“A woman truly is in her prime when she’s over 50 and drops the weight of other people’s expectations.”
Laura follows her guiding philosophy of “walk purposely; carry a magic wand, and make things happen,” allowing herself to follow her curiosity throughout life. Described as smart, strong, and loyal, she unearthed a new appreciation for herself through her 50s. “Make yourself happy and healthy first, then the rest is easy.”
Passionate about her children and advocacy work, she approaches life experiences with humor, honesty, and integrity. Laura loves to cook, read, write plays, and act. She is looking forward to eventual retirement where she wants to audition for acting roles in LA.
With a newfound love for herself, Laura credits her 50s to a significant period of growth in her life: “I’m much healthier and happier these days, and have a new love for myself, which allows me the freedom to love others.”
Laura’s advice to her younger self: “Be you. The world will adapt.”
Laura now: “It’s my turn. I’ve lived so many aspects of my life for everyone else for 60 years and I’m finally focusing on me.”
