After receiving her bachelor’s degree in exercise and sport science from Texas State University, Laura focused her career on aquatic and fitness management. Over the course of eight years she moved cross-country three times to take on progressively more difficult roles. She left management in 2010 to finish her master’s degree in exercise and sport science from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. In 2014 she received her Health Fitness Specialist certification from the American College of Sports Medicine. She is now a writer, entrepreneur and the “Sporty Girl CEO” of Girls Gone Sporty. When she’s not working, Laura can be found running her dogs, mountain biking (sort of), lifting weights, trying new workout DVDs, attempting yoga or watching shamelessly trashy television.
Laura is also the host of the High Impact Blogging podcast, a Fitness Expert for SheKnows and the Alternative Fitness Expert for About.com.
