  About Me
 
Hi there. My name is Laura. I am British and moved to the USA to marry my wonderful husband, Sean, in October 2012. I have settled into LA life well, especially the beautiful weather. I grew up in the north of England with my parents and younger brother and a variety of pets. I love animals and the happiness they bring to our lives. My husband and I love to cook, go on hikes, play and watch sports, see movies and spend time with our fantastic family and friends. I also dearly love to volunteer my time to good causes, particularly causes that support children and help make their lives the best they can be. Since moving to the US I have been involved with the Make a Wish charity and also helped organize and setup outdoor cinema screenings for families in the more disadvantaged areas of LA. I love seeing how excited the kids get and there's a real sense of reward and enjoyment. I enjoy spending time with friends and their children and I have definitely become known as 'auntie Laura'..
