Laura has a Superpower Too !

I’ve been a lifeguard pretty much my whole adult life but take my “LifeSaving” to a different level these days.

From rock climbing & Windsurfing in the USA, to Diving, Snowboarding and Wakeboarding here in Holland, I usually need to “save” someone or something in one way or another.

I’ve also chosen the candy Lifesavers since they are so sweet, but can be rock hard when necessary… Kind of like having me as mentor :-). Be sure to check out my “Name card” during introduction week.

I’m a sports instructor, a Landscape Architect and an Architect turned teacher when I finally started to practice what I had been preaching for years… to Follow your passion!

I’ve written 2 books on women in the building industry called “Building Passion” and anyone wanting a free copy only needs to ask. Thy tell the women’s stories of why they love what they do so much, and by doing so, encourage other women to go for those top jobs most often controlled by men.

Coordinating must be one of my “things” since you will find me coordinating a lot this year. It could also be because I am slightly a control freak (saying “slightly” is being nice to myself). Starting off with the Introduction Week, Project Community and the Mentor Coaching (all of you will be assigned to a mentor) and later on with Design Exploration. Loving to coordinate only has drawbacks if there are too many things at the same time. The Lifesaving will be popping up once in a while in my role as coordinator and as mentor.

I’m not a softy or a pushover – I’m sweet, but can be as hard as Lifesavers rock candy 🙂
