Laura has been married to Ian for almost 27 years, has 5 kids ages 16-23, lives on a farm with chickens, horses and a really big dog. She has a large garden where she putters when she can and loves to make maple syrup in the springtime. She is an avid reader, always eager to learn from others. She was made aware of the issue of human trafficking in 2013 and God hasn’t let it leave her heart, inviting her to do what she can to support survivors.

Laura is the Founder of SEEDS – Supporting Every Eve’s Daughter Safely, which is a local charity that provides a home and programs for survivors of sexual exploitation in the Waterloo Region.
