Laura’s love for the water started at a young age growing up in Long Island, where she was immersed in fishing, digging clams and boating. Her passion for cooking healthy, fresh and local foods was a gift from her grandfather, who spent Saturdays with her wandering the farms of Long Island.

At present, she works on various yachts and estates around the world.
