Laura was born and raised in Seattle, WA. Stepping out of her comfort zone, she moved across the country to attend school at Duke University. While at Duke, she experienced a renewal in her faith life and was blessed with wonderful friends and mentors. She graduated in 2020 with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Elementary Education.
She continues to live up to her childhood nickname, Tigger. She is full of energy, enthusiastic about life, and always ready for an adventure. She loves being around kids and desires to see God at work in young hearts.
She first heard about Serge through the Myhre family. The need for Missionary Kid Teachers in East Africa came up in conversation multiple times, but it wasn't until January of 2020 that God placed a desire in her heart to begin applying. As she engaged more with Serge, she felt an outpouring of God's love and grace. Missions became a possibility, then a reality.
Laura is serving as a Missionary Kid Teacher with the team in Bundibugyo, Uganda. She is filled with joy for what is to come and cannot wait to see how God continues to use her in Uganda.
