Laura started Nippers (junior surf life saving) at the age of 7 and has been running, swimming and keeping fit ever since… doing her best to keep up with her training buddies / dogs Nippa, Narlie and Nugget.

She has travelled the world, living and working overseas, before returning home to Australia and working a range of different jobs, leading ultimately to becoming a teacher.

Loz’s self-confessed weaknesses are beer and chocolate (cheers!).
