Laura grew up in Kirkland, staying local for her undergraduate degree at the University of Washington. She completed her Physician Assistant program near Portland, Oregon in 2022 and was excited by the opportunity to return to her hometown to work in orthopedics. She has always been interested in sports medicine and is looking forward to specializing in shoulder conditions and procedures, assisting Dr. Koo.

In her free time, Laura enjoys the various outdoor activities the Northwest has to offer. She loves to ski, hike, paddle board, and spend time with friends and family.
