    Laura loves to travel (especially the planning process, which she finds almost more fun than the actual travel!). These plans usually involve new places where you can find her hiking and eating great food during the day and working on a puzzle at night. Laura also enjoys running and hiking close to home as well as reading and baking. She is a member of the Rady Children’s Hospital’s Committee that advises on priorities for genetics research (SOMI – Study of Outcomes in Mothers and Infants).
