Laura has a razor focused dedication to her students across all aspects of their development, ensuring they leave college in the best possible position to enter into employment or progress onto the next level. Her experience within the tourism and hospitality industry helps provide the best opportunities and contacts for her students, including developing a partnership at her old restaurant in Florida where students can apply for an internship and to work there. She also created the ’12 Days of Christmas Kindness’ project after lockdown last year to give back to those who need it most, raising money for 12 different community groups, along with gifts, food supplies and personal notes from students.
