Volunteer

 

Laura has volunteered at BodyMatters Australasia since 2021, motivated by her experience of growing up with a family member with an eating disorder. Her background is in law and finance. After completing a Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Communication (Journalism), Laura interned at Minter Ellison in Shanghai, China before relocating Vientiane, Laos in 2015 to work as a Legal Advisor. In 2016 she travelled the world. Her adventures included kayaking in Hawaii, trekking in New Zealand and walking 273km across England. That same year she co-hosted a fundraiser in the Adelaide Hills in support of the Butterfly Foundation. Following her long-time interest in finance and investing, Laura returned to study in 2017. She graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting & Corporate Finance) from the University of Adelaide in 2020 while working part-time with a private investment management company. In her capacity as a volunteer at BodyMatters Australasia, Laura hopes to contribute resources to assist those experiencing eating disorders and their support networks. She will be commencing a Master of Applied Finance in August 2021 and looks forward to continuing her volunteer work.
