A Myrtle Beach, South Carolina native graduated from Clemson University in 2000 with a degree in Textiles. Through her studies, she learned extensively about interior design and the aesthetics of fabric. Throughout her life, she always knew she would become an entrepreneur. She first came to Jackson, Wyoming in the summer of 1999 for an interior design internship. She also met her future husband, Henry, that summer and had fallen in love with the Jackson area, knowing she would return one day. After graduation, she returned to Jackson and worked for various designers and retailers in the area as she prepared for opening her own store. In April of 2006, Festive Living opened its doors in Victor, Idaho just over the hill from Jackson, where Hayden, Henry, their twin boys and their dog, Heli now reside.
Laura is a longtime employee and friend of Festive Living since it’s opening in 2006. She returns to us after a five year hiatus during which time she lived in Montana and North Carolina. While away, she was a home staging consultant and real estate broker. Laura has an extensive background in home design and company management. She is thrilled to be back at Festive Living and putting her roots down in Teton Valley, ID. She resides in Victor with her husband, George, her son, Miles, and their four-legged family members, Opal & Pablo.
