How it Began
Laura became our Brand Ambassador in 2014 and emulates the qualities and values of Queensland Country Health Fund.
She is a naturally fit and personifies the value of health and wellness. Her grounded and genuine upbringing has made her modest about her achievements but hard working and professional in her working life.
She is someone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously but is up for any challenge that life throws at her.
Laura continues to be a proud Queensland Country Member and Brand Ambassador. Her little family she shares with her husband Mark, has grown and she is now a busy mum of three – Barney, Franky and Billie - with her fourth due in late January 2023.
Even with her busy schedule three children and pregnancy she has kept health, fitness and well-being at top of mind from walks with the children to pilates classes.
