As the creative and editorial director of Tampa Bay Parenting Magazine, Laura has been able to combine her two passions…motherhood and journalism. She and her husband purchased the established brand two years ago and have completely redesigned the magazine and its website to share even more local stories and fun events for families in Tampa Bay. She would never claim to be a parenting expert which is why she loves sharing expertise from the EXPERTS whether it’s a doctor, educator, party planner, etc. She and her husband also own TampaBayDateNightGuide.com, a website dedicated to connecting couples with fun things to do in Tampa Bay! Before parenthood, Laura was an award-winning television reporter who spent her career working at TV stations across the state of Florida. She hasn’t completely stepped away from the business and continues to freelance in the Tampa Bay market. The mother of two is also a member of The Junior League of Tampa, serves on several local boards, and volunteers with her sons’ schools.
