Laura commenced as a Cadet Trainer in 2018 and recently graduated from her cadetship as a Trainer. Part of the role of Trainer includes daily sound training sessions, daily individual walks or outings, and office-settling/quiet time practice for each dog.
Laura’s favourite part of the job is working with a dog’s individual personality and building a relationship with each dog. At a recipient’s six-week check-up, Laura enjoys seeing the impact and bond that each Hearing Assistance Dog has with their recipient.
Laura has two cats, Alfie and Storm. Storm is a special needs cat, who is blind, and Alfie who is a playful and affectionate cat. Laura enjoys spending time with them, and owns over 80 houseplants, crowning her the ‘crazy plant lady’ of ALHD.
