More on Laurel’s story…

What is your spirit animal?
“I don't have a spirit animal, but Ina Garten is my spirit Food Network host. She is gracious, warm, an entrepreneur and makes crazy good brownies. She embodies everything I try to be!” 

What is something most people don’t know about you?
"My first job was in a cherry orchard. I swamped cherries, which means I transferred the cherries from the bins to the tractor. It was a great summer job I got to do with my best friend and had toned arms by the end.”

How would you describe yourself in one sentence?
“Happily figuring it out as I go.”
