About: Hey guys! My name is Laura and I am currently a senior double majoring in Advertising and Physical Culture and Sports with a concentration in Sports Media and pursuing a Business Foundations Certificate. After graduation I plan to pursue a career in media relations within athletics or professional sports.

I was born and raised in Dallas, TX by two people that have always encouraged me to make mistakes and learn from them, to experience life to the fullest, and to never have any regrets. My parents are incredibly sarcastic yet the most easy going people I've ever met. My mom likes to joke around and say that I got all my negative qualities, especially my stubbornness, but my dad says otherwise.

When I'm not on the bike or on the sidelines you'll most likely catch me color coding my google calendar, with my third cup of coffee of the day on hand, or probably making my way to the coffee machine.

Why I Ride

I ride for our pillar of charity, not just the monetary charity but the charity of giving a voice to a cause. I’ve been very fortunate to not have experienced a life with cancer so far but others have not been as fortunate.
I believe that stories are incredibly powerful and I want to be able to use the open dialogue that Texas 4000 has provided me with to listen to the stories and memories of loved ones.

Lastly, if there is someone you would like me to ride for, please feel free to send me an email. Thank you!
