Laura traveled West from Ohio after receiving her degree in Outdoor Recreation and Education. The greater Yellowstone ecosystem has been her home ever since. She loves being outside and especially loves learning new things about the outdoors. The immense geological and human history that surrounds the park fascinates her. There is always something new to learn! Over the last seven years, she has led tours in Yellowstone National Park, on the Gallatin River in Montana, the Crazy Mountain Range of Montana, Tennessee, and North Carolina. To quote Laura, "the best part of my job is having the opportunity to share my passion of the outdoors with others."
