Laura grew up in Maryland with a passion for the Chesapeake Bay and exploring the outdoors. After completing her B.S. in Biology from Towson University, and a summer internship leading kayak eco-tours for Delaware Seashore State Park, she became hooked on educating others on coastal ecology and maritime history. Having worked for the Maryland Environmental Service and Delaware State Parks, Laura developed a passion for connecting people with greenspaces, and teaching others to enjoy the outdoors safely, respectfully, and sustainably. She also has a lifetime goal of paddling around the entire Delmarva peninsula – over 650 miles!
