Some things that I like to do when I have time are:
-Traveling - I try to go to a completely new place at least once a year.
-Drawing/designing new home plans - I love houses!
-Reading the news - I read constantly and from different news sources. I love knowing what's going on in the world.
Exploring new restaurants - I started a Dinner Party Club. We travel to different restaurants around Indiana (not chains) and try their specialties.
-Biking - I stay off the streets, but love biking on the miles of trails near my house.
-Hiking - Turkey Run State Park is one of my favorite local places to hike.
-Winery tours - I love wine and have traveled as far as Napa Valley to visit a winery.
A native Hoosier, Laurie grew up in Columbus, Indiana and graduated from Indiana University with a BSN in Nursing. Prior to real estate, Laurie was a nurse for 15 years. She moved to Zionsville from the south side of INdianapolis because she fell in love with the Zionsville Community.
She takes her caring approach from nursing to all of her clients and loves to help them find their dream home. She is extreamly detailed and enjoys assisting her clients throughout the buying and selling process.
Laurie is an active athlete and is always on the go. You might find Laurie at the tennis courts or weightlifting with her husband. She has three children and they are equally as busy in the Zionsville school system. As a family, they love hiking and spending time oudoors in the country.

My family and I are active with our church, Meridian Street United Methodist, in Indianapolis . . . . I sing in the choir and we are heavily involved with the Interfaith Hospitality Network hosting homeless families at church several times each year. I enjoy volunteering in Zionsville with the annual Ghost Walk each October through the Sullivan Munce Cultural Center. I am currently serving on the Board of the Sullivan Munce (2014). I have served in various capacities in Zionsville with the Village Resident's Association. Finally, I was involved in our daughter's high school Rowing Team through the Indianapolis Rowing Center.
As a child, my family moved to several communities throughout the state of Indiana and built a new home in each town. My love of home construction started at an early age and I secured my contractors license when building my first home as an adult. Because of my interest and background in home construction, I bring added expertise to my clients when purchasing a home.
Beyond the Sale
"The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary"
I've always been taught to be dependable and consistent, and these are two important ingredients to success that I have implemented into my business. In my short time here on earth, I have found that there are more important things in life than just making money. I love helping people in any way I can and making a difference in the world. I have developed a strong philosophy of working hard and always staying truthful even when it is not the easiest option. I've always had a loving family to support me through the tough times and I could be happier where my life is headed.
"You have two hands. One is to help yourself, the second to help others."
I was born in northern Indiana, but moved just south of the Greenwood area when I was eight years old. My parents really taught me the importance of working hard, and also the importance of helping others and the only way to get what you want in life is to help others get what they want first.
I've been around the construction process since I was 17. It started when I decided to take a class that the school offered which was called building trades. It gave me a chance to see how houses were built, and gave me hands on experience. That class pointed me in the direction I wanted to take in life.
I started my career thinking I wanted to be an electrician, but that dream quickly diminished when I realized it was not something I was truly passionate about. At 19, I bought my first house and fixed it up and lived in it for about a year and then sold it. Then shortly after that I bought my second home which I fixed up as well, and moved into as well. So I realized that everything about homes really inspired me! Whether I was looking at "fixer upper" and seeing all the potential it had or looking at luxury homes online, I got excited about all the possibilities real estate had to offer.
