Laura has her 500-hour BASI Pilates certification, a Personal Training Certificate from National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), and started the BASI Legacy program in 2021. She was born and raised in New York. When moving to San Diego in 2010, she knew immediately that this was home.

With her diverse educational background (BA in Philosophy from SUNY New Paltz and MS in Statistics from SDSU) and over 15 years of experience working as a hairstylist, Laura enjoys interacting with a diverse community. More than anything, Laura is committed to helping each client with their confidence, self-improvement, and self-empowerment goals. After all, fitness and hairstyling are about so much more than improving one's physical appearance.

She truly has an ingrained passion for personal fitness and exercise ever since being introduced to it at a young age by her mother (who was also a trainer). Laura's mom would take her to the gym when she was “sick” from school. Laura even ran her first race when she was 2 years old and continues to run over 35 years later. Mat Pilates made a huge impact on her life. She was so impressed with the changes it made in her body. It would then take nearly 10 years before she finally decided to do the training and she couldn’t be happier that she did!
