The ability to see the positive in each day, and to make people smile, goes a long way. For that reason, Laura lives by the words her husband reminded her of early and often; “Today is going to be the best day of the year.”
Laura entered the world of customer service immediately upon graduating from The College of Wooster, and ended up making a career of it (with a pause for motherhood). While the industries changed (communications, manufacturing, educational services), the theme remained the same; making sure customers were happy. Laura knows that when customers are happy, her team is doing their job.
Always an adventurer, Laura loves to travel. She’s been to 48 of our 50 states (thanks to a college summer spent driving around the country), backpacked throughout Europe, and continues to travel with her family. She and her husband have two adult children.
In addition to the travel bug, Laura grew up playing numerous sports; soccer, field hockey, and lacrosse, and being part of those teams gave her a foundation for working with others. They also fostered her interest in giving back to the sports community, and she has been fortunate enough to coach several youth and high school lacrosse teams, over the years.
With the combination of service and team, it’s almost like Laura was made for her role at Ashton!
