Some say Laura was born to work within the hospitality industry. Growing up, Laura assisted the family-owned bed and breakfast in the Berkshires. She later worked at fast-paced restaurants in New York. Her Canyon Ranch journey began in 1989 as the Director of Beauty Services at the Lenox property. After 15 years, Laura relocated to Tucson as the Corporate Director of Beauty Services and in 2018 she became the Business Director of the Canyon Ranch Aesthetics Med Spa. In February 2020 Laura was promoted to the Director of Spa and is still based in Tucson.
Laura has a deep working knowledge of all aspects of what makes the Canyon Ranch spa experience so transformative for guests. In her 32 years at Canyon Ranch, Laura has met and helped many guests and is inspired by their healing and wellness journeys: “Each guest’s journey is special and unique. I particularly love the guests that have returned for so many years or now live on property. It’s wonderful to watch their children who are the next generation, now coming to Canyon Ranch.”
When not working, Laura loves to spend time with her husband, twins and pets. An avid cook and fitness enthusiast, she is an example of how to live the well-way of life. “I try to live the Canyon Ranch lifestyle and instill that into my family every day.” Her moto? “Be true to your mind, body, and spirit, every day.”
