Laura is passionate about Sport + Spine’s inventive approach to physical therapy: “It’s broadened my eyes. We look at the whole person, so much more than a textbook approach. I’ve always wanted to work in such an innovative environment.” At Sport + Spine, Laura works with patients daily, as well as students participating in their clinical placement at Sport + Spine. A Kansas City native, Laura is a lifelong athlete and is an especially avid volleyball player. She enjoys applying this athleticism to her work at Sport + Spine. A Kansas City native, Laura loves playing sand volleyball and being outdoors, whether it’s on the beach, up in the mountains, or simply being outside on a nice day. She loves her black lab puppy, and has a strong desire to travel the world. Her latest adventure: two months volunteering in South Africa. Learn more about Laura on the Sport + Spine blog.
