Raised in Oakland, California, Laura is best known for her appearance as a cast member on Basketball Wives: LA and I Dream of Nene: The Wedding. After a near-fatal car accident at the age of seven put her in a three-month coma, Laura became an avid athlete and went on to play basketball on a full-ride scholarship at New Mexico State University, where she earned a degree in International Business with a minor in Marketing & Economy. She later went on to earn her Masters in Sports Psychology from JFK University, and was even offered the head coaching position with Santa Clara University Women’s Basketball Team.

After gaining 104 pounds during her fourth pregnancy, Laura reignited her passion for dieting and fitness, and is now developing a workout DVD geared towards women who feel most comfortable working out at home instead of the gym. A proud mother of four to Aloni, Hamiley, Alijah and Izela, Laura is also in the process of penning two children’s books.
