Front Desk Spotlight: Laura
Global’s vibrant Laura comes to us from Winnipeg, Manitoba. It only took her a decade to move here after her initial taste of Kelowna, but she made it! Growing up Laura was always athletic and spent a lot of time outside. During the summer, she could be found at her family cabin on Brereton Lake which is in the Whiteshell Provincial Park in Manitoba/Ontario. The cabin was an exciting place, always filled to the brim. They challenged its sleep capacity of 35 people by filling it with herself, 20 cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and friends. Their time was occupied by skiing, cliff jumping, tennis, soccer, football, beach time, card games and of course bon fires! Laura always has a cribbage board with her and can often be heard trying to trick people into playing. Always down for a good time you can catch Laura around town filling whatever room she is in with laughter.
- What is your biggest struggle with life or work?
Laura’s biggest struggle has been getting to the gym. She loves what it has been doing but hates dragging herself out in the cold to get there. Currently she is really enjoying the group classes taught by Marina, Doug and Gord! While they are tough, she has been having a lot of fun joking around with everyone there while getting a good sweat on!

Laura’s favourite person to spend time with is herself. Over the past year, she has had a lot of fun cultivating a stronger relationship with herself. It is very important to her to constantly check in with her wild soul so that she can bring her best self to all her relationships.
- If you could be granted one wish what would it be?
If Laura were granted one wish she would love for people to put down their judgements, hate, and embarrassment and make space for the love and gratitude. Her life purpose is to spread love and have everyone know that they belong.
- What do you work toward in your free time?
In her spare time, Laura works towards increasing her knowledge on anything that peaks her curiosity. While she loves to learn, she actually hates reading, her mind moves so quickly is it hard to keep her concentration. Her desire to learn will be lifelong but processing is often slow.
- How do you evaluate success?
When Laura thinks of success she immediately thinks “happiness”. If you aren’t happy doing something then why are you doing it? Be kind, be happy.

- If you were a super hero, what would your superpower be?
Milling over all the possible powers she could possess, Laura chose flying so that she could be with those she loves as often as possible no matter how far they may live. This would also allow her to be wherever she wanted to be whenever she desired. This would feed her wild soul.
