Laura grew up in a loving family amongst her three siblings. When Laura was 12 she experienced the death of her two-week old baby brother. She moved to Colorado when she was 15 years old and met her husband-to-be in her church's youth group. Laura and Jonas have been married for 13 years and have four kids. Laura was 18 when we she got married and her husband was 17. They have worked hard throughout their years of marriage and raising kids - they worked hard at their jobs to pay the bills, worked hard at school to get good grades, and worked hard at raising amazing kids. Laura will be forever grateful to KPWE and the donors that have helped make it possible for Laura to complete a bachelors degree of science, with a major in Physics and a minor in Mathematics. Laura's goal is to go on to doctoral studies in Physics. She hopes to continue to impart the knowledge of the world around us to future generations.
