Since 1993, Laura has successfully maintained her commitment to individualized care and exceptional patient service. Laura is regarded by her colleagues as being the "go-to" aquatic physical therapist in the Boston area.

Experiences as an aquatics director, instructor trainer, consultant, and swimming coach led Laura to obtain her degree in physical therapy and specialize in therapeutic aquatics. Laura received a Master of Science degree in Physical Therapy from Boston University in 1989, a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education from Saint Lawrence University in 1978 and has completed postgraduate courses in manual therapy and water therapy techniques.

Being in and around water is not only her profession - it is her passion. Laura is an avid kayaker and swimmer, often going into the wilderness worldwide for extended camping and kayaking trips. There, she enjoys the peace, solitude, meditation and rejuvenation that the water provides.
