Laurie was the executive director of the Mary & Martha House in Ruskin, Fl. She has helped hundreds of women and their children flee and find freedom from domestic violence. She has aided these women in becoming self-sufficient so that they and their children never have to face that violence again. Laurie was an overcomer and she taught others to be too. She was a true force of nature and always fought for those that couldn't fight for themselves. Laurie saw beauty in everything. She loved to travel, walk along the beach, she marveled at sunsets and rainbows. Laurie loved Jesus. Her family was so very important to her, and she was the most loyal of friends.
