She helps local people affected by “The Troubles”, and has been elected onto the committee each year since the age of 17. The group has been a big influence in her life and it is only fitting that this passion for peace has transferred into the start of her career.
Laura became involved with PeacePlayers when undertaking her university placement year, and took on a full time position after graduating from Ulster University with a BSc (Hons) in Business Studies with Marketing. PeacePlayers also led to Laura being recruited to play rugby for Ballynahinch RFC.
